At only 6-foot-2.5, 225-pounds some would be surprised at how dominant Harrisburg High School product Adrian Robinson can be from his defensive end position, until you watch his film that is. Robinson has taken some of the basics of his second sport, wrestling, and done a great job incorporating them into his game. Between those talents and his athleticism, that makes him versatile enough to play with his hand on the ground or standing up at strong side linebacker.
Right now, Robinson is hearing from dozens of programs across the nation, has been invited to many junior days and has his fair share of spring practices to consider attending. Until this point he was unable to attend because of wrestling season, but after finishing up a 33-3 season with a loss in the playoffs he'll have a chance to focus on recruiting.
"I'm hearing from a bunch of schools right now, but my top seven for now would be Maryland, Michigan, Pittsburgh, Rutgers, Tennessee, Connecticut and Mississippi," Robinson explained. "My coach hasn't sent film out to all of my schools yet, in fact, he's only sent it out to Michigan and Pittsburgh, so that's next to be taken care of."
"Pittsburgh, Michigan, Rutgers and Connecticut have been to the school and I was invited for junior days by Penn State and Pittsburgh, but couldn't attend because of wrestling," Robinson said. "I have to take my SATs as I've been working very hard in the classroom and then I'll worry about getting to spring games. Michigan asked me to come up there for one, so I'm going to look into working out transportation to get to Ann Arbor."
As a junior, Robinson registered 14 sacks, five forced fumbles and three fumble recoveries on his way to earning first team Class AAAA Associated Press All-State honors. He is also an excellent wrestler, posting a 22-10 record in his first year as a sophomore and a 33-3 clip as a senior. He will be participating in the Scout.com Combine in Pittsburgh this May.
