Three Star OG Talks Duke

The offensive line has added three players from the class of 2011 already and there appear to be at least one or two more spots available. One player with a standing offer is Warren Co. (Tenn.) High's Cody Robinson. The three star prospect recently spoke with TDD.

"I've had a really good summer," said Cody Robinson. "At each camp I feel like I've picked something up and made myself a better player. For instance I really enjoyed the Duke camp and felt like a it helped me start the summer strong."

While at Duke, Robinson was able to speak with the coaches and earned a scholarship offer. As the summer wore on he continued to speak with the coaching staff and develop a relationship that remains very strong in the early part of August.

"I talk to the Duke coaching staff twice a week - mainly with my recruiting coach, but I've also been able to talk to Coach Cutcliffe around once a week. I really feel comfortable around them and can see the difference in the program. They are committed to winning and committed to each other."

In addition to the Blue Devils, Robinson is also fielding interest from Arkansas, Duke, Kentucky, Memphis, Middle Tennessee, Syracuse, Tennessee, Tulane, UT-Chattanooga, Vanderbilt, Western Kentucky. All but Tennessee have offered and it's required a lot of summer travel.

"I've been all over and visited most of the schools who have offered me. It's been a lot to do, but I'm not complaining. There are a lot of high school players who would love to be in this situation, so I just count my blessings and look forward to seeing where it all leads me."

Recruited primarily as a center or a guard, Robinson measures out at 6-foot-4 and just over 300 pounds. He expects to decide before the middle of his high school season, and knows what he's looking for.

"It's mainly about the kind of relationship I have with the people in the program. Some programs talk about facilities, but after a month or so you're used to whatever it is. But the people…you are with these people for the next four or five years of your life. So you need to be sure and comfortable with them. Otherwise it's not going to work."

Robinson is rated as a three star prospect and the nation's No.78 offensive guard.
