Interview II: Tielor Robinson

We caught up with Running Back prospect and Black Knight commit, Tielor Robinson. After seeing the 6-0,210 power back (4.57 40) on film, I can only conclude that the Army coaches are excited with anticipation of Tielor sporting the Black, Gold & Gray uniform of Army. Here's our second installment of conversations with Tielor, as we continue to look at Army's class of 2003.

Tielor Robinson: It feels really great. I have been looking online and following the other recruits. Some of the guys that were with me on my official visit and they are great group of guys. I will be working hard to get some playing time as a freshman.

ArmySports.com: Talk a little about that offense at Army and where the coaches have talked to you about fitting in at.

Tielor Robinson: Army runs the one back offense and they want to be able to have someone who not only can run between the tackles, but also take it outside, as well as catch the ball out of the backfield. I really love that offense and fits into my style of running."

ArmySports.com: Are you looking to making a mark right away as a freshman?
