A host of schools have extended offers to Class of 2017 cornerback Amik Robertson over the past week.
That list does not include LSU.
However, an offer may be imminent after Robertson attended LSU’s junior camp, “Boys From The Boot” this past weekend, The highly-touted cornerback spoke with both LSU defensive backs coach Corey Raymond and defensive line coach Ed Orgeron, who had no shortage of praise for the in-state prospect.
“Coach Corey said he was going to come check me out during the season and said that I was a good player,” Robertson told SEC Country.
“Coach Orgeron said that I was a great athlete as well. He mentioned the great game I had against Mandeville. He will also take some visits to my school. They both said that they enjoyed my film and that I was a standout player.”
That playoff game Orgeron referred to is one in which Robertson lined up against the coach’s two sons.
The 5-foot-9, 165-pounder hauled in an 80-yard touchdown reception, which was one of a handful of big plays for Thibodaux High School (La.).
While both Orgeron and Raymond have a high degree of familiarity with Robertson, the cornerback remains steadfast on turning interest into an offer.
“Well, they didn’t offer me, but it just motivated me to push even harder,” Robertson said. “LSU is a school I dreamed of playing for since a young age. I just loved the school and the atmosphere out there.
“(Not receiving an offer) just gave me another incentive to try and prove myself to the coaches. I just want them to know they aren’t making a mistake if they do offer me.”
