Scout.com's No. 49 cornerback in the nation, Darius Robinson, visited Clemson Friday with his father, and with the Tigers firmly already entrenched as his leader.

On his drive home to Atlanta, he talked with CUTigers.com about his day and what possibly could be coming up next.

"We had a complete tour of the facilities," he said. "Both the old and the new and it was great. We really liked it a lot.

"We got there around 10 this morning and left a little while ago. There's nothing you can say negative about it. The academic support was great. We were really impressed by that, and by Wayne Coffman. He really helps you out and it was great meeting him."

Darius also spent a good deal of time talking with what could be his future position coach- defensive backs coach Charlie Harbison.

"It was cool. I had a good chance to build a relationship with Coach Harbison. My father did too and then we met Jeff Davis. Then the defensive tackles coach and also coach Napier.


"Clemson is No. 1," Robinson said. "Today only strengthened that for me. I want to set down with my father and talk about all my options. I may want to visit other schools or I may be ready to go ahead and contact the school I want to play for and get this over with."
"That was great to get know all the coaches like that. We really felt like we got to know everything they were about."

And now that his trip is complete, he's definitely got some thinking to do.

One of his options could be a verbal commitment to his current top school - Clemson. Another could be a handful of additional visits, including one to the west coast.

"Clemson is No. 1," Robinson said. "Today only strengthened that for me. I want to set down with my father and talk about all my options. I may want to visit other schools or I may be ready to go ahead and contact the school I want to play for and get this over with.

"If I decide to take any other visits, it will probably be to Stanford and Kentucky. I've wanted to see both schools, but I have some thinking to do right now.

"Right now you can say my top five is Clemson, Miami, Stanford, Central Florida and Kentucky."

Robinson finished his junior season with 43 tackles and three interceptions.

He benches 225, squats 435 and claims a 35" vertical jump. He also plans to major in business or finance and reports a 3.4 core GPA and a 1370 SAT.
