4-Star DE Sets Clemson Visit
Thanks to the persistence of Clemson tight ends coach Billy Napier, 6-4, 220 pound defensive end prospect Travian Robertson will make one final trip in the recruiting process.
"I just got off the phone a few minutes ago with coach Napier," he said in an interview with CUTigers.com Monday. "It basically came down to me talking to my parents and my head coach. My parents said it was fine. I just need to make sure my coach doesn't mind me missing a day of practice. I don't think he will."
Apparently, coach Bowden was not able to meet with Robertson when he visited Clemson earlier this summer and Robertson thinks it is only fair to speak with him before announcing a decision.
"I wasn't planning to make another visit but I think I should go talk with the head coach," he said. "I think it would be very important to do that. I want to be fair. I want to give them all the same chance. I already met with the head coaches at the others."
So when will the much anticipated visit actually go down? "I will probably go down next weekend, around the 21st," Robertson responded. "I will probably go down that Friday."
The Scotland High standout will also likely end up playing in the Palmetto state, but don't forget about N.C. State just yet. "I was leaning hard to Clemson and South Carolina. It was hard to let North Carolina State go. I would say it is down to those three," he said.
And what about a timeframe for a verbal commitment?
"I am pretty sure I will be ready to make my decision that next week. I want to talk with my head coach. He wants to make sure I do everything the right way," Robertson added.
Scout.com currently ranks Robertson as the No. 14 overall defensive end in the country. He has offers from Clemson, South Carolina, Virginia Tech, Tennessee, N.C. State and North Carolina.
