Top cornerback at camp

When Robbie Robinson picked up his Clemson offer earlier this spring, he told CUTigers that it was "kind of a dream come true."

The three-star prospect from Phoebus High School in Hampton, Virginia visited Clemson on Wednesday and participated in the Dabo Swinney Football Camp.

"Everything was real fun. When I first got down there, I toured the campus [and] saw the athletic buildings, the academic center and the dorms. I love the setup at the school. Everything is really compact. You don't have to do a lot of walking. Everything is kind of within walking distance," Robinson told CUTigers on Saturday afternoon.

Prior to the camp, Robinson indicated that he was not going to work-out. Those plans changed. Robinson was among the top cornerbacks to participate during either of the two sessions at this year's camp.

"The camp was fun. I love all the coaches. I'm building a great relationship with coach [Mike] Reed, like I already had...I got to meet Mackensie Alexander [Friday], talked to him for a long time, he told me a lot, so everything went well yesterday," Robinson said.

Working with Reed was a treat, too.

"That was real good. He pushes you. He pushes you to be the best. If you don't do it, he was real strict. He didn't want anything but the best," Robinson said.

As a sophomore, Robinson had 80 tackles, four interceptions, one of which was returned for a touchdown. He also had two sacks. On the offensive side of the ball, Robinson caught three passes for 88 yards and rushed twice for 123 yards.

In the return game, Robinson said he had "five or six" punt returns for touchdowns. He also took a pair of kickoffs to the house.
