UCLA To Get Visit from Big OL

<b>George "Duke" Robinson</b> is a mammoth 6-6, 335-pounder from Georgia, who says he currently has four favorite schools -- outside of his home state...

One of the South's premier offensive linemen is Atlanta (Ga.) Washington tackle George "Duke" Robinson, 6-5, 335.

The mammoth tackle has gotten scholarship offers from all over the country, but recently stated that while he still likes the hometown schools (Georgia and Georgia Tech), he is currently concentrating on four others.

"I've got offers from Georgia, Florida, Auburn, Oklahoma, UCLA, Michigan, Mississippi State, Miami, LSU and South Carolina, Georgia Tech, Clemson, Nebraska and Arkansas."

The four schools that stand out are also in line to receive a visit from Robinson. He said, "Right now, sir, those schools are Oklahoma, Arkansas, Nebraska and UCLA."

So why those four, when there is a national power, who has offered, is in your own backyard? "I have a good relationship with the coaches at those four schools. I feel comfortable with them."

UCLA assistant and running back coach Eric Bieniemy is handling the Robinson recruitment.

Robinson said recruiting will probably take it pretty slowly in recruiting for a while, as Washington has started their fall practice and starts preseason games this weekend, with the season opener just two weeks away. "It's real good being back out there. We're looking good for this season."

With the season his focus, Robinson said he is no rush to make a commitment, and will probably not make one until after his season. "I want to take all of my official trips and then after I visit the schools, which will be after the season, I'll decide."

With all four schools outside of Georgia, Robinson said it's about 50-50 on what he's hearing from family. He said, "Half of them are putting pressure on me to stay close, the other want it to be up to me."

He has a 2.8 GPA and will take the SAT in the fall.
