All you need to know about Northwestern's Jamie Robinson is this: last season, the 6-foot-2, 175-pound defensive back took over for C.J Barber midway through the year.

Needless to say, when you have an underclassmen taking over for a senior who later signed with a Division I-A school, there's little doubt that underclassman is high on many recruiting wishlists.

Without question, one of the top rated defensive backs in South Carolina in 2004 is Jamie Robinson.

"I know Michigan and Virginia have written," Robinson said in a recent interview with CUTigers.com. "I haven't seen any from the in-state schools, but I know Coach Wallace is holding a bunch of my letters. Virginia sent me something about one of their junior days but I probably won't be able to make it up for that one."

Obiviously, the question on everyone's mind concerns the in-state schools. Does the Rock Hill standout have an early favorite? "I really don't have one. It will probably depend on my visits. I really grew up rooting for Florida State, but I'm all even with everybody right now."

Robinson does not plan to make an early decision during the recruiting process. "I would like to take all my visits. I probably won't commit early."

Robinson was well aware of the strong finish that the Tigers had at the end of the 2003 campaign as he was in attendance for the victory over Florida State. "I went to the Clemson game when they played Florida State. It was something else."

When asked if his former teammate C.J Barber will have any impact on his decision, Robinson responded, "That will have a little bit of impact. It will depend on what he says after this season too."
