Michigan Pledge Considering UNC Visit

Although he says his verbal commitment to Michigan is firm, Marvin Robinson plans to visit several schools in the coming months.

"There's a chance that the schools I will visit could change my mind," Robinson said. "I want to see the difference between Michigan and those schools that I'm visiting."

Robinson, 6-foot-1, 186-pound safety from Eagle Lake (Fla.) Lake Region, is considering visiting Alabama, Georgia, North Carolina, South Florida, and Tennessee.

South Florida is the only school Robinson will visit over the summer. The rest of his trips will occur during the football season and will likely be official visits. Robinson hasn't scheduled any of his fall trips.

Robinson's lack of summer trips is a byproduct of a busy school course load.

"I'm basically just trying to graduate early," Robinson said. "I'm taking different classes [over the summer] that will put me in the situation where I can graduate early.

"Right now, I'm taking English IV in summer school. So when I go back to school, I only have to take classes that end in December."

Robinson is in summer school from 8 a.m. to noon. Following an hour and a half break, he returns to school until 5:30 p.m. From 6 p.m. to 7 p.m., Robinson works on his online classes. After squeezing in a workout, he resumes work on his online classes until 10 or 11 o'clock at night.

"It's real tough, but I think it's better preparing me for college," Robinson said.

Besides Michigan assistant coaches Greg Robinson and Rod Smith, Robinson corresponds the most with Joe Tresey of South Florida.

Robinson's communication with UNC has picked up recently. Because of his hectic class schedule, Robinson has resorted to exchanging emails with John Blake.

"[Blake] is just basically talking about how they want me to come there bad [and] just basically different things that they could do with me with playing safety or outside linebacker," Robinson said.
