Robinson: "I need to ball out at Duke"

Summer camps offer a chance for prospects to run up their stock and earn offers. That's the plan for this evolving offensive lineman who is coming to Durham looking to earn a scholarship.

Standing 6-foot-2 and weighing in at 320 pounds, Lovejoy (Ga.) standout offensive center Randy Robinson has made the most of his Spring so far. He impressed the Scout.com team at the NFTC event in March.

"Everywhere Robinson goes, he seems to shine," wrote National Scouting Director Scott Kennedy. "He is a true center, a three year starter at Lovejoy, and he plays well in and out of pads. He has great balance after setting a good base, and defenders had a hard time moving him Sunday."

Using his size and strength along the interior of the line is something Robinson takes pride in, but he knows that's not enough.

"I feel that my strength and footwork are my best attributes, but I know I need to work on my speed overall and my hand speed as well. That's what I'm hoping to show at the camps."

The camps he'll attend include Duke, Central Florida, South Florida, and Florida State. He'll be at Duke this weekend, and it could mean big news for the Georigia prospect.

"The coaches have told me that they liked me a lot and they've been recruiting me since my sophomore year. They came in for a visit that year but I was competing in the state track meet. I am hoping to chop it up with Coach Jones this weekend because it seems like they are close to offering if I ball out at camp."

If an offer came, Duke would be the first high major program to jump in though several are interested including Georgia, Indiana, Auburn, Florida, Florida International, Central Florida, Florida, and Georgia Tech. He currently has offers from several smaller programs including Old Dominion, Richmond, and James Madison.

Robinson says he has been projected as both a center and a defensive tackle.

"Honestly I don't have a preference on position, but I think I have had the most recognition and success as an offensive lineman."
