Robinson Pulls Trigger for Hoosiers

On Thursday, Jacob Robinson was not ready to pull the trigger between Wisconsin and instate program Indiana. That changed on Friday afternoon when Robinson gave his pledge to the Hoosiers.

Thursday afternoon Scout.com visited Westfield (IN) High School defensive lineman Jacob Robinson who explained he had narrowed things down to Wisconsin and Indiana.

While Robinson told us he was looking to visit the Badgers before making a decision, things quickly changed as they often do in recruiting.

"I've narrowed it down to IU and Wisconsin," said Robinson. "I've had schools like Cincinnati, Boston College and Missouri as well stop in school. I'm looking to visit Wisconsin on May 20-th and finalizing those plans right now."

Those plans were not enough to keep Robinson from making the decision to stay in his home state and play for the Hoosiers.

"I really like what the coaching staff is doing and like what Coach Wilson has done by bringing in Coach McDaniel and Coach Knorr."

"I am extremely excited to say that I have committed to play football for the Indiana Hoosiers!" declared Robinson on Twitter.

During our visit, Robinson laid out why the Hoosiers and head coach Kevin Wilson had gained a great advantage as the more he thought about things he knew he didn't want to be too far from home.

"It's kind of big for me (staying close to home) and I like how close it is," he said. "I have a lot of family here in Indiana and in Westfield so they would be able to get to my games and see me in a short period of time. I really like what the coaching staff is doing and like what Coach Wilson has done by bringing in Coach (Larry) McDaniel and Coach (Brian) Knorr. They are both great guys and know what they are talking about.

On my last visit they kind of scrimmaged and they looked really well and had a lot of takeaways. I think that aspect of their game is really picking up and where I fall in to. So I really like what they are doing.
