Robinson Talks About His Commitment

Offensive lineman Jesse Robinson of Hurst (L.D. Bell), Texas, let everybody know it was Oklahoma State that he was pledging to Monday night via Twitter. We got a chance Tuesday night to find out why Robinson picked the Cowboys. He said it was the school, the players, and the coaches that sold him.

"Really, the last time that I was there was for the Iowa State game," said Robinson when asked why Oklahoma State. "Just that time at the game and seeing the coaches, the players, and the atmosphere of it all. The coaches and players, I am really comfortable with."

Robinson was at the Homecoming game against Iowa State on Oct. 20, so he took a little time from that visit.

"A couple of weeks to make sure," said the 6-6, 280-pound offensive tackle prospect. "I wanted to talk to my family about it, and have everybody be behind my decision on going to Oklahoma State."

Robinson said both of his parents attended Kansas Wesleyan and so there was no real tie to schools he was considering that were recruiting him. He did have an offer from Kansas State.

Robinson is a good student and said he is considering civil engineering as a major. The standout blocker also cleared up the playoff situation for us as Bell is 7-2 and finishing the regular season with Colleyville Heritage.

"Yes, we are in if we just win the game with Colleyville Heritage," explained Robinson. "If we lose and Irving MacArthur beats Irving by 17 points or more then it would go to a tiebreaker. We just need to win and take care of our business."

That would mean Robinson would take care of business twice this week.
