Robinson is a 6-0, 225-pound running back from Hebron, TX. He's rated as Scout.com's No. 27 ranked running back and a four-star recruit. He originally verballed to Texas but had a falling out with the program when he expressed an interest in taking additional visits.
Robinson is expected to be a factor in the race to be the starting tailback. Only one player on the roster has a D-I carry. One drawback is that Robinson will not be able to be in full pads until next week since he is getting a late start.
