Elite 2013 WR Talks Auburn Camp

Pinson Valley junior WR Earnest Robinsont talks about camping at Auburn and gives his thoughts on the Tigers.

Pinson, Ala.--Expected to be one of the top wide receiver prospects in Alabama for the 2013 class, big Earnest Robinson from Pinson Valley was on hand for Sunday's Auburn Camp and he didn't disappoint. Showing good route running skills and strong hands, Robinson caught everything in sight and said he had a very good time while in Auburn.

"It went good," Robinson tells Inside The Auburn Tigers. "I liked the camp. There was more competition there than any of the camps I had been to. My mindset coming into the camp was to catch every ball and just impress the coaches.

"I really like the campus," he added. "I also really like the coaches and how they treat us. They're trying to make us better."

It's safe to say he did just that as he checked in at 6-1, 192 pounds and caught everything in sight. A physical receiver, Robinson showed he's capable of catching the ball in traffic as he pulled down the football in some tight situations. He said it was a fun day for him getting to work with the receivers under Coach Trooper Taylor.

"It was pretty fun," Robinson said. "I like that they were telling us to compete. Coach Trooper was talking about different routes and stuff like that. It was really cool. I liked it."

In addition to working with Taylor, Robinson said he also had the chance to talk to Coach Gene Chizik. Already with an offer from the Tigers, he said it was nice to get a feel for what Auburn thinks of him.

"They told me they think I'm a great athlete," Robinson said. "They said they had watched my highlight tape and they loved it. They also said they loved my character."

Already receiving attention from coast to coast, Robinson has a chance to be one of the top wide receivers in the South next season if he continues to develop his game. When asked if his early offers meant he could relax some now the standout said it's exactly the opposite.

"I have offers from Mississippi State, Florida State, Auburn, Oregon and Alabama," Robinson said. "It's pretty great and really exciting.

"It makes me want to work real hard, much harder," he added. "I'm not great yet. I'm just working on getting better."

With plenty of options and likely more coming down the pipe in the next 18 months Robinson is in a pretty good situation as far as recruiting goes. Already offered by Auburn and Alabama, two in-state schools that have won the last two national titles, Robinson said it may just come down to a battle between the Tigers and Crimson Tide.

"My mom wants me to stay close to home," Robinson said. "That might make it come down to Auburn and Alabama. It's still too early to know."
