Robinson Lands UCLA Offer

Feb. 20 -- There isn't a hotter linebacker recruit out West or nationally for that matter, than Santa Ana (Calif.) Mater Dei's Curtis Robinson. The athlete picked up three offers in the last two days including one from the national champs...

Curtis Robinson is an ideal weakside 'backer prospect with safety athleticism but the frame and toughness to play in the box. He's all of 6-2, pushing 6-3 and a solid 215 pounds but it's his ability to run, cover and hit that sets him apart from other linebackers.

On Wednesday, Robinson took a visit to UCLA and landed a long awaited offer from the Bruins.

"I spent about three hours on campus and it was a great experience," Robinson said. "My mom went to UCLA and teaches Spanish there so she was really excited for me as well. I took a tour of the campus but the main thing was just hanging out with the coaches and getting to know them.

"I talked a lot with Coach Mora and he's the one who offered me. He's a good guy and a real good coach. I also talked with Scott White a lot and he's awesome. They talked about my role and how I would fit in and I can tell they really want me. I've been to UCLA before but it was a great feeling to get that offer and I'm definitely giving UCLA a hard look."

Wisconsin also offered Robinson on Wednesday and Ohio State offered earlier today.

"I never pictured this happening for me, not even a month ago," Robinson said. "I wish I could go and visit all these schools over the spring and summer but I'll only be able to take one or two out of state visits.

"The rest I'll wait and take my official visits. I will try and get out to Stanford in the spring since that's not too far but I'm not sure what other schools I'll visit right now. I'm just excited about where things are going and looking forward to playing the process out."
