Robinson enjoys Louisville visit

Louisville is looking to land several cornerbacks in this recruiting class. Eric Robinson, a speedy corner from Indianapolis, visited Louisville Friday and took in the Cardinals practice. Robinson, who made the trip with several talented teammates, enjoyed his experience watching the Cardinals.

Eric Robinson, a speedy defensive back from Indianapolis (IN) Warren Central, checked out Louisville's practice Friday with several of his high school teammates.

"It went good," Robinson said. "I met the players and coaches and I met a quarterback that committed, DaMarcus Smith. Coach [Vance] Bedford told me I'd have a great chance of playing because they're going to be real low on corners."

Robinson visited Louisville with several teammates, including defensive back Nick Temple and four-star offensive lineman Kiaro Holts. Robinson, Temple and Holts led Warren Central to the Indiana state championship last year and hold offers from the Cardinals.

"They're at the top of my list, well I can't say at the top of my list but they're a school I'm considering," Robinson said of UofL. "I like that I could have the possibility to play my freshman year and not waiting a few years to play."

Bedford, the Cardinals defensive coordinator, is looking to add several cornerbacks for this recruiting class. Though Robinson played mostly wide receiver as a junior, he prefers corner after playing the position as a sophomore. Robinson also has the speed to stick with wide receivers, being clocked at 4.47 electronically at's Combine in Cincinnati last year.

"[Bedford] likes that I love to compete and my speed," Robinson said. "I have a lot of speed to cover receivers. I played receiver last year but corner is my more natural position because I like to cover receivers."

Besides Louisville, Robinson also holds an offer from Toledo. He visited Ball State last week and plans to make several other visits this spring.

"I went to Ball State [Tuesday] and Toledo has offered," Robinson said. "Ball State was nice. I got to watch them practice. They have a nice team and they are talking about an offer."

Iowa, Indiana and Cincinnati are also expressing interest in Robinson. "I'm getting a lot of interest from them," Robinson said. "I'm going to visit all of them."

Robinson doesn't plan to make a decision soon.

"I'm going to be patient with recruiting. When I feel comfortable that I should commit somewhere that's when I would commit," said Robinson. "I want to come in and play and go somewhere I fit in with the program and my family likes. And if they have my major or not. My parents like Louisville."
