No. 18 WR Takes Next Step With UCLA

Nov. 24 -- A trio of suitors, including UCLA and two hailing out of the Southeastern Conference, have obtained official visit dates from the nation's 127th-ranked player overall...

Schools representing the SEC and Pac-12 have secured official visit dates with James Robinson, an Under Armour All-American and the nation's 18th-ranked wide receiver out of Lakeland (Fla.) High.

"UCLA on Jan. 14-15, Alabama Jan. 21-22, Ole Miss Jan. 28-29," said Will Bahler, Robinson's position coach on the prep level.

"Oklahoma is still trying to coordinate a date, and Florida is trying to get back into the picture."

Robinson's visit with Hugh Freeze and the Rebels has been locked in for quite sometime, while the Bruins and Crimson Tide recently took the necessary steps in order to finalize everything with the Scout 300 prospect.

With that being said, what's it going to take for that one lucky school to detach themselves from the countless amount of additional suitors that have dished out offers to Robinson?

"He's a pretty smart kid," Bahler told Scout. "He's going to look at depth charts and past signing classes. It's being comfortable with the coaches.

"Location isn't a problem, so kind of just feeling where he is most wanted. He knows he will compete wherever he goes."

As always, stay tuned to Scout.
