Robinson twins commit to Oregon

Tyrell and Tyree Robinson made verbal pledges on Sunday. Shortly after their official visits to Oregon, they announced their choice.

While on official visits to Oregon, Tyrell and Tyree Robinson committed to Oregon. Duel sport athletes, the Robinson twins told Scout.com that they were assured they could play both football and basketball for the Ducks.

"I just felt like it was the perfect fit," Tyree told Scout.com shortly after his commitment. "I like their style of play both offensively and defensively.

"My visit was real good," Tyrell added. "Oregon showed me and my brother a lot of things on the visit. It's on another level."

The twins had interest from a host of programs for both football and basketball. USC, Notre Dame and Washington were among the schools involved.

"Everybody was cool with me playing both sports," Tyree said. "They want us to play football and we'll have a guaranteed spot on the basketball court."

"What stuck out about them was they are down to earth and they understand their player and they care about their players," Tyree added. "They push their players to be the best they can be and their academics are off the wall."

Tyrell cited the family atmosphere as one of the many reasons he opted for Oregon.

"Everybody just plays together as one," he said. "It's a brotherhood. I wanted to be apart of the family and the traidiotn. They care about Oregon football out here."

The twins are highly regarded prospects in both sports. They ran with the Oakland Soldiers, who won Nike EYBL this year, on the AAU circuit.

Tyrell is ranked as the No. 26 outside linebacker and a three-star in both sports. Tyree is regarded as the No. 34 cornerback and a three-star prospect in football. In hoops he's the No. 22 shooting guard and a four-star recruit.
