Marcus Robinson, a tenacious OLB/DE prospect from Homestead HS in Florida,
has been getting a ton of attention this spring. The 6'3 220 lb specimen is
coveted not only for his size and speed, but for his demeanor and approach to
the game. While he has offers from some of the best programs in the country,
he was willing to share his top 5 at this time.
Marcus Robinson's recruitment has exploded. And deservedly so. He has one of the best first steps in the South. He was extremely productive on the football field. His style of play has his Head Coach, Coach McCray saying he is the best he has had at Homestead.
We caught up with Marcus tonight and this is what he said about the recruiting process. "I cannot believe in how many schools are interested in me. I have moved to the OLB. Last year I played DE. I feel like I am adjusting well. I feel like I am tackling better now than I ever have. I think I am also getting a much better feel for the game".
At this time, Robinson does not have a top 5. But some of the schools that are standing out to him include Miami, Florida State, Florida, USC, and Rutgers, all of which have offered written scholarships.
Miami- "I like Coach Barrow a lot. He is my boy. He was my coach last year in high school".
Florida State- "I have always liked Florida State growing up. They play very aggressive and fast football. Plus, they have a teammate of mine from last year, Maurice Harris going up there".
USC- "Coach Carroll came by to school. Obviously, it is an honor to be recruited by that program. They are a place I am very interested in and would love to check out. I am trying to camp there this summer."
Rutgers- "I am a big fan of Eric Foster. I love watching him play. Plus I have a good relationship with Jameil Farrington, who was a teammate of mine last year. Coach Demo is a real cool cat. I want to see if I can camp there this summer as well."
Florida- "Being from the state of Florida, you have to be impressed with the way they have recruited and how they play the game. To me, how can you not consider the national champions".
