Robinson Hears From ECU

2016 defensive back Aaron Robinson is continuing to draw attention from a lot of schools, including ECU.

2016 Deerfield Beach (Fla.) defensive back Aaron Robinson received an offer from East Carolina, but according to him, the Pirates are not at the top of his list right now.

“I don’t know too much about East Carolina. I have seen them play in the bowl game against Florida. I’m going to have to do more research, so there’s not much interest right now,” Robinson said.

ECU will have to make a strong push if they want to land Robinson. As of now, the rising senior has 15 offers. Schools that are drawing a lot of attention from Robinson include Bowling Green, Florida, Wisconsin, Kentucky, and North Carolina.

With the recruiting process beginning to speed up for Robinson, he will continue to receive offers from more Power Five schools. As of now, Robinson is enjoying the process and is grateful for the chance to play at the next level.

“The recruiting process has been crazy lately,” he admitted. “It’s exciting, it’s a football players dream come true being able to play on TV and to keep playing ball after high school, going to a big university it’s all a blessing.”

The 6-foot-1, 175-pound defensive back feels like his skillset will allow him to excel at the next level.

“I like playing physical and hitting, my feet are very active, and I like to play in all different coverages,” he said.

Playing football at the next level has been Robinson’s dream however there are other factors that he is considering while trying to figure out what school to choose.

“A good education system with a program that interests me,” Robison said. “Somewhere I feel like I would be able to fit in good.”

Although the majority of the offers Robinson is receiving are from all around the eastern part of the country, the Deerfield Beach, Fla. native doesn’t think that location of school will play a major role in deciding where he plays.

“It’s not really about location, just where the best chance is and where I think I would fit best.” While there is a lot to look forward to for Robinson, he would like to continue to master his craft and have a successful senior season.
