Maryland is in love with Matt Robinson's size, and wants him on the defensive side of the ball at safety, while Pitt wants him to play tight end or H-back. Robinson is not sure what position he wants to play yet.
"I really don't know yet," says Robinson. "I have some decisions to make, but it all depends on who offers me as well."
When the summer starts Robinson will be a busy young man. He will be traveling to one-day camps at both schools.
"I am going to Pitt on June 13th and Maryland on June 20th, both for one-day camps. Both schools are telling me that it's all going to come down to their camps. It is going to be a crazy month, hopefully I will do well and get my first two scholarships within a week of each other."
Robinson is torn between staying close to home at a program he is quite familiar with, or going to Pitt and playing H-back, a position that is quite intriguing to him.
"It is going to be a tough decision to make if they both offer. I really like what Pitt is talking about with me being a Chris Cooley type of H-back. But at the same time I am so connected with Maryland as it is, I have friends there, I've known some coaches there for a long time, I have been on campus four times in the last month. I sat in on meetings a couple times, watched practice and a scrimmage a few times, I am there all the time. I love Maryland as a school, but they do not have any scholarships available on offense, so if I go it will have to be at safety. Pitt is definitely my number one school right now because I can play offense, but Maryland is a close second. They just keep saying they love my size and think I would be a great safety on their defense."
Robinson is working hard in preparation for the summer workouts, having just participated in the Scout.com Combine in Baltimore and is also on a strict workout regimen.
"I train on Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday. I work out with a couple of guys, we hit the weight room every day and work something different, and then we go out and do agilities and conditioning afterwards."
