Heavily Recruited RB Talks About Big Cat Trip

One of the top football prospects in the state of Tennessee discusses his trip to Auburn.

Memphis, Tenn.--Jovon Robinson, rated a four-star running back by Scout.com, checked out Auburn's Big Cat Weekend and the big back said he liked what he saw.

"The visit went well and I did a lot of sightseeing," the 6-1, 218-pounder said. " I talked to a lot of Tigerettes and they informed with a lot of information about Auburn's tradition."

Robinson said it was his first trip to Auburn, but he is very familiar with the Tigers' offense. "I like how they run the ball and how they distribute the ball to a lot of different players," he said.

"I like their facilities," he said. "Auburn has a tremendous coaching staff. Coach (Curtis) Luper is recruiting me for Auburn. He is pretty cool. He is straight to the point and down to earth. He will tell you the truth and he wants what is best for his players."

Commenting on what makes him one of the top prospects in Tennessee, Robinson said, "I am hard to tackle. I am hard to touch. It's hard to tackle someone you can't touch."

The big back said he is in no hurry to make a college choice and he doesn't have a favorite yet. "I want to get to all of the other schools that I have offers from and make my evaluations after that," he said.

Commenting on the Big Cat Weekend, he said, "It was very different--less football and more communicating. That was the message that they were trying to get across that their coaching staff cares about players. They care about how players live their lives after football."
