Louisville offers Charlotte running back

Isaiah Robinson of Charlotte (N.C.) Independence has already collected multiple scholarship offers, including one from Louisville. Cardinal Authority has the latest on the talented running back.

Following a stellar junior season that saw Isaiah Robinson rack up 1,549 yards and 18 touchdowns on 200 carries, the Charlotte (N.C.) Independence High School product has become one of his state's top recruiting targets.

Robinson is drawing interest from all of the in-state schools, with East Carolina and Wake Forest already extending scholarship offers. He recently picked up his first out of state offer from ACC-bound Louisville.

"It's pretty cool, but it's a long process," Robinson said of the recruiting process. "It is something that you have to put a lot of thought into. You need to take your visits and the coaches and players."

Robinson has already started taking some of those visits and plans to continue throughout the spring. He attended East Carolina and North Carolina Junior Day's and will make a similar trip to Wake Forest later this month.

"Carolina was nice and we even went to a basketball game, which was pretty cool," he said. "ECU took me on a tour of the entire school and I met a couple players, it was nice. I've been invited to some spring games from UNC Charlotte, Louisville, Wake Forest and ECU."

Louisville extended an offer after evaluating his game film.

"My coach sent them some tape on me and they evaluated it," he explained. "A couple weeks later, I called them and they told me about my evaluation and then offered me. I didn't know much about them at the time, but I do know that they are moving to the ACC."

Robinson anticipates making his college decision prior to the start of his senior season.

"I'm thinking about the possibility of making my decision by mid-summer or by my first game, that way I wouldn't have to worry about it," he said, adding that he isn't ready to claim any favorites. "Not yet. I want to check out all the options first."
