Jordon Elijah Robertson (b. Aug. 4, 1998) is a young defensive tackle who developed during the 2016 season. He will compete for playing time as a redshirt freshman.
Robertson played under head coach Michael Johnson at Bishop Dunne High School, where he helped the Falcons to earn a 12-1 record in both his junior and senior seasons, including the 2014 campaign, when they won the state championship.
Robertson was rated the 85th-best defensive tackle in the class of 2016 by ESPN.
He was named a second-team Texas Association of Private and Parochial Schools All-State defensive lineman and a first-team all-district performer. He also was named to Dave Campbell’s Texas Football Super Team as a senior.
Robertson suited up for the White team in the 2017 spring game, but recorded no statistics.
Despite his athletic potential, I don’t look for him to make much of an impact for a loaded interior defensive line this season. He still needs to add weight.
If not, a move to defensive end almost surely has to be in his future. Around 260 pounds is the minimum weight I think he needs to be an effect Big 12 defensive tackle, and even that is fairly light, all things considered.
