Name: Cheyenn Robertson
Height: 6’3″
Weight: 233 lbs.
High school: Union City (NJ) St. Peter’s Prep
Position: Linebacker
Class: Redshirt freshman
Jersey number: #92
Last year: Robertson redshirted.

I talked a little bit about Robertson as a preferred walk-on in the 2015 class (LINK). Last season he was reportedly playing Buck linebacker in practice, but as most freshman walk-ons do, he redshirted and did not create much buzz.

This year that Buck linebacker position has disappeared under Don Brown, and Robertson was playing linebacker in the spring. Part of that may be his lack of size for the defensive end position, at least right now. I saw Robertson play some linebacker in the spring and he was generally what I thought he was coming out of high school. However, some of these walk-ons get some time on special teams or in mop-up duty, so we may see him for a few snaps here or there.

Projection: Mop-up duty
