Former University of Illinois signee and 3-star recruit Jason (JJ) Robertson has enrolled at the University of North Dakota for spring semester 2013. The 6-0, 185 pound WR attended a community college this fall and did not play football. We believe he should have all 4 years of eligibility remaining at UND and will be able to participate in spring practices.
Robertson was senior high school teammates with UND freshman fullback Kevin Bayer at Lincoln-Way East HS in Frankfort, IL. Idaho Head Coach Paul Petrino originally recruited and signed Robertson as a member of Ron Zook’s staff before Zook got fired and Tim Beckman was hired prior to signing day 2012.
Robertson will join the already deep WR position group at UND, where the top 5 receivers all return. We see him taking on a future role similar to what UND WR extraordinaire Greg Hardin takes on now – a consistent deep threat, speed guy, and playmaker for the offense.
As a senior, Robertson caught 39 balls for 881 yards and 12 TDs. He is the 10th known addition to the 2013 class.
