UK Moving Up For Robey?

2008 Kentucky Wildcat Recruiting Update from Rob Gidel from Kentucky Sports Report.

Sam Robey Profile

Although junior linebacker Jordan Whiting committed to Ohio State, yesterday, fellow teammate Sam Robey appears unfazed to the idea of making a decision.

"Basically, I'm just focusing on my senior season right now," Robey admitted. "I'll be going to a couple of games here soon. I'm going to attend the Louisville game this Thursday. I'll be going to the Louisville-Kentucky game for sure. I'm sure I'll see what other games I can go out to throughout the season when I have time."

Robey is the anchor of Trinity High School's offensive line, arguably the state's top football program. At 6-foot-5, 230 pounds, he is one of the state's best players and a candidate to be selected to the all-state team for a third consecutive season.

With offers in hand from in-state Louisville and Kentucky, Robey is one of a few recruits the Cats and Cards will battle for down the stretch.

"It's pretty much Kentucky and Louisville, right now," Robey indicated. "Everyone else is just waiting to see me play. I'm more worried about the team, right now. I'm excited for this game coming up against Butler. We had our first game last week."

The talented offensive lineman talked about what he liked about the in-state schools.

Kentucky: "I love the fan support. Having had my Dad (graduating from there), I'm sure I'll have plenty of support there. It has great tradition and always has a great solid crowd."

Louisville: "They have great athletics, top to bottom. Football has really started clicking the last few years. They have great players there with great coaches, just like Kentucky. It's just a rising program, that's really starting to hit their peak."

Robey is also considering Purdue and Vanderbilt, intending on tripping to Nashville in the near future. "I really don't know much about Vanderbilt, but their coaches stay in contact with me. I'd like to head down and see for myself."
