Kentucky is still in need of a corner for the 2009 class to ease the burden of possibly replacing junior Trevard Lindley, should he opt for the NFL. One defensive back on the board for the Wildcats is Gene Robinson.

Kentucky is still in need of a corner for the 2009 class to ease the burden of possibly replacing junior Trevard Lindley, should he opt for the NFL. One defensive back on the board for the Wildcats is Gene Robinson.

Robinson, a Tennessee native, recently received an offer from Kentucky. Aside from Kentucky, he's being heavily recruited by several other programs, including some SEC schools. "I'm hearing from Kentucky, Alabama, North Carolina, Colorado, Vanderbilt, Ole Miss, and Southern Miss," said Robinson.

Robinson doesn't have any favorites, but he has taken a few unofficial visits to this point. "I've been to Alabama, Vanderbilt, Ole Miss and Notre Dame," said Robinson.

Gene has no timetable for his decision, but he does have an idea about who he wants to give his official visits to. Still, he remains quiet on the subject. "I kind of have an idea, but I'm not ready to say that yet," he said.

He does know what he's looking for in the school he chooses. "I'm just looking for a chance to make it to the next level. And the academics are important," he said.

Robinson gathered five interceptions and over 70 tackles last season for Whitehaven High School in Memphis (Tn.). He also blocked a couple of punts. His numbers are impressive, but what is also is Robinson's work ethic. "I'm a student of the game. I watch a lot of film during the week, so I know my opponent before we actually play them. I'm trying to work on my size and speed so I can be better prepared for the next level," said Robinson.

Robinson is a three-star prospect according to Scout.com and the number 36 safety in the nation.
