Four-Star Commitment Likes AU Family

Auburn commitment Greg Robinson talks about his trip to see the Tigers celebrate the BCS National Championship.

Thibodaux, La.--A four-star prospect and the number seven rated offensive guard in the country, big Greg Robinson committed to the Auburn Tigers in early December after a year-long struggle between coach Gene Chizik's program and the home state LSU Tigers. Over the weekend the 6-6, 285 lineman was on hand as Auburn celebrated its BCS National Championship and he says it was a memorable experience to be a part of at Jordan-Hare Stadium.

"I went down just to see the atmosphere of them winning the championship," Robinson tells Inside The Auburn Tigers. "It was a great experience. I saw a lot of smiles on the faces of people. Deep down you could tell what they had really worked hard for had paid off. The experience was great. Hopefully when I get there we can experience it again."

Coming from a school that has historically been a breeding ground for LSU, Robinson is the second player in as many years to choose Auburn from Thibodaux joining Trovon Reed. He notes that for him things have really slowed down on the recruiting front since he committed to Auburn.

"It has actually been a lot better," Robinson says. "I've had some people that have still been calling but I try not to let anybody take my focus. Auburn is where I want to be so it's really no big deal."

Rated as a guard on the next level by Scout.com, Robinson says he's grown an inch since the start of his junior year and at 6-6 now he looks more like a tackle. With the athleticism to play inside or outside, he says he just wants to work on getting physically ready to play next year if needed.

"I'm just going to work on getting stronger," Robinson says. "I don't really want to put on that much weight. I want to turn everything into muscle and start working for a spot. I'm in good shape I just have to work a little harder."

Now just over a week away from signing day, Robinson says he's ready to make it official and sign with Auburn. With so many positives about Chizik's program at the moment he says for him it's all about the Auburn Family.

"It's like a home away from home," Robinson says. "It's like family. I feel it a lot there. Everybody is going to be there for me. I know that if I have a bad day I would be able to talk to the coaches because they want to know what's going on. I can't wait to get up there. War Eagle!"
