In which BracketCat counts down the 50th day until the 2018 kickoff with a profile of defensive tackle Jordon Robertson.

There once was another slightly undersized K-State defender who wore No. 50 and played with a nasty streak. Just ask Eric Crouch about Travis Ochs.

Jordon Elijah Robertson (b. Aug. 4, 1998) is a young defensive tackle who has spent the last two years developing his craft. He will continue to battle for playing time in the interior of the defensive line after he redshirted in 2016 and did not see any game action in 2017.

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.

He was rated the 85th-best defensive tackle in the class of 2016 by ESPN.

Robertson 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.

This year, he started at three-tech defensive tackle for the Purple team, collecting an assisted tackle, half a sack and half a tackle for loss. But considering Trey Dishon started for the White team, I assume Robertson is basically out No. 3 defensive tackle at this time.

While he has put on 25 pounds since the beginning of last season, I still think Robertson is a little undersized, even for a three-tech. He needs to keep hitting the weights and shoot for around 280 pounds.
