Read on for that and to see what he's saying about Coach Young, playing early, and much more!

"It was a great visit," said Marcus Robinson. "I like the fact that it is a private school. Most of the classes are small and I really like that."

Robinson had 21 sacks for Homestead High School and played defensive end, linebacker, and even defensive back throughout his senior season. His host on his Miami visit was another former Bronco.

"Kayne Farquharson was my host," said Robinson. "He is a cool dude. He went to Homestead also. We had a good time just hanging out."

The 6-foot-3 225 pound linebacker got a chance to meet a lot of his future teammates and coaches throughout the weekend and described that experience.

"The best part about the visit was just meeting my future teammates and coaches," said Robinson. "I had a good time just talking and hanging out with them. Coach Young was telling me how many good athletes we are bringing in on defense."

Robinson was offered by all 3 major Florida schools along with a bunch of other major programs. He has to the ability to be an impact player at Miami right away.

"I really want to play as a true freshman," said Robinson. "I feel like I can help right away. I just need to come in and work hard."

There is also speculation that Robinson could be a defensive end at Miami , but he feels his high school position suits him the best.

"I want to play linebacker," said Robinson. "All that matters is that we are winning, but I feel I can help best at linebacker."

Robinson also got a chance to meet one on one with his future head coach and was told the opportunity to play early would be available to him.

"Coach Shannon just told me how I would have the chance to come in and compete," said Robinson. "He said nobody has a starting job right now. You are going to have to work for and earn playing time."

Robinson remains a Miami commitment and says it is always where he felt he would go. He gave his thoughts about what his Hurricane career has in store for him.

"I am really excited about coming to Miami ," said Robinson. "They have a great tradition of linebackers. They are going to be a winning team again very soon. I can not wait to start."
