Arkansas linebacker commitment and Memphis East Marcus Robinson returned to the football field this past weekend, something that he wasn't sure was going to be the case a couple of weeks ago.
That's when Robinson (6-4, 215), who committed to Arkansas in early August, went down in his team's season opener with what was first believe to be a broken leg.
"It turned out to be a bruise high on my leg that really hurt," Robinson said. "When it happened, I thought ‘my senior season is done.' But thankfully it wasn't as bad as I was worried it was and I was able to get back out on the field last Friday."
The game also marked East's first win of the season - a 36-6 victory over Central - after opening with two losses.
East allowed Central just 131 yards of total offense.
"It's tough to not be able to help, but I think we came out and executed better overall this week," Robinson said. "That's what had been missing."
East boasts several Division I prospects in Ole Miss defensive line pledge Herbert Moore (6-3, 335), UCLA offensive line commitment Christian Moore (6-3, 280) and cornerback Cedric Jones, who plans to sign with Toledo.
"We have a very good team and some very good players," Robinson said. "We just have to work hard and go out there and get it done."
Robinson plans to be on hand for Arkansas' game in Little Rock Saturday and in Fayetteville the following week with Alabama.
"I think we are going to have a great season," Robinson said. "When I came up for my visit, those guys were working hard and we have a lot of talent."
