Profile - Malik Robinson
Robinson had previously been to Tech for their spring game last year. “I got a lot done in the time I was there on this visit.” Malik came away feeling good about what he saw at Tech.
When Malik arrived on campus, he met with Coach Ted Roof. He then toured the campus and got to see the football facilities. The visit also allowed Robinson to take a look at the academic side of things. “They give the players a lot of help.”
Tech strength and conditioning Coach John Sisk also met with Malik. “He said he liked my frame and said
that I could grow some and put on more weight and still keep my agility. Malik current is 6’-225. Linebacker Coach Andy McCollum and Coach Roof project Malik as a MIKE linebacker.
Malik feels that he has gotten closer to Coach Roof than any other coach that he has met. “He talked about how much I could help Georgia Tech. He wants me at Tech and he wished I would commit.” Coach Roof feels that Robinson can make an immediate impact at Tech. Robinson took that as a big compliment. Malik has been invited back for the spring game. “I will most likely be there.”
Including his offer from Tech, Malik now has 16 offers. North Carolina and Virginia Tech are two schools that are going hard after Malik. Malik now has Tech in that group. “They have cranked up their recruitment of me.”
Does Robinson have a leader at this time? Georgia Tech is at the top right now along with North Carolina and perhaps Virginia Tech. “I know the first two are schools I really like a lot."
Alabama, Auburn, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Virginia Tech have also received visits from Malik. This Saturday he is making a return visit to North Carolina. “Other than the Georgia Tech visit, those are the only two I have planned at this time.”
A decision before his first game is the plan for Malik. He wants to have zero distractions during his senior year. “Knowing where I’ll be going before the season starts will be a big relief and a big weight off my shoulders.”
Before he makes that decision, Malik will be looking for the school where he feels most comfortable with the coaching staff. Playing time will also be a factor. “The opportunities my education will give me is extremely important.”
