Robinson adds fourth offer

Gerald Robinson has added his fourth offer from Syracuse this week. The three-star corner discusses his interest in the Orange, a possible visit and a time frame for his final decision inside.

Hialeah (Fla.) Champagnat Catholic cornerback Gerald Robinson Jr. picked up his fourth offer on Monday. The Syracuse Orange extended a scholarship offer to the three-star prospect.

"They contacted my coach and told him," Robinson said. "I'm supposed to talk to them soon about everything. They said they want to talk to me. They want to let me know about the school and everything."

This was the first contact Robinson received from Syracuse. Despite that, he already knows some things about the school and is impressed with the program.

"It's a big school," Robinson said. "It's an up and coming program. They have a great DB coach (Fred Reed) who would be great to learn from."

Defensive backs coach Fred Reed has experience in the NFL as an assistant for the Detroit Lions for two seasons. Knowing what it takes at the professional level is not lost on Robinson, who would relish the opportunity to learn from someone with that experience.

"It would be good," Robinson said. "I just want that chance to make it to that point."

Robinson plans on hearing what the Orange have to offer. A visit could be in the works as well.

"I'm giving them a serious look," Robinson said. "I want to visit in the spring or summer. I don't have any favorites right now, but Syracuse is right up there, where I want them to be."

When Robinson finds that landing spot, he knows what he's looking for in the place he will call home for the next few years.

"I want a school that will help me graduate," Robinson said. "I want a shot at playing and that can get me ready to go to the (NFL) Draft. I want to study business or music. I'm thinking about music."

An early decision is also likely for the 5-foot-11 corner, who could make his verbal pledge known as early as this summer.

"I want to announce it in the middle of my 7-on-7 season," Robinson said.

Despite being from Hialeah, Robinson does not know 2014 Syracuse signee Alin Edouard. He has played against him in 7-on-7 competition, however.
