Talented 2013 WR Enjoys Auburn Junior Day

Pinson Valley's Earnest Robinson talks about Auburn's Junior Day and where he stands early in the recruiting process.

Pinson, Ala.--One of the top wide receiver prospects in the South for the 2013 class, 6-3, 190 Earnest Robinson from Pinson Valley High, is a player to watch next season. Over the weekend he was one of a group of talented juniors on hand at Auburn to meet with AU's coaches and check out the campus. He said for him the visit was a good one.

"It was pretty good," Robinson said. "It was exciting. I met with the coaches and Coach (Gene) Chizik. Overall, the best part was the campus and seeing everything when I went on a tour.

"I just like the campus and how they told me I can be part of the family," he added.

Up to 34 scholarship offers at the moment, Robinson is expected to be one of the top wide receiver prospects in the South for 2013. Because he's already getting so much early attention he could easily make his decision now, but he said he's going to wait a little bit before he makes his choice.

"It's pretty exciting, but I want to stay in control," Robinson said. "I don't want too early. I'm going to wait, probably until later in the fall."

With offers from all over, he said at the moment his focus is on learning as much as he can about each school before narrowing down his list to a top two. Currently he said Alabama, Auburn, Florida State, LSU and Miami are the colleges he's looking at the most and even though he's in-state he hasn't picked a favorite between the Tigers and Crimson Tide.

"I really don't know yet," Robinson said of who he favors. I'm just looking at how the coaches are and how the offensive coordinator will be."

After attending Auburn's Junior Day last weekend, Robinson said his next trip is expected to come in February as he travels to Tuscaloosa for a Junior Day at Alabama.
