Joshua Robinson Commits to Louisiana Tech

Louisiana Tech picked up a big first commitment for the Class of 2011. The Bulldogs reach into the State of Texas for a big lineman.

"It's been a journey," said Joshua Robinson, the 6'5" 285-pound guard from Lancaster, TX. "Recruiting has been a long process. I didn't want to make a decision based on the name of the school. I wanted to go over all of my options before I made a final decision."

"I chose Louisiana Tech for the overall feel," explained Robinson. "I like the atmosphere. I don't feel like I need to go to a huge school. I'm a small town guy. I feel like it is home and I'm happy with my decision."

"It came down to Texas Tech, Louisiana Tech, and UTEP," added Robinson, who had offers from Minnesota, Iowa State, UTEP, UNT, and Utah State along with the Bulldogs. "I went to Junior Day at Louisiana Tech in June, then I went back that Monday to see more of the campus. Coach Eggen is a great recruiter. I also got to meet Coach Perot. He is a good judge of talent. Hopefully he can teach me to be a real good offensive lineman."

Lancaster has put out a lot of Division One players recently. Kendall Hayes signed with Louisiana Tech back in the spring. The Bulldog coaching staff is also taking a close look at Trey Brown, a three-star linebacker for Lancaster with offers so far from Houston and Tulsa.

Lancaster opens with Dallas-Carter. Robinson will be a force for the Tigers. The First Team All-District 15-4A Guard said he loves to initiate contact. "I'm an athlete," explained Robinson. "I fell like I'm balanced as a lineman, but I can run people over. Just tell me what to do and I'll get it done."

Joshua Robinson is a good fit to anchor future offensive lines for the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs and he is a good fit to anchor the 2011 recruiting class for Louisiana Tech Head Coach Sonny Dykes.
