Miami Southridge athlete Lamar Robbins has been emerging as a prospect and at 6-foot-3, 175-pounds and having the versatility to play multiple positions it's easy to see why.

"I play wide receiver and both corner and safety, but play more at corner," said Robbins. "I prefer receiver, but like DB too. I've just started playing DB and started developing a passion for it."

"I led the team with 4 interceptions last season and had a lot of pass break-ups," said Robbins. "We play a wing-T, so I didn't have a lot of catches."

On the recruiting front schools have taken notice and recently the defensive back/receiver received his first three offers. 
"Things are going great and I got my first three offers from USF, FIU, and Western Kentucky," said Robbins. "USF came in first and I was ecstatic to get it.  But the other two all came in like the same day."

With the first three offers in Robbins says he's getting a lot of other interests as well.

"I got Louisville showing interest, also Florida, UCLA, FSU, Georgia, Miami and Michigan State." Robbins said.

Robbins versatility is evident as schools are offering him at multiple positions.

"WKU and FIU said they're recruiting me as an athlete," said Robbins. "USF said they're recruiting me as a defensive back and as an athlete."

Robbins is being recruited by South Florida coach Vernon Hargreaves.

"Coach Hargreaves was talking to me for a bit and then offered me," said Robbins. "He's a real cool guy and said I'll fit in real well with their program. He also told a few things about them and that with me being from Miami, the weather and climate won't be a big change for me, and that I'd like it there.

Robbins admits that he doesn't know a lot about the Bulls, but is starting too.

"I don't know a ton about USF, except that they're a BSC school, they throw a lot and have a good defense," said Robbins. "If I play DB or receiver they'll be able to help me out."

With it being early in the process, Robbins said he isn't ready to name a short list of favorites just yet.

"I can't really single out any favorites just yet, because I just got the offers and haven't seen the schools yet," said Robbins. "I want to keep an open mind and see what other offers I get before I start narrowing things down."

He may not have a favorite, but Robbins does know what factors he's looking at the most when he does choose a school.

"Well I basically want to go in and work hard and play my first year," said Robbins. "So wherever I can get on the field quickest is most important, whether it be at receiver or at DB. I'd like to win a national championship, but that's not most important. If I win a bowl game then that be just as fun for me."

The Southridge standout plans on visiting USF and as many schools as he can this upcoming spring.

"I'm going to try and visit USF them this spring for one of their practices or spring games," said Robbins. "I'm going to try and see most of them, especially the Florida schools.
