Redshirt Senior

*****

2014 Review:

During his fourth year on the roster, Robinson appeared in all 13 games for Duke with one start against Tulane.  He played a total of 376 snaps for the Blue Devils and factored into a rotation that allowed the fewest tackles per loss per game in the league.  

*****

2015 Preview

As one of the elder statesmen along the line, Robinson entered 2015 projected as the starter at right guard.  However, as camp has progressed, Robinson has been bumped back down to the second string behind new starter Tanner Stone.   

*****

TDD Projection

Robinson will provide depth along the line and a great option if either of the starting guards suffers injury.  We’d expect him to log around 350 snaps during his final season in Durham, while helping the Blue Devils establish control of the line of scrimmage.

How he ended up in Durham

Robinson turned down offers from schools such as Kentucky, Memphis, Syracuse, Middle Tennessee, Vanderbilt, Western Kentucky, Tulane, and several others. Some remain in contact after Robinson's senior season which saw him earn all-Region honors, Regional Defensive MVP, Team MVP, Offensive Line, and All-Academic team honors.
