Robinson's Comeback

Arkansas remains in the forefront of the recruiting picture for Little Rock Central prospect Antwain Robinson, who expects a home visit from South Carolina soon.

While both of the Little Rock Central's state titles will be logged into Antwain Robinson's memory for a long time, it's understandable that the 2003 one is thought about a little more fondly.

That's because Robinson (6-1, 235, 4.7) was on the field for the 2003 championship, but had to watch the 2004 Class AAAAA finals win over West Memphis from the sideline because of a knee injury that kept him out the entire season.

"I was happy for the fellas, but it's tough to watch and not be a part of it," Robinson said. "I would have loved to be out there making plays, but I'll do that next year. It was a nice experience for us to win it again."

Robinson is one of five Little Rock Central players expected to take an official visit to the University of Arkansas on Jan. 28-30.

He does not have any other visits set up yet, but does report interest lately from South Carolina, North Carolina and Rice.

"Coach Madre Hill of South Carolina is supposed to come by and visit me early in January sometime," Robinson said. " But Arkansas is in pretty good shape with me right now."

Robinson had 81 tackles and 12 sacks as a defensive end back in 2003, but is expected to be a linebacker in college.

"I about 85 percent healthy right now and still working on my rehab," Robinson said. "I'll be ready to make plays next year."
