IE Quick Take: Corey Robinson

Corey Robinson will give Notre Dame quarterbacks a big target to throw at in the coming years. IrishEyes.com's Dave Berk offers his first take on the San Antonio (TX) Christian wide receiver.

Brian Kelly found a player he'll love getting the football to in the coming years with the commitment of wide receiver Corey Robinson.

WHAT TO LIKE

The need for a top level perimeter receiver in the 2013 class was a must for Kelly, and Robinson shows the skill set to get the job done. At 6-foot-4, 195-pounds, Robinson has a frame to build upon to make him one of the more physical receivers in college football.

WHAT MAY CONCERN YOU

Robinson needs to continue work on his speed and route running. However, the biggest question could rest upon his physical size and if he's done growing. Robinson's father, former NBA great David Robinson, had a late growth spurt from his senior year in high school going from 6-foot-7 to 7-foot by the time he left the Naval Academy and headed to the NBA. If Corey would have the same physical change he'd become the tallest receiver in college football at 6-foot-9.

BOTTOM LINE

On the field Robinson shows a lot of physical skills while still being raw in his overall development. There is no mistaking the role Kelly will look Robinson to fill in the Irish offense as he's going to grow into a physical receiver capable of blocking on the edge and going up to catch the ball at its highest point.

There are no questions regarding Robinson off the field. He's the type of kid who will fit in at Notre Dame without much of a transition.
