Tyrese Robinson Talks UCLA, Baylor Offers

Jul. 6 -- Tyrese Robinson, the No. 2 offensive guard in Texas' 2017 class, tells Scout two recent Power Five conference offers...

The spring brought Tyrese Robinson some impressive offers. That big start to his recruitment has carried over to the summer.

The four-star offensive guard, who's ranked No. 142 overall in the initial 2017 Scout 300, reported his latest offers earlier this week from Baylor and UCLA. Those schools join programs such as Arkansas, Auburn, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Ole Miss, and Texas, among others, on his double-digit offer list.

Robinson, who said he has camped with Alabama and Oklahoma State, said the UCLA offer came from offensive line coach Adrian Klemm.

"He was very pleased with my (sophomore) season," Robinson said, "and he really enjoyed watching my highlight tape."

Robinson plays right tackle for McKinney (Texas) Boyd, but projects as an offensive guard.

"I know that UCLA has a great coaching staff," Robinson said. "Beautiful campus and a really nice facility."

As for Baylor, Robinson said the offer came from linebackers coach Jim Gush.

"He likes my film," Robinson said, "and also said I was really physical and tough."

Those are the hallmarks of Robinson's game. He's a tenacious run-game mauler with the athleticism to chase targets at the second level.

There are some similarities in Robinson's game to 2016 four-star offensive guard Chris Owens, an Alabama commit who also played right tackle during the 2014 season.

"I feel like Baylor football is heading the right way to win a national championship," Robinson said, "with the amazing coaches and players they have."

In addition to his June camps with Alabama and Oklahoma State, Robinson said he plans to attend the July 18 "Under The Lights" Camp hosted by Texas.

"And while I'm out that way, I'm going to try to visit A&M," Robinson added.

As a sophomore, Robinson played a key role blocking for 1,600-yard rusher Dedrick Scrivens, who will join Oklahoma State's team as a preferred walk-on. Robinson helped his team to an 8-4 record and second-round postseason appearance in Texas' second-largest of 10 playoff divisions before falling to loaded back-to-back Class 6A Division champion Cedar Hill.
