Clemson or Florida for Robinson?

SAN ANTONIO, Texas — About this time next week, Demarcus Robinson plans on navigating his way across a college campus.

For much of the last six months, it seemed obvious that home would be Clemson.

However, when asked Monday following the East team practice in preparation for the U.S. Army All-American Bowl if he was committed, Robinson said: "No, no, no."

The other school continuing to tug at the country's No. 113-ranked player is Florida.

"It's about 50-50 between Florida and Clemson," he told FOX Sports NEXT. "I don't really know. I'll probably choose during the game."

Kickoff at the Alamo Dome is on Saturday at 1 p.m. EST. Robinson did say he was not 100-percent sure he'd announce during the telecast.

"I'm really looking forward to it," he said of the game. "It's going to be a great experience for me just to see all the people, just to see what it is."

In the meantime, he's enjoying being a teenager and working to improve his game versus some of the country's best cornerbacks.

"They're pretty good corners," Robinson said. "They're the best out here. They're right here with me, and I'm out here. Just working against those guys is helping me get better and get them better."

Like many all-star game players, Robinson is trying to knock off some rust. He hasn't played since Nov. 30 when his Peach County (Ga.) High School team fell 52-10 to North Hall in a GHSA Class AAA state quarterfinal. In his prep finale, he totaled six catches for 147 yards.

Although he hasn't decided if he wants to be a Gator or a Tiger, the No. 15 wide receiver in the land is ready to be done with the pressures of recruiting.

"I've been feeling it. I knew this day was coming," said Robinson, who admitted that his East teammates haven't been hassling him about which school to pick.

"I'm ready for it to be over with. I'm just ready to go on and get in school so it will be done already."

He has officially visited Clemson, Florida and Notre Dame.

What sticks out about the Tigers is the offense run by million-dollar coordinator Chad Morris.

"Really, their stats and their coaches and their offense. They're the No. 3 offense in the nation," Robinson said.

Head coach Dabo Swinney's experience as an assistant is helping the Tigers' cause as well.

"(Swinney) was a wide receivers coach before he was a head coach," Robinson said. "So, he's a wide receivers type guy. That's another reason it has me leaning on Clemson too."

To offset things in Florida's favor, head coach Will Muschamp has made it a point to communicate more often with his wideout target himself. Robinson said when he talks with the Gators, it's Muschamp on the other end "most of the time" and he is "really easy to talk to."

Playing in the country's premier league, the Southeastern Conference, is a challenge the Peach State product finds intriguing.

"The SEC. The talent is everywhere. Just playing the No. 1 people, SEC, you know. Just playing the best."

No matter the school of choice, the four-star prospect is quite comfortable putting Fort Valley, Ga., in his rear view mirror.

"Oh man, very excited to go ahead and start my college experience and get in the playbook early and learn everything…getting bigger."
