Adrien Robinson narrows list to three

Indiana wide receiver/tight end Adrien Robinson has narrowed his choices to three schools: Mississippi, Arkansas and Louisville. What's the latest on the three-star tight end's recruitment?

Three-star tight end Adrien Robinson (6-4, 225, 4.5), from Warren Central High School in Indianapolis (Ind.), is ranked as the No. 23 best tight end in the country by, but says that everybody is recruiting him as a wide receiver. "Everybody is telling me wide out," Robinson said.

He has narrowed his choices to three schools: Mississippi, Arkansas and Louisville--and the Rebels have a slight lead over the others. Robinson visited Mississippi on Dec. 1 and says they are recruiting him the hardest.

"I liked my visit to Ole Miss a lot," Robinson said. "The campus is nice. It's a small college town (Oxford) and had a nice feel to it. I loved just being able to hang out with the players and I really felt like I was one of the guys. We just hung out around the campus, went to a party, played video games…the usual stuff."

On January 19, Robinson will be visiting Louisville officially and then he heads to Arkansas the following weekend. "I love the offense at Louisville," Robinson said. "They throw the ball a lot and aren't too far from my house. It's only about two hours away, which isn't a big deal, but I count it as a plus."

Robinson was really impressed by the Razorbacks this year. "I think the program is really coming up," he said. "They did well this year and it's only the beginning for them. They have a lot of good young players. I'm visiting on Jan. 26.

"I'd like to play early if possible," Robinson said. "I know that Mississippi needs wide receivers and I'd probably get to play early there. That and because I've already taken my visit there are the reasons why Mississippi is my top choice."

Robinson says he won't be taking any other official visits. "Because I play basketball, it's hard for me to have time to take official visits," he said. "That's why I'm only taking three. I'll decide after I get back from my final trip."

Warren Central won the 5A state championship for the fourth year in a row, finishing 15-0. Robinson had 28 catches for 432 yards and three touchdowns.

Despite Robinson's on-field success, he still has some work to do in the classroom. He reports a 2.0 core GPA and a 17 ACT, which he is retaking in February. "I know what I need to do to qualify," Robinson said. "I'll take the test again and I'm working hard to get my grades up. Nobody has talked to me about a prep school or nothing."
