Robinson's recruitment is starting to take off. "I'm hearing from schools like Georgia Tech, Vanderbilt, North Carolina State, and Mississippi State to name a few."

Georgia Tech and Mississippi State are the two schools that Robinson feels are recruiting him the hardest. G.G. is getting a lot of mail from Mississippi State. "At Georgia Tech, I get more of a family feel as Coach (Mike) Pelton and my dad are close friends through their ties at Auburn."

Georgia Tech coaches Paul Johnson and Ted Roof have also talked a lot to Robinson. "They even say that they have discussions as to which side of the ball I will play." Coach Roof sees G.G. as a defensive end and Coach Johnson sees G.G. as a valuable offensive player.

"I like playing tight end but when it gets time to play college ball, I'll play wherever they want me to play." Robinson is currently 6'4"-245 and feels that he could play on either side of the ball.

Education will be a factor in the decision making process for Robinson. "My dad tells me it is very hard to make the NFL and that a college education is extremely important." Robinson is also looking for a school where he feels comfortable with the coaching staff. Distance will not be a factor.

Robinson has a few visits planned before the end of the season. "I will be at the Georgia Tech game this weekend and again on November 2nd. On November 16th I will be going to Mississippi State for their game." Robinson also hopes to make a lot of of unofficial visits and camps this summer. "My mom works for an airline and we can fly free so that really helps us as far as travel is concerned."
