Huge week for Cameron Robinson

Cameron Robinson picked up offers from LSU, Texas, Arkansas and Mississippi State this week.

Ouachita Parish High's Cameron Robinson is in line to be one of the nation's elite offensive lineman from the Class of 2014.

The past three days proved as much.

Though he has been on visits to both Alabama and LSU for spring games, and has gotten attention from several coaching staffs, Robinson's recruitment didn't officially get rolling until Monday – when his first scholarship offer came in.

"(Mississippi State offensive line coach John Hevesy came by the school, and he said they were high on me and wanted to offer," Robinson said. "When I told him I didn't have any other offers yet, he was shocked. He said he was happy to have Mississippi State be the first."

Mississippi State didn't stand alone for long.

Within 24 hours, Robinson was one the phone with LSU offensive coordinator and line coach Greg Studrawa, who had a verbal offer ready to deliver.

"I've always known Coach Stud and LSU were really high on me," Robinson said. "He talked with my coach on Tuesday, and (Studrawa) said he was going to be offering me in person when he came to see me next week, but when he heard Mississippi State offered me (Monday), he went ahead and made sure I knew an LSU offer was also there.

"I was excited, but really I was more honored. It feels good to know that hard work pays off."

As quickly as Robinson went from zero offers to one, the rising junior went from one to three.

"Texas and Arkansas offered me (Wednesday)," Robinson said. "It's more scholarships that I'm pretty excited about.

"I'm going to have to make some visits and take it all in."

Moving into the summer months, Robinson said he has trips to Tuscaloosa and Baton Rouge planned, visits he hopes bring him closer to his two favorite programs.

"I think LSU and Alabama are just top-notch schools, and I've seen them up close and know how great they are," Robinson said.

"My last trips were for the two spring games, and I liked them both a lot. When I was in Baton Rouge, I got to talk with Coach Stud for a while, and his big thing was camp. He said he was really excited to be able to work with me again."

Robinson first crossed paths with Studrawa after his freshman campaign last summer, where Robinson worked out for multiple members of the LSU staff during his stay in Baton Rouge.

"I camped down there and it was really helpful, because I was able to learn a lot of technique and take my game to the next level after getting tips from Coach Stud," Robinson said. "Then I got one-on-one time with Les Miles, and that was crazy for me because I was only a freshman.

"I knew then that LSU was very interested, and they stayed in touch the whole time so far."

OPHS head coach John Carr has high hopes for Robinson, who will be a cornerstone on the blindside for a team that went 9-3 last fall.

"He is a natural left tackle," Carr told's Mike Coppage. "Cameron continued to get better as the season went on. He has that competitive streak.

"He's big and athletic, and it's something to see when you watch him bounding around. You should see him jumping rope. He's got knee bend and flexibility."
