Huge Addition For The Buffs

CU's recruiting class got a huge addition as they landed the top wide receiver in the state of Colorado. Mullen's Stephone Robinson commited to CU and said no to San Diego State late Tuesday.

The Buffs recruiting class got a huge late addition Tuesday as WR Stephone Robinson commited to the University of Colorado. San Deigo State and CU were the last two teams on Robinson's list.

The 5-10", 180 pound Robinson runs a 4.4 40 and helped Mullen High School get to the state semi-finals before losing to eventual state champion Columbine.

As a senior, Robinson caught 35 balls for 832 yards and received All-Conference and All-State honors. As a junior, he caught 73 passes for 1,239 yards and 10 TDs. Although his numbers were down as a senior, he was still one of the toughest receivers to stop. Many believe Mullen's coaching staff and offensive game plans did not take advantage of Robinson's abilities.

The Buffs coaching staff did a great job getting Robinson to Boulder.

"I like the direction of the program and the new wide receiver coach coming in," Robinson said. "My only reservation was always the offense and how much they would throw the ball. They're going to throw the ball more now and I'm excited to be going there." Now the Buffs just need to figure out who will throw the ball to him. One thing is for sure though, the potential combination of DJ Hacket, Derek McCoy and Stephone Robinson could make secondaries in the Big 12 conference worry.

Can you say West Coast Offense? Maybe not.
