CB Darius Robinson Profile
CUTigers recently caught up with Robinson to see how his 2009 campaign has gone so far.
"On the season right now, I have 21 tackles, three pass break ups, a forced fumble, punt return for touchdown and a fumble return for a touchdown," he said. "They've really been keeping the ball away from me."
Robinson, a three star, No. 50 cornerback prospect by Scout.com, believes Clemson should be undefeated heading into Saturday's Wake Forest game.
"All the games they lost were close games. They definitely should have beaten TCU. That should have been an upset," he said.
Robinson said everyone knew what kind of defense was going to take to the field this year.
"They kind of expected them to play that well…I just feel the defense is ahead of the offense, that's all," he said.
Despite the Tiger's 2-3 start, the record won't make a difference in Robinson's commitment to the orange and purple. There's no reason to expect that he'll be anywhere other than Tigertown next fall.
"I just look at as a chance to play football for a big time program. I'm really not too worried about the record now because I know there's always room for improvement," Robinson said.
With a young Kyle Parker taking snaps under center, Robinson said he expects the Tiger offense to improve from week to week and into next year as Parker continues to gain experience.
Since Robinson committed to Clemson in late July, he's been garnering interest from Tennessee, Kentucky and Michigan.
"I've been getting letters in the mail from Tennessee," he said. "They've been recruiting me very hard."
Robinson said he's seen all he's need to see from other schools. He won't be taking visits to anywhere but Clemson.
