"They are going to run a pro punt formation, so essentially (Ligashesky) said he was looking for an NFL-caliber punter," Robbins said earlier this week. "He said that out of all of the guys that he had met and talked to and had seen, I am their guy."
Robbins also holds an offer from Navy and has received interest from Iowa, Rutgers and Michigan.
