Mingo hearing from Huskers

Arkansas' wide receiver has been getting letters from Nebraska and has Nebraska in his top 4. Although projected to play wide receiver in college he actually played wide receiver, running back, and quarterback on offense last year.

This year he is making another move, but on the defensive side of the ball. Robert Mingo from Dumas, Ark. is now moving from his safety position on defense to linebacker. Regardless, his college career will be catching passes.

"People are really recruiting me as an athlete, but I think most are saying wide receiver," Mingo said. "I prefer wide receiver. It doesn't affect anything if they are recruiting me for defense."

The 6-foot-3 and 180 pound Mingo has 4.4/40 speed has great speed, but that may not be his biggest strength to playing the wide receiver position.

"Running good routes and being able to make a mismatch against a defensive back with my height and speed." As a cornerback Mingo said his strengths are, "Because I play the wide receiver position, knowing the routes and knowing what he is going to do."

A list of schools is growing that have come to Dumas to see Mingo. The list includes Arizona State, LSU, Arkansas and Memphis. Mingo has received phone calls from all of the schools that have come to see him plus Tennessee.

Mingo is receiving mail from Iowa, Ole Miss, Nebraska, Arkansas and Memphis. His leaders right now according to him are, "Arkansas, Memphis, Nebraska and probably Iowa."

Mingo is looking for a school that offers a good football tradition and program that is like a family. He will also be looking at the coaches.

Robert is planning on attending the camp at Arkansas and possibly at Tennessee. He has taken the ACT and received a passing score of 18 and is holding a 2.9 GPA.
