Tampa (Fla.) Chamberlain High School running back Kylan Robinson wrapped up his official visit schedule with a trip to Miami (Fla.) this past weekend.

Robinson (6-1, 215, 4.5) was hosted by Miami's Jon Beason.

"It went well," Robinson said. "I really liked it down there. I enjoyed it a lot. I just liked everything about the visit. They told me their offense is going to be big. Their defense will always be there, but they definitely want to improve their offense.

"They say they think I would have a chance to come in and play if I work real hard."

Previously, Robinson made visits to UAB, Ohio State and South Carolina. He plans to announce his choice on Wednesday during the "Countdown To Signing Day" show, hosted by's Jamie Newberg and seen across the South on various Fox Sports Net outlets.

"I think that is pretty exciting," Robinson said. "I have a basketball game Wednesday night, so we'll probably go to the studio earlier in the day and tape it."

When asked who he was considering, Robinson said, "It's all three – Miami, Ohio State and South Carolina. I have not made a choice yet."

Robinson said OSU coaches had been in contact with him last week. He is not expecting any coaches to visit before he announces his choice.

Robinson's story is unique. He has spent the last three years of his life in Anchorage, Alaska. There, Robinson played wide receiver for East Anchorage High School. He moved to Florida in an effort to get recognized by college recruiters.

But it actually took Robinson several games to crack the lineup at running back with Chamberlain.

He ended the year on a high note. He finished with 1,606 yards and 11 touchdowns on 179 carries. He helped his team post an 8-4 mark. That season led to install Robinson as the nation's No. 20 running back prospect.

Ohio State already has a commitment from Ohio tailback Chris Wells. But the Buckeyes are working hard to rebuild their depth at that position. They will only have three returnees there in 2006 (junior-to-be Antonio Pittman and sophomores-to-be Erik Haw and Maurice Wells).

Robinson holds a 3.1 GPA and was awaiting his SAT score.
