Liberty (Bedford, VA) defensive tackle Daryl Robertson was one of the top performers on defense at the Nike Camp in Blacksburg last month. “I did well in the one-on-one drills,” Robertson said. “They said that was the most important thing. I think my footwork was all right.”
Besides being relatively happy with his own performance, the 6-3, 285-pound Robertson acknowledged two other players he thought stood out.
“[Forestville (MD) offensive tackle Antonio] Logan-El and [Meadowbrook defensive end John] Graves,” Robertson said. “Logan-El was big but he could move as well. I didn’t get a chance to go against him because he was in the other line.”
Robertson has yet to receive other offers besides the two he already has – from Maryland and Virginia Tech, respectively. But several other programs have come to Liberty to visit during the Evaluation period.
“Wake Forest, UVa, Virginia Tech came in and the Ole Miss coach called me,” Robertson said.
Coach Anthony Poindexter visited from Virginia. Robertson believes Virginia Tech plans a return trip to Liberty on May 18th and says that coach Frank Beamer will come around then.
“When coach Poindexter came from UVa, we had gotten out of school early,” Robertson said. “I stayed around, but coach Poindexter didn’t really talk to me. He talked to coach Watts, but I’m not sure what they talked about.”
Nothing much has change for Robertson, who replied “yes, sir” when asked if he still planned on taking official visits before making a final decision. Virginia Tech is still in strong shape for this talented defensive prospect.
