Sunshine State CB names top four
The 5'10", 180 pound Robinson, who runs a 4.5 second forty yard dash, put together a strong junior season last fall, totaling 45 tackle and 3 interceptions on defense. He also added 18 catches for 225 yards and 2 touchdowns on offense.
Schools around the southeast have taken notice of Robinson's talents, and he's already garnered nine scholarship offers, including tenders from South Carolina, Tennessee, Kentucky, Ole Miss, Purdue, Indiana, South Florida, Central Florida and Troy. He believes that Auburn and Minnesota may be close to offering as well.
While his recruitment is just beginning to heat up, Robinson says that four team have begun to emerge as the early frontrunners for his services.
"Because I just recently visited UCF, they're standing out. USF stands out. I like South Carolina as well as Indiana," said Robinson.
The athletic Sunshine State product described what intrigues him about each of his four favorite schools.
Central Florida - "I love the campus and the coaches. I like how they run practice. I really love them."
South Florida - "I could play early there, and that's a big thing. It's close to home too."
South Carolina - "I just talked with Coach (Robert) Gillespie, and he was telling me all about the program and how I could fit in right away and play early. That's a major part of what I'll be looking at when I make my decision. I'm real familiar with them, especially with Coach Spurrier moving there. I've kept up with them because I used to like the Gators and their style of offense. I like them a lot."
Indiana - "They're recruiting me as an offensive player, and I really enjoy having the ball in my hands. That's a big reason why they're up there."
Robinson initially thought that he'd try to knock his decision out of the way before his senior season, but he's now decided to take his time and evaluate all of his options.
"At first I thought I'd make my decision before my senior year, but looking into it I feel like I'm going to wait until after football season," he said. "I'll be looking for a good academic program, as well as (the opportunity) for me to play early. That's going to play a big role in my decision. Ultimately, I'd like to stay close to home too."
Robinson, who described himself as a player who "loves to make plays," plans to take all five official visits to out of state schools, including a trip to South Carolina over the summer.
