Auburn WR Commitment Excited About Weekend

Auburn wide receiver commitment Earnest Robinson talks recruiting, his improvement as a player, and more.

Pinson, Ala.—An early Auburn commitment and one of the top wide receiver prospects in the country, big 6-3, 205 Earnest Robinson from Pinson Valley High said he's excited about his upcoming weekend as he'll be on the Plains for Big Cat Weekend along with several top prospects from all over.

"I'm pumped up," Robinson told Inside The Auburn Tigers. "I just want to be with the family that is the football team and hang out with the coaches. That's about it."

Saying that he's anxious to start building a bond with his future teammates that are already committed, Robinson said in particular he's ready to get to know quarterback Jeremy Johnson even better.

"That was good," Robinson said. "We need that quarterback so getting him was good."

A commitment to Auburn since late in February, Robinson said it hasn't slowed down the interest from teams all over the country in the least. Picking the Tigers over Alabama, Arkansas, Tennessee and several others, he said schools from coast to coast are still hot after him to take official visits before signing day. Among those are Oregon, LSU, Florida State, Georgia, Miami, Tennessee and Texas.

"It has still been pretty busy," Robinson said. "Other schools still want to look at me and are trying to get me to take official visits after watching me in practice. I still make take some visits, but I'm still going to Auburn.

"I feel real good about my decision," he added. "I'm planning on starting my freshman year and dominating my freshman year."

With his latest 40-yard dash time of 4.48 seconds, Robinson presents the ultimate package for a wide receiver when you add in his size and physical nature. Even with all the physical traits, he said for him the biggest thing about his game is the improvements he made in all areas of his trade as a wide receiver.

"Spring went real good," Robinson said. "We won our game over Handley. I think I have progressed with my speed, my ability to catch the ball, and my route running. I think I got stronger too catching the football."
