FSU commit still interested in Miami

JoJo Robinson is a very talented wide receiver prospect from Miami Northwestern High. A Florida State commitment since the spring, Robinson's keeping an open mind and Miami's still on his list.

WR JoJo Robinson: 6-0/185, 4.40/40

2013 stats: Robinson caught 19 passes for 162 yards and 0 touchdowns in 10 games for the Bulls this season.

As a prospect: Robinson is one of the fastest players in this year's class. He has tremendous straight-ahead speed, and has the ability to get behind defenses. He's more of an athlete (and a tremendous one) than a pure wide receiver right now. He also has the skill set to play cornerback at the college level. He also comes from one of the top prep programs in South Florida, one that produced Artie Burns in last year's recruiting class.

Recruiting: Robinson committed to Florida State during the summer before his junior season. He remains committed to them but is keeping an open mind. Since his commitment to the Noles, Robinson has attended a Junior Day, multiple spring practices, a summer camp, and a game at Miami. He's been very active on Miami's campus. He has official visits scheduled for USF and Arkansas, and plans to see Miami again in the near future.

Bottom Line: Robinson admits growing up a Miami fan. Considering how often he'd been by the school, it was somewhat surprising when he committed to Florida State when he did. The general feeling is that it won't stick and that he'll end up signing somewhere else. He has connections to both USF (friends/former teammates on their roster) and Arkansas (Randy Shannon has a lot of ties to his school and the area) so they remain legit possibilities. Miami has been recruiting him for a couple years now, and seems to be in solid shape -- especially since he grew up a Canes fan. The only way I can see him not ending up in this class is that either Miami goes in another direction (unlikely) or he simply wants to get away from home.
