An Atlanta-Journal Constitution blog quoted 2010 Clemson commit Darius Robinson saying that he'd "open things up" if he was offered by Georgia Tech.

Published on Dec. 10 at 5:13 p.m., the newspaper's online recruiting blog read: "It's really interesting because Georgia Tech is one of my favorite schools and has been a long time," said Robinson, who committed to the Tigers on July 30. "I have a lot of friends there and my family has always liked Tech and would probably like the idea of me staying close to home for college. I'm committed to Clemson but I'd probably have to open things up if Tech offered."

CUTigers talked to the Atlanta-Westlake HS cornerback on Friday.

"When I read it, it kind of made me upset that they twisted my words I didn't even say. I didn't even say I'd commit to Georgia Tech if they offered me," he said. "When they write an article, they'll twist your words up in a heartbeat. That's not the case. I'm still committed to Clemson."

Robinson admitted that Georgia Tech wouldn't get the cold shoulder if an offer is extended his way.

"I said that Georgia Tech was one of my early favorites. If they offered, I wouldn't throw them to the side," he said. "I would check them out and probably go down to one of the bowl practices to see what they do."

Robinson's commitment was in question earlier this month with Auburn making a push for the three star, No. 53 rated cornerback prospect.

He refuted the Auburn rumors and insisted on Friday that he didn't say he would de-commit from Clemson if Georgia Tech offers. Top Stories
