Kentucky wants to add depth and talent to the trenches and one player who fits the mold of the quality players Joker Phillips seeks is Cody Robinson. KSR spoke with Robinson about his recent offer from Kentucky and his recruitment.

Kentucky has been very active in Tennessee during the Rich Brooks era and also going into the Joker Phillips era. That trend seems to be one that will continue with Warren County guard Cody Robinson. Robinson's squad struggled to a 4-6 finish last season, but his play caught the eye of several recruiters. "I had a good year. I wasn't really happy with our record, but personally I had a good year," said Robinson.

"I'm a high motor, fast paced type of guy," said Robinson. "I rely on my strength and speed a lot and my technique," he finished. But Robinson wants to continue to improve on his assets. "I want to get better at a little of everything, you know," said Robinson. "No matter how good you get, you can improve on run blocking and pass blocking. You can work on footwork," he continued.

Whatever work Robinson needs, he's getting interest from several schools and has a few offers already. He's hearing from Tennessee, Arkansas, Illinois, Wisconsin and UCLA. He's got offers from Kentucky, Duke, Vanderbilt, Syracuse, Western Kentucky, Memphis, Tulane, University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, and Middle Tennessee.

The Kentucky offer is Robinson's most recent. "They have a great program," said Robinson. "The coaches are great and they are great people. It's just a great place to be," he continued. "They have good things going on and they are going in the right direction," said Robinson.

"I was definitely glad (when they offered). I've had a good relationship with all the coaches there. I've been there several times and I was glad to get the offer," finished Robinson.

Cody has several more stops to make this summer, before his senior year begins. Robinson visited Tennessee and MTSU this past weekend. "I'm going to Vandy on the 13th, Duke on the 19th and I'm going to visit Syracuse. I'm probably going to Illinois and Ole Miss for camps," Robinson said.

No time frame is set for a decision, but Robinson has things under control. "I'll decide when I feel comfortable. When I feel 100 percent that I'm going to that school (I'll commit)," he said. "I'm looking for a place where I feel most comfortable. The coach is a big deal. And I want to go to the place where I feel like I can have the best career," he finished.
