Name: Jordan Robles
Position: Defensive End
High School: Salem Hills High in Salem Hills, Utah
Date Committed: February 28, 2010
An early commit for the Utes in the 2011 class is big DE Jordan Robles. He is the younger brother of Utah QB Griff Robles and looks to add to Utah's tradition of great defensive ends.
Robles, like his brother, is an athlete. He played quarterback, running back, defensive end and even basketball in high school. He has a 6'8'' wingspan and does a great job getting his hands in the passing lanes. He looks to be a force on the defensive front once he adds more bulk to his large frame.
In his Junior season, Robles recorded 29 tackles in nine games at 2.6 tackles per game. He had one sack and an interception. In a game against Union, he recorded seven tackles.
Robles was the MVP of the Salt Lake National Underclassman Camp in 2009 as a quarterback. He also participated in the Nike Elite 11 camp. At the NUC camp Robles ran a 5.2 forty and had a 25'' vertical leap. He showed great elusiveness with his 4.64 performance in the shuttle run.
According to ESPN, Robles also drew attention from BYU, UCLA and Iowa State. After high school, he plans on serving an LDS mission, just like his older brother.
