Robb likes the Buckeyes and Irish

Canal Fulton Northwest junior Teddy Robb had a fine season in 2006 in leading his team into the playoffs. Robb, one of the top juniors in the state, talked about how recruiting is going for him at this early stage.

Canal Fulton Northwest (Ohio) junior Teddy Robb had a fine season this year and the college recruiters have taken notice. Robb, 6-foot-1 and 185 pounds, caught 49 passes for 683 yards and scored eight touchdowns from his wide receiver spot for the Indians.

Robb, who ran a 4.55 forty-yard dash at Akron this past summer, talked about the colleges that have been showing interest to this point.

"I went to two games at Ohio State this year," said Robb. "I was at the Bowling Green game and also saw the Minnesota game. The atmosphere was unbelievable. I've been there for camp, but to see that place on game day is really special. Ohio State is one of my favorites at this point for sure."

"I was also invited to Notre Dame this year and I went to the game against Army," Robb said of the experience. "The tradition is something special at Notre Dame. They have their walk to the stadium, just like Ohio State, and it was great to see. Notre Dame has great facilities and everything seemed brand new. It was an awesome experience and the equal of Ohio State in my eyes."

Robb also mentioned Indiana and Akron as schools that are also showing early interest in this talented junior.

"Indiana has called the school and has invited me to come see a game, but we couldn't get that scheduled this year," he explained. "Akron is also showing a lot of interest. Coach [Reno] Ferri has been to the school and I've been to their camp the past two years. Akron is an up and coming program and it's really close to my home. They're just right down the road."

When pressed to name a favorite, Robb said he was torn between two of the schools he has visited so far.

"I'd have to say I like Ohio State and Notre Dame the best right now," he said. "It's still really early and I'm going to take my time and make sure I find the right school for me."
