For the nation's top offensive tackle, LSU's "Boys from the Boot" Junior Day was just another trip.
Cameron Robinson has made several unofficial visits to Baton Rouge. He's camped at LSU and he's attended some of the biggest games in school's history. So there wasn't much left to surprise him when he travelled south again.
"I've been down there a couple times, so I've come to know what's going on," Robinson said. "I know most, if not all, of the coaches. I know a couple of the recruits. It wasn't anything but another trip."
That doesn't mean the visit wasn't beneficial for all parties involved. The LSU coaching staff got another valuable opportunity to score face-time with one of the nation's most highly recruited prospects.
Robinson spent most of the day with offensive line coach Greg Studrawa, and most of the conversations revolved around one theme.
"He's really adamant telling me if I come in and work hard, that I can get a lot of playing time early. He stressed that to me a lot. If I'm ready to work, I could see a lot of playing time."
Though LSU has used the three-and-out pitch recently for some of the other top prospects, it's not the most important appeal for Robinson.
"It's not the highest on my list," he said. "If I have to come and sit for a year, and just learn from guys ahead of me, taking in everything I can…it's not a problem."
What is most important is his comfort with the campus. And with Robinson already having that kind of familiarity with the Baton Rouge scene, that should help the Tigers score some early points with the West Monroe standout.
"It's how comfortable I feel on the campus," Robinson said. "If I feel like I'd be happy spending my next four years there. If it's a place I enjoy, and how much I feel at home…I have the utmost comfort with LSU. I know where everything is. I'm very comfortable in that environment."
Next up for Robinson will likely be a visit to Alabama for their Junior Day, though he hasn't made any plans yet. He said he'd also like to check out Texas A&M some time in the near future.
He added he's not in a hurry to make his decision, and that's something the LSU staff respected on Saturday.
"They were just saying that if I wanted to make an early commitment, that's fine," Robinson said. "But if I don't, that's fine also. They encouraged me to take my time, and when I have my mind made up, they'll be there to help out."
