Dead Even Across the Board

With only 3 weeks left to go in the 2008 recruiting season the demand for decision making has gone up. Marcus Robinson (6'1.5, 210, 4.47) out of Homestead Senior High School understands the time is now.

"I just got back from my Florida St. visit," stated Robinson. "It went ok. I shot pool and went bowling with some of the guys that I had met at the Army All-American game. I had a nice time, but I wouldn't rate the visit higher than any of my other visits. I think I could have had just as good of time if I had gone out in California or in Baton Rouge."

"As the days to signing day dwindle down, it appears Robinson's phone has not been ringing as much. The 4-star prospect has an idea why that might be.

"Lately I've just been hearing from USC, Miami and Florida St," said Robinson. "I was supposed to make a visit to Florida this weekend, but they haven't given me any information about the trip yet so it doesn't look like I am going any more. I haven't heard from LSU in a while either.

"Whenever I do speak to the coaches they all ask me if they would be able to find out where I am going before signing day and I tell them they will have to wait to signing day," Robinson continued. "It doesn't really bother me that I haven't heard from Florida or LSU as much because I know enough about their programs already and so one or two more phone calls really are not going to change anything with me."

Now that the trips are out of the way, what is it that will ultimately help Robinson decide where he will be attending college?

"Right now across the board it is dead even between Miami, LSU, Florida St, USC and Florida," Robinson answered. "I know decision time is approaching really fast, but I have to make the best decision for me. All I can tell you on that is wherever my heart tells me to go on signing day is where I am going to go."
