Duke Robinson, OL/DL, 6-5, 325, 5.7, ATLANTA, GEORGIA (BOOKER T. WASHINGTON HS):

JH: How is football going at the moment?


GR: "We started training camp in the summer and we have already started school. I don't mind going school. I like school, so I am glad that it is underway."

JH: How has your training gone this summer?

GR: "I got food poisoning at the beginning of training camp, and then I got a stomach virus. I got off to a rough start. Now, I am totally healthy and things are going better for me in camp."

JH: Are you still playing both ways?

GR: "I am going both ways at offensive tackle on offense and defensive tackle on defense. It really doesn't matter where I play, but I like playing on offense better."

JH: Hasn't your season already started?

GR: "We played our first game last Saturday against Douglas and lost by five. I thought I played pretty good. Everybody else thought I played pretty well so I guess I did. I finished the game with six pancake blocks. I opened up a lot of holes for our running backs."

JH: How many schools have offered you at this point?

GR: "I have been offered by 42 schools at this point. I have narrowed my choices down to Georgia, Oklahoma, Alabama, Miami, Auburn, LSU, Florida, Arkansas and Maryland."

JH: Do you have a leader?

GR: "I would say that Georgia, Oklahoma and Miami are my three favorite schools."

JH: What are your thoughts on Oklahoma?

GR: "I like Oklahoma a lot. They are always in a big bowl game, and it seems they are always playing for a National Championship. I know they need some offensive linemen in the program, and that is something else that appeals to me."

JH: Would it be tough to leave the state of Georgia?

GR: "I guess you could say that. Georgia is close to home, but I am not afraid to leave the state. There is a possibility that I will leave the state."
