Robinson Looks Good at Auburn Camp

A report on a class of 2009 defensive end prospect from Georgia is featured.

Hoschton, Ga.—Finding unheralded defensive prospects seems to be second nature for the Auburn coaching staff, and it appears that they have found another one in Mill Creek High School defensive end Ryan Robinson.

The talented 6-3, 245-pounder was extremely impressive at Auburn's one-day football camp showing off his quickness off the ball, long arms and overall athleticism.

Robinson says he clocked a time of 4.92 in the 40-yard dash at the camp to go along with his time of 4.55 in the short shuttle and a 34-inch vertical leap.

The end also notes that he really enjoyed spending some time on the Plains.

"It went pretty good, I mean, I like the facilities," he says. "I liked competing in the offensive line and defensive line drills, the agility drills and learning some new things I can use when I get back to school."

Robinson adds that he feels like he was able to perform well at the camp even though he is still recovering from a serious injury.

"I feel like I did pretty good," he says. "I actually had shoulder surgery, but I found out I could do some things pretty well that I didn't think I could do yet after my surgery because it has only been about six months. It still hurts from time to time, but I think I did pretty good."

The explosive defender says he used his quickness, long arms and strong work ethic to rack up 61 tackles and six sacks as a junior.

Ryan Robinson participated in Auburn's one-day football camp.

Robinson also says that his combination of size and athleticism has landed him scholarship offers from Auburn, South Carolina, Kentucky, Middle Tennessee State and Western Carolina.

However, he notes that the Tigers and Gamecocks are currently at the top of his list.

"Quentin Groves is one of my favorite defensive ends, so I like the way they helped him to be a great defensive end," he says about what stands out about Auburn. "South Carolina, my uncle went there and my dad hangs around there a lot so I know the campus and the atmosphere a lot."

Despite already having a top two, Robinson says he is not planning on making an early commitment.

"I am not trying to rush it," he explains. "I am going to wait because it is going to be the next four years of my life. So, I am going to take it slow and probably commit during January."

Still, the defensive end prospect says he does have a list of things he is looking for in a college. "A place that will give me a good education to take care of my family, a good place that will help get me to the NFL, win bowl games and help me get my degree," Robinson notes.
