TE Robinson Set to Prove He's a Wideout

Indianapolis Warren Central has three sure fire division one prospects this year. The Michigan Wolverines have already picked up one in safety Jerimy Finch. They also have their eyes on another one; WR/TE Adrien Robinson.

Indianapolis Warren Central has brought home a state title in each of the past three seasons. In 2006, they appear poised to bring home a fourth. The powerhouse program continues to churn out not only championships, but division one talent as well. The Michigan Wolverines have tapped into that pipeline recently, grabbing linebacker Chris Graham two years ago, and securing a verbal from standout safety Jerimy Finch last week. Another prospect that has garnered interest from the Wolverines is 6-5, 225-lb wide receiver Adrien Robinson.

Robinson caught only 11 balls in a run-oriented offense last year, but that hasn't stop college coaches from recognizing his talent.

"I have offers from IU (Indiana), Louisville, West Virginia, Arkansas, Marshall," said Robinson. "I'm hearing from a lot of other schools. I'm hearing from Michigan. They haven't offered me though."

Robinson's offer list could begin to grow again once college coaches get the chance to observe him in upcoming spring and summer camps. He was on hand for the Nike camp in Columbus a few weeks ago, but wasn't able to use it as the proving ground he intended it to be.

"I was just watching," Robinson said after not participating in the camp. "I didn't work out because of an injury. I'm going to the Nike camp in Oregon though. I'll work out there."

Once Robinson is evaluated this summer, it could determine what position he'll be recruited for by a lot of programs…including Michigan. That said, the youngster does have a preference.

"It will be tight end, wide receiver, or both," Robinson said regarding the position he's being recruited for by the Maize and Blue. "They haven't said really. I want to play wide receiver."

If the Wolverines do offer, they could rise sharply up Robinson's list. The recent commitment a Jerimy Finch is definitely a feather in Michigan's cap. However, the versatile pass-catcher insists he will remain open for the time being.

"We talk about going to the same place," said Robinson of he and Finch. "Not seriously, so I don't know. I'm going to go wherever I fit in. It will depend on ff I like the atmosphere and stuff like that."

"Right now I don't have a favorite," Robinson continued. "I don't have a top five either."
