"I called Ole Miss Saturday to let them know that I was ready to commit," added Christopher Robinson. "They told me to talk it over with my family and if I felt the same in a few days to call back so I did and committed today."
What was Ole Miss' reaction?
The Woodlawn defensive tackle had a prior connection with a coach from Ole Miss and that is how the interest started between the two parties.
"Coach (Trey) Scott was recruiting me when he was at Arkansas State, and we built a real close bond. I found out he was leaving to Ole Miss become an assistant to the defensive line coach so I started doing some research on Ole Miss. I found that they do not have many players that get in trouble or who fail out of school so that sparked my interest. I started talking to some of their staff and just felt like I could trust them so I wanted to go ahead and commit."
Robinson will be heading over to Oxford to catch their spring game next weekend.
"I just want to find out how the players treat each other and how the environment is around the school. I want to learn more about the school than football because you have to take football out of the equation when picking a college. You want to be comfortable with the school and the coaches and players but mainly the school."
Who else was involved?
"MSU and Texas offered me. I was named defensive line MVP at the Army combine and that's when things really picked up. I started hearing from State, Texas, LSU, Alabama, Ole Miss, and some of those schools."
What kind of player is Christopher?
"I think I can stop the middle and put some pressure on the quarterback. I had 11-13 sacks last season but I still need to get stronger and bigger and keep working on my techniques."
Robinson was named All-District and All-Shreveport for his play on the field last season.
