Robinson: Louisville in 'upper group'

Sean Robinson, the nation's No. 40 quarterback prospect, recently received an offer from Louisville. The 6-5, 210-pound Rochester (IL) HS standout is a true dual-threat weapon who says he's interested in what the Cardinals have to offer.

Sean Robinson, who runs a 4.5 forty, is one of the top dual-threat quarterbacks in the nation after passing for 1,523 yards and rushing for 1,071 yards as a junior. Robinson also threw for 16 touchdowns and rushed for eight more. That's why Louisville recently decided to extend an offer.

"It was good to get Louisville's offer," Robinson said. "Coach (Antonio) Goss called me last week and told me they were going to offer. I haven't gotten it in the mail yet but they said they were sending it out the next day. So I'm not sure why I haven't received it but I also haven't checked my mail in the last couple days."

Robinson said he's developed a good relationship with Goss and Louisville assistant Matt Wells this spring. Wells coaches the Louisville quarterbacks and has discussed the Cardinals quarterback situation with Robinson over the phone in recent weeks.

"I've talked to Coach Goss and Coach Wells a couple times," said Robinson. "I like Coach Goss a lot. He came in and my head coach liked him a lot too. It's the same with Coach Wells. I haven't met him in person but over the phone he's seems like a good guy. He's young and he seems like a good coach."

Many college coaches have visions of a Tim Tebow-sort of quarterback when they watch Robinson. That's why Robinson has picked up 22 offers this spring from programs like Nebraska, Stanford, Boston College, Iowa and Washington State. Where does Louisville stack up against the competition?

"(Louisville) is definitely in the upper group," Robinson said. "I'm still wide-open and there's a lot of schools still in it. But they're (Louisville) definitely in the upper handful of schools that I want to take a closer look at."

Robinson visited Purdue earlier this week and will visit Nebraska this weekend. He also recently visited Iowa and plans to visit Northwestern this summer.

"I'd like to make my decision before the season," Robinson said. "So hopefully I can visit the schools that I need to (this summer) and go from there. The character of the coaching staff is kind of what it comes down to. I want to make sure I'm around loyal and trustworthy people for five years of my life."

Robinson also wants to find an offense that fits his style.

"I like the spread (offense). I run the ball a lot in our system," said Robinson. "We've got a system just like Florida's and Central Michigan. So that would be an easier transition. When it's all said and done the offensive scheme will play a role in the decision but not a big one."
