OL Robin Lindor (6-4, 335 pounds, 5.4-seconds in the 40) of Edison High School in Miami, Fla now favors Miami, Florida State(offer), NC State(offer) and Oklahoma(offer).
Edison High School is a frequent stopping off point for college recruiters and 2004 has certainly been no different. The Pack is involved with no fewer than three of the school's top players including Lindor, RB Demerick Chancellor and CB Chris Chancellor. That talent has helped propel Edison to a 5-1 with their lone loss coming to last year's state champ in Miami-Pace High School.
Lindor, in particular, has emerged as a definite prospect to watch as he currently reports scholarship offers from the likes of Rutgers, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Pittsburgh, West Virginia, South Florida and Florida State. Last season Lindor lined up at guard along with Seminole offensive lineman Jacky Claude. This season Lindor has moved to tackle with mixed results.
"Last year I played guard but this year I play tackle," said Lindor. "Some of the schools recruiting me are looking at me as a guard because I think I had a better season when I played guard. But it doesn't matter, I'll play where ever they put me."
Recruiting is definitely picking for the mammoth lineman and he updated Pack Pride on his favorites.
FSU- "I like their facilities. My fellow teammate is there- OL Jacky Claude. Their sport's program is great."
NC State- "Their program is very nice. I need to take a visit up there to see how the facilities are but the pictures I saw- it looks very nice. I hadn't had a chance to talk to coach Holliday yet because every time he calls, I'm not at home. But Demerick tells me that he talks to him and Doc is interested in having me, Demerick, Chris and our TE, Clarence McPherson up there."
Miami- "I like everything about Miami. It's my hometown. I've had some family members go there. I see that every year Miami has a lineman going to the pros. Even their second string guys make it to the NFL."
"They're all the same right now until I take my visits."
Lindor plans to wait to very near signing day before making a decision but he's fairly sure that playing time will be a major consideration once it comes time to make a decision.
"I don't care about how far it is. I guess I'm looking at playing time. My motto is, the best man plays. If I'm the best player, I feel I should be on the field. If someone's better than me then he should be on the field."
