Reynoldsburg DB Has Big Ten Offers

Reynoldsburg (Oh.) DB/WR Armand Robinson has been quietly flying under the radar this summer and has picked up some quality scholarship offers, and the Columbus-area star is also getting interest from Ohio State. Read on for the latest on Robinson.

Reynoldsburg's Armand Robinson isn't a player who has been talked about much this summer, but the WR/DB has been quietly picking up some impressive offers. 

"I have offers from North Carolina, Wisconsin, and Minnesota," Robinson said.

Robinson (6-1, 186) camped at North Carolina and Ohio State and put up some good numbers at OSU. 

"I ran a 4.45 forty," he said. "I wouldn't know, but I hear it is a slow track. I had an 8.9 broad jump. I don't recall the rest. I really don't pay much attention to my numbers."

Each of the schools that have offered as well as Ohio State are recruiting Robinson as a defensive back. 

"I would rather play wide receiver, but I am fine with being a safety," Robinson said. "Wisconsin, Minnesota and North Carolina all like me as a safety too, so I might as well get used to it."

Robinson says he is one of five defensive backs Ohio State has their eye on.

"At Ohio State, I was told there are five DBs and they will take two more," he said. "I am one of the 5.

Robinson does not plan on deciding early. 

"I want to wait to make a decision," he said. "I want to see how everything breaks."

What will be the main factors in his decision?

"I would say coaches, facilities, graduation rates, and depth chart are going to play the biggest role in my decision," he said.

Robinson has already taken the ACT but plans on taking it again.

"I got a 17 but that is not good enough," he said. "I am studying right now for the October test date."

Robinson had 42 receptions for 829 yards and eight touchdowns last year with 58 tackles on defense.
