After legal ruling, former Mich. St. football commit Auston Robertson's status unclear

By

Auston Robertson, a four-star defensive end from Wayne (Ind.) High School, and former 2016 commitment to Michigan State, can have misdemeanor battery charges dropped in one year, after entering a diversionary program, according to Allen Superior Court 4 records.

And according to Robertson, Michigan State remains No. 1 on his recruiting list. He told the Free Press that MSU and other schools have kept recruiting him but that he still considers MSU his leader, at this point.

“I’m hoping to make a decision some time soon,” Robertson said in a phone interview. “I’m just happy to get past this.”

There’s also, of course, the issue of whether the Spartans are still willing to give Robertson a scholarship.

The 18-year-old Robertson, a 6-foot-5, 250-pound defensive end ranked No. 10 nationally at his position by rivals.com, committed to MSU in June, over scholarship offers from Alabama, Ohio State, Michigan and many others.
