Earnest Robinson talks camps

Earnest Robinson, wide receiver from Pinson Valley, Ala., is one of the top prospects in the South for 2013. He has collected five scholarship offers and returned home Monday from Alabama. He also visited another SEC school.


"I went to Alabama's camp today," said Earnest Robinson. "The camp was really good. I went out there to compete. There was a lot of good competition out there. I felt like I did really good.

"I met with coach Saban in his office. He told me how much he liked seeing me work hard. He told me again I have an offer from them. He wants me to come to all the games in the fall and get comfortable with everything at Alabama."

Robinson also enjoyed working with recently hired Alabama receivers coach Mike Groh.

"Coach Groh was great to work with," he said. "He is real cool. He makes you work hard and compete. He lets you have fun out there. He was really cool."

The offer from the Crimson Tide is one which stands out to the elite prospect.

"I really like Alabama a lot," Robinson "I like how hard they were pushing me out there today. I really like how hard they make you work."

Robinson has offers from Alabama, Auburn, Florida State, Mississippi State and Oregon.

"It's great to get these offers," he said. "I don't know right now when I will make a decision. I know my parents want me to stay in-state, but I haven't decided yet.

Robinson also camped in Starkville.

"The Mississippi State camp was nice, but Alabama was a lot better," he said. "It was all right though. I liked how they were working with the receivers. I had a private little work-out session catching balls.

"When I first got there I walked in the building and started talking to the coach. He was saying they had an offer for me. They said they have wanted me from the start. Mississippi State is an all right school."

Robinson will attend Auburn's camp on Sunday. He plans to visit Florida State in the near future.
