Robinson talks Louisville spring game visit

Last season, Louisville (KY) Central WR Stephon Robinson helped lead his team to a state title. Next season, Robinson looks to be one of the state's top offensive weapons. Friday night, the speedy Robinson was front and center at Louisville's spring game.

"It was a real good visit," Stephan Robinson said. "It was better than I thought it would be. I talked to Coach (Greg) Nord, Coach (Jeff) Lewis and Coach (Larry) Slade. They were just telling me that I could fit in good with the offense and make a big impact with the offense. I could see myself in that offense."

Robinson, decked out in his Central sweatshirt, sat in the front row to watch Louisville's defense best the offense in the Red-White spring game.

"Right now I like how they are the underdog," Robinson said. "If Coach K doesn't have a winning season things are going to get rough but in reality Coach K is a good guy. That's my point of view. I think he's got some good guys in there that are going to get the job done. I think they're going to win some games this year and hopefully get to a bowl game."

Robinson attended Louisville's spring game with Central teammates Tim Patterson and Diaz Bolden. Patterson, a four-star linebacker prospect, is one of Louisville's top recruiting targets.

"(Tim) thought the defense was real good and he could see himself playing in that type of defense," Robinson said. "Louisville's defense won that game and earlier in the day the defense won our game and that's what we were talking about."

Robinson now plans to check out some Big 10 schools to compare with his spring game visit to Louisville. "I'm supposed to be going to Illinois next weekend for their spring game," Robinson said. "And I'm probably going to visit Indiana and Michigan State for their spring games."

Robinson holds offers from Louisville, Indiana and Illinois. Michigan State and Cincinnati are talking about offers, according to Robinson. Because they've made offers, the Cardinals, Hoosiers and Illini currently hold the edge in the speedy wide receivers recruitment.

"The three (programs) that have offered are standing out right now," said Robinson.

Despite holding three offers, Robinson says he isn't in a hurry to make a college decision. He plans to take some official visits in the fall before settling on a school. "Recruiting isn't my main priority right now," Robinson said. "I'm planning to make my decision on national signing day. I'm going to take my visits in the fall first."

Finding a situation close to home will likely play a role in Robinson's decision. "It's not that big of a factor but my main part is to stay close to my family," Robinson said. "I don't want to get too far away from my family."

Robinson said he had four touchdowns in Central's spring game last Friday. "And I broke a guy's ribs when I ran him over," Robinson said.
