Robinson A Fan of Auburn's Big Cat Weekend

One of the top prospects in the state of Louisiana discusses his visit to check out the Auburn Tigers.

Thibodaux, La.--Offensive tackle is a high priority area for Auburn's 2011 football signee class, a point that was clearly made to Greg Robinson on his visit to Auburn's Big Cat Weekend.

"The coaches told me that they are really looking for players at my position," Robinson says. "I really like the Auburn coaches a lot and I am very interested in Auburn."

Robinson was one of several dozen prospects who visited Auburn on Saturday for Auburn's second Big Cat Weekend. The one the Tigers held last year proved to be very successful with prospects who attended the event making up a substantial portion of the 2010 signing class.

"I liked it because it gave me a chance to get to know the coaches on a personal basis," Robinson says of the 2010 Big Cat Weekend. "I also liked getting to know other recruits who were there. The competitions we had were a lot of fun."

The prospects were divided into teams for competition that included athletic contests and other contests like watermelon eating. "It was a lot of fun," Robinson notes.

Rated the No. 12 offensive tackle prospect in the nation by Scout.com, Robinson says that Auburn and LSU are at the top of his favorites list. Although he didn't give a time frame on when he would be ready to make a college choice, he noted that getting recruiting behind him sooner than later is something he is considering.

He says the idea of reuniting with his former teammate at Thibodaux High School, Trovon Reed, is appealing. "We are real close," the offensive lineman says. "I talked to him and hung out with him on my visit to Auburn. He is a great football player. He is going to do some great things at Auburn, I believe."
