Elijah Robinson, 6-3, 255, 4.65, DE, Camden, Woodrow Wilson H.S.
Minnesota and Temple added offers. Previously Elijah had offers from Rutgers, West Virginia, Virginia, Indiana and Central Florida.
West Virginia - "I like the coaching staff, I went down to visit with Jamil Tyson who was on my team last year. He is going there. I liked it down there."
Virginia - "I haven't been down there yet but I talked to the coach who is recruiting me in May and he was cool. I'll be going down there this summer with my high school coach."
Days at camp
"I didn't go to any camps except that I went to a one day camp at Temple. After that I got an offer."
Will he make and early decision or a late one?
"I probably decide during the middle of my season this year."
"Just to get ready for next year, work hard on the weak parts of my game to get them stronger so I can be my best next year."
Last year Elijah opened some eyes with his versatile and talented performance for Woodrow Wilson. Out of the linebacker spot Elijah had 63 tackles (including an impressive 34 for loss), 1 interception, 3 forced fumbles and 6 fumbles recovered. On offense Elijah had 12 carries for 56 yards and a touchdown in a short stint at fullback before, out of necessity he was moved to cover the center position. At this point in time Elijah was already getting the attention of recruiters but his excellent showing at the center position really started turning heads and impressing college coaches with his versatility and overall athleticism.
