Local Safety is One to Watch

A local linebacker/safety prospect, 6-1, 185-pound Bruce Robinson from Manhattan Beach (Calif.) Mira Costa, is getting interest from the Pac-10, Mountain West and WAC, but says one Pac-10er is his current favorite...

Manhattan Beach (Calif.) Mira Costa linebacker Bruce Robinson (6-1, 185) has not received a scholarship offer yet, but has been getting a decent amount of interest from a handful of schools.

"Oregon, UNLV, Nevada, UCLA and USC are some of the schools I'm hearing from," said Robinson. "Oregon is my favorite. I'm getting a lot of handwritten love from them. UCLA and USC send me stuff but I haven't gotten a whole lot from them."

Robinson said he plays linebacker, but that in college he thought a rover/safety position or possibly a receiver could be where he plays.

"I think with my size I am fit to play in the secondary," said Robinson. "Most of the schools said they want to watch some of my senior film before they offer me. I did good at the camps, but they want to see some more of me."

Robinson kept himself busy this spring, going to the Nike Camp at Stanford, the Scout.com Combine at El Camino College and he may also go to the USC camp this summer.

"I did good at the camps. For as little time as we had at the camps in the 1-on-1s, I think I showed what I could do," Robinson said. "I clocked a 4.8 and I did a 32 on the vertical, which I think was okay."

With the Ducks being Robinson's favorite, an offer could end things quick for him. "I'd like to hear more from the two local schools, but if Oregon offered, I don't think I would turn it down. I really like them, and they seem to like me," said Robinson. "I'd like to take some visits and see all the schools I'm looking at and have something to compare to."

As a junior, Robinson tallied 103 tackles, 78 solo, and also added 35 catches for 608 yards and five touchdowns.

Academically, Robinson has a 2.7 GPA and will take the SAT in the fall.
