The 2007 New Jersey recruiting class is among the deepest in recent memory. There are more than 50 players holding offers from Division 1A schools along with a number of other players awaiting offers pending SAT scores or review of senior first semester grades. Among those players waiting for the review of senior grades is Karon Robinson. His game breaking ability and allusiveness has caught the attention of Rutgers, Iowa, Minnesota, Penn State, and Notre Dame.
His first semester grades will be released on November 3rd, where he fully expects to have a better than 3.0 average. If so, he expects to recieve offers from Iowa, Minnesota, and Rutgers.
Currently, Rutgers is his clear leader. He stated "they are doing well and getting a lot of in-state players. Me and my cousin, Greg Wannamaker, have been wanting to go to the same school since we were kids and Rutgers would be a great fit". Rutgers has shown interest in him since his freshmen year, when he played for Woodrow Wilson. Robinson has since transferred to Camden Catholic, where he has 32 receptions for 494 yards in games this season.
Another school high on Robinson's list is Iowa. Their success with South Jersey players is a key selling point for him. In particular, there are a number of players from the Camden area who have had a lot of success. Another positive for Robinson is the fact that the Iowa recruiting coach is from the Camden area and coached at Woodrow Wilson. This familiarity with the area has helped to build a good relationship.
As far as a decision, Robinson would still like to take his visits and make a decision on National Signing Day.
