Robinson tearing it up in Myrtle Beach

MYRTLE BEACH - Three future members of the Clemson secondary are teaming up this weekend in the O-D All American Bowl in Myrtle Beach.

One of the 2010 Tiger commits participating in this year's game is Atlanta-Westlake HS cornerback Darius Robinson.

"We're out there having fun, running around, just having a good time," he said.

Clemson commitment Desmond Brown is lining up at one safety with Bashaud Breeland occupying the other for the East team.

"It's a lot of fun to be out here running around with some good competition," Robinson said. "I'm getting to bond more with some of the Clemson commits. We're getting a real tight bond. It's just fun to get to compete against some of the better players from around the country."

While Robinson is certainly enjoying himself, he's also been turning heads, notes Scout.com recruiting analyst Allen Trieu.

"Robinson is not only the fastest player here, but maybe had the best morning in Tuesday's workouts," Trieu said. "His makeup ability is outstanding and he showed good ball skills as well. He showed he was not just a track star and has displayed good ball skills and aggressiveness."

Since Monday, both the East and West teams have been going through two-a-day practices in preparation for Saturday's game. Robinson told CUTigers after Wednesday afternoon's practice that it's been a tough week.

"It's tough having two-a-days. When you have that break in between, your body gets tightened up and stuff," he said. "Plus, it's been cold out here. Practice has been fun as long as we're sticking to it. When we start standing around and get cold, we don't feel like practicing too much."

Robinson said he was sure to get in touch with all of his fellow Clemson commitments playing in the game.

"I made sure that I hit them up and communicated in some way with them to just let them know I was going to be here, just to look out for me so we could get to know each other a little more," he said.

At one point in the week, Robinson had to go over to the West practice field for a helmet adjustment. After getting a sneak preview of his opponent, he admitted they looked to be a little more disciplined on the practice field.

"We're out here having more fun…I feel like we're going to take the game. As long as our offense puts up some points, they aren't going to score too many on us," Robinson said.

The player that's impressed him the most is fellow Clemson commit and East team wide receiverDeAndre Hopkins.

"He came out here and really showed that he's a top receiver. I'm glad to have him on our team," Robinson said.

"We went at it a couple times (during practice). I shut him down, though. That's what I do."

Scout.com rates Robinson as a three-star prospect and the No. 55 cornerback in the class of 2010.
