Florida State Commit Has USF Connections

Miami Northwestern senior athlete JoJo Robinson's season has came to an end and the Florida State commit is set to visit a handful of schools, including the South Florida Bulls.

Miami Northwestern athlete JoJo Robinson would much rather be on the gridiron battling it out throughout the month of November, but the 6-foot-0, 180-pound wide receiver and his team failed to make the playoffs after finishing an even 5-5 this season.

"This year we came up short," Robinson said. "We didn't make the playoffs and we had a disappointing season, but that's what God had planed for us. Individually, I had a regular season. Not from my performance - just the lack of getting the ball, but I'm not selfish I had my time so I continued to block and do whatever I had to do on offense and defense to help me other teammates and team be successful."

After issuing a pledge to coach Jimbo Fisher and the Florida State Seminoles last summer, Robinson stated he was a 'soft' commit in recent months and planned to visit several schools.

One school the Miami Northwestern standout plans to visit and has connections to is the South Florida Bulls, who's recruiting him as a wide receiver.

"I'm going to USF on Dec. 13," Robinson said. "I'm being recruited by coach Telly Lockette and they're a young team that has a lot of opportunity for me to come in and play as a true freshman. One of my teammates from high school, Darius Tice, is apart of their program and their quarterback commit Quinton Flowers is one of my close friends so that influences me some also."

Asides from the Bulls, Scout.com's 4-star cornerback prospect has a trio of schools he's set to checkout.

"I have a visit set up to Arkansas on Jan. 24, but I plan on visiting LSU and USC also."

With Signing Day a little over two months away, Robinson plans to finalize his decision on that exact day. Now heading into the final stage of his recruitment, how solid is Robinson's commitment to the Seminoles?

"I'm not sure. Like 50 percent."
