Robertson has athletic bloodlines on both sides of his family. His mother, Kim Mulkey, won two national basketball championships as a player at Louisiana Tech in 1981 and 1982 and an Olympic gold medal in 1984 before becoming head coach at Baylor, where she won two more national titles in 2005 and 2012. His father Randy was a backup on Louisiana Tech's NCAA Division II championship football team in 1973. After two years as a light-hitting backup middle infielder, Robertson replaced the departed Alex Bregman at shortstop and raised his game at the plate. He's shown himself to be a solid contact hitter with excellent strike zone awareness the last two years with the ability to line the ball to the gaps. Heading into regionals, Robertson led Division I in runs scored with 76. Defense remains Robertson's best attribute. He's got the range to play shortstop in pro ball and is equally adept at second base, although his arm is below-average. After spurning the Indians as a 32nd-round pick last year, he should be a solid senior sign as a productive Southeastern Conference shortstop with excellent leadership skills as well.
