Down to two teams, Greg Robinson now has both of his official visits in the books.
He visited Auburn for their win over Georgia. This weekend, the Robinson family spent Friday and Saturday night in Baton Rouge.
“My mom and dad came with me,” he said. “The first night I got over there and started hanging on campus with Russell Shepard. He was my host. We went to a little party he was throwing and then just hung out. Alonzo Lewis was there and so was Dak Prescott. Tyrann Mathieu was hosting Alonzo and James Wright was with Dak.
“We were all having fun. Those guys are all real cool. I always have fun with Alonzo, and I had never met Dak, but he seemed pretty cool. He’s definitely a big dude. I was surprised when he said he was a quarterback.”
Robinson rejoined his parents on Saturday morning for a day spent eating with the Prescott and Lewis families – with a tour of the LSU campus mixed in between.
“All we did was eat,” Robinson laughed. “It was fun though. We got to be around the coaches and everyone’s family. At dinner we went to the top of Tiger Stadium and ate in the suites. That was pretty cool. When we were done coach Miles had the grown ups over to eat dessert at his house, and the rest of us went out again.”
After 48 hours spent with coach Miles and his staff, Robinson said his mother’s first trip to the LSU campus was a success.
“My dad had been able to see the facilities and all that, but my mom had never been up there to look at any of it,” he said. “She really liked the academic side of things. That’s the most important thing to her. She liked what coach Miles said that LSU could offer me on that side of things. We did a bunch of tours, so that was big for her.
“I had seen most of it all, but I was definitely impressed with a couple of the new things I’ve learned. I hadn’t really seen all the academic stuff, so that was cool. I liked watching the highlight film that the coaches put together, because that was the first time I had seen any of that. I would give the trip a great review. The coaches all make me feel like I am one of their top priorities. It's tough to turn away from that in your home state.”
While the Thibodaux native has until February to decide, expect a decision to come much sooner.
“I want to announce before the Army All-American game in January, but if I wait to announce then it will be then,” he said. “It’s a really hard decision right now. Weekends like this make me really think on things. I have been back and forth.
“I keep going to Auburn and feel like it's in my head to go there. Then I come to LSU and I just feel at home. That's what's making this decision so difficult.”
