Robinson Stars on Both Sides

San Diego (Calif.) Lincoln athlete Tyrell Robinson is an elite talent and UCLA is still on he and his twin brother's short list...

Tyrell Robinson and his twin brother Tyree Robinson were both better known as basketball players until this past spring. After a few standout performances at the B2G Elite 11 Camp and the USC Rising Stars Camp, it became apparent that football might actually be their meal ticket.

Tyrell worked out at linebacker during Saturday's pool play round and then moved to receiver/tight end on Sunday and excelled both days. He has very good size at 6-4, 205 pounds and is very athletic. He covers a lot of ground, has excellent closing speed and plays with a great motor.

At receiver, Robinson made an immediate impact and made several tough catches over the middle and not surprisingly, was excellent in jump ball situations.

"This event was lovely, I really enjoyed myself," Robinson said. "The hospitality was great, the competition was great, you had the best of the best out here from all over the country so I'm really glad I was selected for this."

On the recruiting front, Robinson said he and his twin brother Tyree have 10 schools on their list and are a definite package deal.

"Schools are recruiting me at outside linebacker and my brother as an athlete," Robinson said. "They like me being able to rush the passer but also being able to drop in coverage and make plays on the outside. Tyree is a freak at receiver, safety and corner, he can do it all. Unfortunately, he fractured his foot and is out for three more weeks but he'll be ready to go by the season.

"Right now, we still have a pretty big list of schools and we both want to play football and basketball in college. The schools we like are Oregon, Washington, USC, Missouri, Notre Dame, Miami, San Diego State, UCLA, Arizona State and there's one more I'm forgetting. We plan to cut it to five, take our official visits and then we'll be ready to make a decision."
