Like many of the top prospects from the state of Georgia, Cordele (Ga.) Crisp County’s Jammie Robinson becomes the latest football standout to be offered from Michigan.
In fact, he announced his enthusiasm for his latest offer on his twitter account earlier today.
Afterwards, The Michigan Insider caught up with Robinson, who gave more feedback on his initial offer from the Wolverines.
“It means a lot,” Robinson said. “Because I watched the Wolverines, I watched them play, they had a standout player on their team like Jabrill Peppers. I think I could be a two-way player like him at Michigan, too.”
Robinson, of course, is listed as an athlete in the Scout database, but he sees himself the same type of player as Peppers, playing viper on defense and running the ball on offense.
“Because at my school I already kind of play that,” he said. “You see how Jabrill Peppers plays both sides of the ball. I play both sides of the ball. I can cover. I can play on the block and tackle. Also, I can run the ball and make guys miss as well as play a huge role on defense.”
Peppers comparison aside, now that Robinson has his U-M offer, he says his next step is to get up to Michigan for a visit.
“I think I have a lot of visits I plan on going on this summer. So most definitely getting up there this summer,” he said, adding what he’s looking for on that visit.
“I want to feel at home. So, when I get up there I want to check out the campus, go around check out the field and ask questions. I want to learn more about the education at the school, engineering, all those type of things.”
Already, Robinson has been on multiple campus visits to Alabama, Auburn and Georgia among others. He also indicated, along with Michigan, he hopes to visit Tennessee, Kentucky and his other schools that have extended offers his way.
One thing is clear, however, distance will not play a factor in Robinson’s decision.
“It doesn’t play a factor how far the school is or anything, that don’t matter at all,” he said.
Robinson says he plans to announce his commitment after he takes his official visits during his senior year.
“And if the school is sticking out to me, if they hit me up more, talk to me and want to check out my family, that plays a huge role in it,” he said. “The school that stands out like that, then I will make my decision.”
