Robinson Planning NU Visit

With two offers on the table and other schools showing interest, Liberty (TX) High School safety Izaiah Robinson is working to research his options. The two-star is planning on taking official visits in the fall and admits those will likely play a major role in his decision.

Robinson (6-1, 175) has offers from Northwestern and Washington State and has picked up interest from Arizona, Baylor, Georgia, Iowa, Purdue, Rice, Texas A&M, and others.

This fall, Robinson is planning out a number of official visits to his numerous options—Northwestern being one definite stop. He is hoping these visits will help bring him closer to a decision.

"Just (seeing) the campus and getting to meet the staff would be great," said Izaiah Robinson. "That's all I'm really looking for."

Robinson is looking for a number of specifics but the most important thing is to find if the school has the right feeling. He is planning on visiting Evanston, Pullman, WA., and possibly a few others.

"I want to see the atmosphere and feeling I'll have for the next four or five years of your life—just getting a good feeling is all I want," Robinson said. "I've heard both (Evanston and Pullman) are really nice. I just want to see both."

Both Purdue and Rice are hinting at potentially offering Robinson. For now, the two schools who have offered—Northwestern and Washington State—stand out the most. As for a favorite, the safety admits he is split between the two.

The Wildcats were the second program to jump into the mix and Robinson—whose film stood out with the NU coaches—remains very high on Northwestern. For Robinson, one thing in particular stands out the most.

"I have to say academics (stand out) because my parents are really impressed," Robinson said. "They're a top school academically."

As a junior, Robinson finished with 44 total tackles and two interceptions. He helped lead Liberty High School to a 12-1 record and a deep playoff run.
