Davis on Robertson: "When you watch him wrestle, I think he's got a lot of growth to do. He's very athletic and has some things that you can't teach. I think he'll get better as he's in our room with the competition and the coaching we have. He has great upside and wants to excel academically. Discipline wise, he's good, but there is room for growth. I like that and we're all excited to have him here."
