Clemson ‘up there’ for elite Georgia WR

By

It isn’t often that Clemson offers a freshman prospect. The Tigers are judicious with their offers, don’t dispense them in bulk and tend to wait later than sooner in a prospect’s recruiting process before pulling the trigger.

An exception, though, is Hogansville (Ga.) Callaway 2020 wide receiver Michael Robertson, who earned an offer from Clemson last September during his first high school season.

Robertson visited Clemson a month later for the N.C. State game, and intends to return soon.

“During spring practice,” Robertson told The Clemson Insider. “I’m very excited. My family and I loved it.”

Robertson said his father knows the father of Clemson tight end Milan Richard, a native of Savannah, Ga. So, Robertson looks forward to seeing Richard as well as checking out the new football complex.

“I’m excited to see the new facility coach talked about,” Robertson said. “And my bro Milan.”

Robertson gave a mature answer beyond his years when asked what he likes about the facility:

“I’m thinking about my education and maximizing it. They have that as far as networking with alumni, so I would be straight after football.

“The new facilities would cater to that.”

Georgia was first to offer Robertson in January 2016. Clemson entered the mix next on September 15, followed by Tennessee and California the same week. Since then, he has added offers from Auburn, Florida, LSU, Memphis, Mississippi, Mississippi State and UCF. He projects to be one of the top-ranked prospects in his class.

Where does Clemson stand with him early on?

“They are up there,” he said. “In the top three.”

Robertson visited N.C. State in February and UCF earlier this month.
