Robinson Twins Will Take Trips

The San Diego (Calif.) Lincoln prospects and Oregon commits, Tyrell Robinson and Tyree Robinson, will take three visits...

In September, 2013 San Diego Lincoln twins Tyree Robinson and Tyrell Robinson committed to Oregon but with this week's decision by Chip Kelly to leave Eugene for the Philadelphia Eagles, the brothers are starting to look at other college options.

According to David Dunn, who is the twins' head football coach at Lincoln and also a godfather and mentor to the four-star prospects, there are three other schools that are now involved.

"They're pretty open right now," Dunn said of Tyell, who plays linebacker and Tyree, who plays wide receiver. "They're going to open the door for some official visits. They haven't officially decommitted. They just want to open it up to check out some other options.

"They're going to get to USC this evening for an official visit. Then they'll possibly go to Ohio State and Washington."

For USC, location is one of several factors that stands out about the Trojans.

"The program itself has always been excellent, especially for linebackers but for all positions; they've been putting out some really good players," Dunn said. "It's closer to home and they have limited scholarships, but for them to open up two for those guys is saying a lot."

Ohio State is coming off a 12-0 season and has the Robinson twins' attention.

"That's always been a school they've had some interest in so they figured they would go over there and see what they're about," said Dunn.

Washington has long been involved with the brothers and that familiarity should help Steve Sarkisian get them on campus for an official visit.

"They've been showing interest in the boys for three years," said Dunn. "They're making a big push for a lot of West Coast guys and have some really good players coming in. They've consistently shown interest for a long time now so the (Robinsons) want to take that visit to see what they have to offer."

After the Robinson twins go on some more visits and the situation at Oregon is officially settled they'll be able to sit down and make a final decision.

"It's going to be a signing day decision," Dunn said.
