A Q&A With RB/LB Devin Robinson

East Limestone High School (Athens, AL) class of 2011 running back/linebacker Devin Robinson talks about his experience at the Mississippi State camp as well as how his recruitment is going.

What camps have you attended so far this summer?
"So far, I went to Vandy's camp, I went to Auburn last Sunday and this camp, the Mississippi State camp, is my third camp."

Where else do you plan on going?
"I still have the Ole Miss camp July 17th, then I go to another Kentucky camp. And I might try to make an Alabama camp."

Height and weight-wise what did you measure here at the State camp?
"6-2, 220."

You are big for a running back. What was your forty time here
"My forty was a 4.5 flat."

You have speed and you are big. How do you describe yourself, a power back or a speed back?
"Probably, versatile. It just depends on what part of the game I'm in or what play it is. I can run over you or try to beat you to the sideline or try to make you miss."

What schools have offered you so far?
"Southern Miss, UAB, Troy, Arkansas State, South Alabama and Middle Tennessee."

I noticed you are attending a lot of SEC camps. Which SEC schools are recruiting you?
"LSU, Vandy, Auburn, Mississippi State and Tennessee."

What are the coaches telling you?
"The coaches want me to get down to their camp, check out their campuses and work with them a little bit so they can check out my footwork?"

What did the Mississippi State coaches say they like about you?
"They said they like that I'm a real big, strong guy that has good footwork and pretty good speed. It's up to Mother Nature as to whether I play offense or defense."

Do you want to play offense or defense?
"I want to play offense."

I would assume you want to stay at running back on offense?
"Yes sir, running back."

Where are the coaches talking about playing you on defense?
"I have heard linebacker, d-end and strong safety."

Do you play any other position other than running back in high school?
"Yes sir, I play linebacker in high school."

Which coach at Mississippi State is recruiting you?
"Manny Diaz."

What did he say he's going to do with you, recruiting-wise, now that you have attended their camp and he's seen you up close?
"He said he wants to stay in contact with me and keep me coming back to their campus. And he wants me to keep learning about Mississippi State football. Keep working hard and stay in the weight room."
