The 6-5, 270 pound prospect enjoyed his visit to Rutgers this weekend where he saw two former teammates. "It was good," said Robinson during a Sunday interview with CUTigers.com. "It was a good visit. I got to spend some time with two of my former teammates."

So did the visit get the prize recruit any closer to a decision?

"I am still around the same. I am still committed to Rutgers but other things keep coming up so I don't know where I will end up."

Robinson's parents want him to choose the school that will give him the best opportunity to play in the National Football League.

"My parents keep trying to talk me into going other places. They won't me to go somewhere that will help me make it to the pros. My parents think it will be Clemson. They want me to go to Clemson. I feel like if I'm good enough I can make it to the next level no matter where I go," added the Florida native.

Coach Bowden will get a chance to sell Robinson and his parents on Tuesday when he visits Miami. "I think Coach Bowden is coming to my house on Tuesday," stated Robinson.

Robinson doesn't expect to make his final decision until signing day. "I will make my final decision on signing day. I'm trying to weigh everything but every time I come up with a favorite someone comes up with something else to consider."

The talented prospect will take an official visit to the University of Florida this weekend. We will continue to keep you updated on this outstanding lineman from Florida, right up through signing day 2004.
