Super Sophomore Talks Michigan Visit

Marvin Robinson Jr of Lake Region, FL is looking like he will be one of the nation's most sought after recruits in a year or two. The Class of 2010 product came all the way up to Ann Arbor last weekend to visit Michigan and in the process, got to meet a couple of the Wolverine commits.

Dressed in all Michigan attire from a maize & blue hat to a shirt, right down to even his socks, Marvin Robinson Jr took in the Michigan-Penn State game, giving him a chance to experience a game in the Big House and see the Wolverines up close.

“It was real good,” Robinson said of the game. “I was really impressed by the defense. The whole team really, the offense too. It was so loud and it was a really big crowd.”

The talented sophomore had been to campus once already for camp, but this was his first game and opportunity for his parents to come along and see Ann Arbor.
“They liked it a lot,” he reported. “They were excited about the team and coming up there. They liked walking around campus and meeting the coaches. The tour went real well, they were telling us about all the academics, study rooms, the classes, personal tutors. It went real well and my parents like the idea of what they were doing.”
The visit was also a chance for him to talk to some current players and also connect with some of the Wolverine commitments who were on the sidelines and in the stands with Robinson.

“I talked to Mario Manningham, Jamar Adams, Toney Clemons and Donovan Warren,” he said. “I talked to Sam McGuffie too, he was telling me that Michigan would be the best choice and he had the opportunity to go to all different colleges but Michigan was the best place for him.”

Robinson said he will certainly be back again this summer for camp and it all goes well, he’ll be back before then to check out arguably college football’s best rivalry.

“We’re definitely trying to go back for the Ohio State game,” Robinson said.
