Robinson has been committed to Rutgers for several weeks, but offensive line coach Ron West and the Clemson Tigers are working hard to get the Carol City prospect to change his commitment.
"Right now it's not as strong as it was. There are a lot of things going on right now," said Robinson. "I am finding out some new facts about both schools. The offensive line coach at Rutgers left. That makes it harder."
With the Tigers already set on the offensive line for the 2004 class, they are looking for Robinson to play either tight end or defensive line. "Right now they are telling me that the offensive line has been filled up. They say that since I'm athletic enough they are looking at me as tight end or defensive line."
Robinson expects to make his final decision next week after taking his official visit to Rutgers this weekend. "After the visit to Rutgers visit this weekend I will be ready to make my decision. After the visit I will talk to my parents. They keep telling me to take my visits. I will probably have my decision by next Wednesday," added Robinson.
The Sunshine star has two former teammates that play for Rutgers. "They will not be my host but I will spend a good bit of time with them. They will tell me what things are really like up there."
The Tigers will get a chance to influence the decision when Coach Bowden makes his in-home visit next week. "Coach Bowden will be here on Tuesday. Coach West has already been here a few times. He has also come to see a couple of basketball games."
Robinson had planned to visit Florida but he believes that visit will be cancelled once he makes his decision next week. "If I make my decision next week I expect Florida to pull out of the visit."
