Trevor Robinson Hitting Junior Days

6-5, 300-pound Trevor Robinson stopped by Kansas and Iowa for junior days this weekend. Read more about his visits, his offer list, and more in this premium recruiting update.

Trevor Robinson is one of the premiere linemen in the state of Nebraska in the 2008 class, and he has just begun taking his junior day visits, starting with Kansas and Iowa this past weekend.

"I was impressed with both of them," Robinson said. "It was a good chance to talk with the head coaches, since it's hard for them to contact me with the way rules are. I was impressed with the campuses and the things I didn't get to see at camps."

Trevor had visited each of these schools for camps and other things before, but found out something surprising about the living arrangements at Kansas.

"I didn't realize the dorms at Kansas were separate," Robinson said. "They have the juniors, seniors, and scholarship athletes in a separate building with two-bedroom apartment type rooms."

Robinson, who currently stands 6-5 and weighs 300 pounds, has spent much of the past several years in the weight room, and starting in 9th grade, he began entering weightlifting competitions.

"Freshman year I got 3rd, sophomore year I got 2nd, and the kid who beat me was a senior, so I should be able to win this year," Robinson said.

Robinson reports a 360-pound bench press, a 480-pound squat, a dead lift near 420 pounds, and a hang clean around 350 pounds. He doesn't rely solely on his strength, however. Coaches are seeing more than physical power in the way he plays football.

"I think it's being aggressive," he said. "At this level, I'm going to be stronger than most people. You can be big and strong, but if you're not aggressive, it's not going to matter."

Robinson reports offers from Boston College, Iowa, Kansas, Nebraska, Notre Dame, and Texas A&M. He also is hearing a good deal from Michigan.

"I talked to Michigan, Coach Moeller, the OL coach, he'll be in town sometime this week along with Coach Morgan from Iowa," Robinson said. "I'd like to hear from Michigan, Ohio State, maybe even Wisconsin. For the most part, I have the ones that I'd be looking for other than those three, maybe a couple more, I don't know."

An early decision isn't likely to come from Trevor, as he hopes to take all of his official visits this fall before making a decision on his college future.
