On Hold

Wide receiver/defensive back Bruce Robinson (6-1, 185, 4.6) of Manhattan Beach, Calif., names Oregon as a solid favorite over Nevada.

"I still don't have offers from any schools," explained Bruce Robinson, of Mira Costa High School. "But I have been talking with Oregon and Nevada-Reno a lot and they are definitely interested in me.

"At Oregon I talk with Don Pellam (linebackers). They call about every other week. They are waiting for my SAT scores before offering -- pretty much all of the schools are waiting for my SATs."

Robinson took the SAT for the first-time on Oct. 8 and reports a 2.6 GPA.

"Oregon has a really good football program. Kevin Garrett (defensive back, Narbonne High School, Carson, Calif.), my cousin, goes there. I would like to follow in his footsteps. He's enjoying himself out there and has nothing but good things to say about them.

"I have never been out there myself, but I would like to, once my SAT scores come in and I can show the coaches that I am qualified," he said. "We have been talking about me visiting, but I know I won't be able to until my test scores are in.

"Nevada-Reno has been showing me a lot of love. They are in contact with me a lot. I have watched them play games and they pass a lot. On defense they hit a lot -- everyone goes for the ball. I like that.

"Oregon has been looking at me as a receiver and defensive back, while Nevada-Reno is just looking for a defensive back. I have a strong preference to playing receiver, but I on defense I do love to hit," Robinson said.

"I will be sending more tapes out to these schools after this week because this week I will be playing more defense."

Mira Costa (6-0) travels to Palos Verdes to take on Peninsula (6-0) on Oct. 21. "This is my first real chance since our first game to play defense. Tomorrow I will be playing a whole lot of defense. Peninsula runs a lot more and my coaches want me to get in there because I hit hard," he said.

Robinson reports 24 catches for 430 yards and seven touchdowns. No defensive stats.
