Two Huge Offers Pending for Robinson

Lake Region safety Marvin Robinson has been considered one of Florida's top prospects in the class of 2010. However, his recent performances at camps and combines have made many think he is one of the top sophomores in the nation. Two schools who also think so, are a pair of perennial national title contenders who told the Sunshine State star he would have offers from them in hand soon.

When looking at Marvin Robinson’s offer list, the phrase “quality over quantity” springs to mind. The Lake Region junior to-be has only four offers to his name, but each are from one of the nation’s top programs and carries a significant weight.

Already with verbal offers from the Michigan and Ohio State, the 6’0, 190-lb safety was told this week by USC and Florida that official offers would be on their way shortly.

“The Trojans offered me, I’m excited about the offer,” Robinson said, “one of their coaches came down and they told me they like me on film and I’m a great athlete and they were going to send me an offer in September.”

As for the Gator offer, he said, “Coach Strong had come down a few weeks ago, but he hadn’t contacted me yet. Then they talked to me and said I was a great athlete and they were going to send me an offer. They’re recruiting me as an outside linebacker.”

Having just finished spring ball with his Lake Region teammates, Robinson is now looking ahead to the summer months where he will be taking classes and hitting the road and visiting a number of schools who are showing him interest.

“I plan to visit USC in July,” he reported, “and I’m going to Tennessee, they might offer me and they came to my practice so I plan to go up there. I’m planning on going up to Michigan too.”

With it being early in the process, Robinson says he is keeping an open mind and all of his options open. While he had previously said that he could make a commitment as early as this summer, the recent offers and interest have changed his timetable just a bit.

“I’m going to hold off,” he said, “I want to see how many offers I can get and then choose from those.”
