"Honesty" is Determing Factor in Decision

JASON ROBINSON SAW HIS RECRUITING go through the roof during the the past couple of months, but the acclaimed Senior (Co-League MVP, 3A City Player of the Year) from University Senior High, (Los Angeles, CA) said that his decision on where to spend the next 4-5 years came down to one word.. "Honesty"

Boise State landed another commit late Sunday night when University Senior High School safety Jason Robinson verbally committed with the Broncos.

Robinson had been on a recruiting trip this past weekend at the University of Utah, but said that the "honesty" he got from Boise State defensive coach Marcel Yates was the determining factor for where he wanted to play in college.

"I was comfortable with the staff and the program," Robinson said.

The six foot, one inch safety/quarterback in high school is not only tall for a Bronco safety, he is big too, at 188 pounds.

As a senior, Robinson combined for 2,564 yards and 33 total touchdowns as a quarterback. On defense, he had 108 tackles, four interceptions and three sacks. Robinson was named co-league MVP and 3A city player of the year.

He was in Boise from Dec. 16-18 for a recruiting trip with his father, who was his coach in high school.

Robinson also stated that it wasn't just the comfort with the staff as a whole, but with Coach Yates, who decided to stay on at Boise State, than rather go with former Bronco head coach Dan Hawkins to Colorado—where Robinson was also being recruited.

"When I found out he was staying, that was when I knew it was (at Boise State) I needed to be," Robinson said.

As for Colorado, he simply stated, "Colorado was in a lot of shifting."

Robinson will graduate after this semester, and will be able to join Boise State in spring practice. Unknown still what the plans are for the 2006 season for the honor roll student with a 3.33 grade point average.
