Eagle Lake (Fla.) Lake Region safety Marvin Robinson (6-1, 194) was one of the best-looking juniior prospects at the UnderArmour Combine in Orlando over the weekend.

And he's no secret, with several schools around the country already having offered Robinson, one of the elite prospects nationally in 2010.

"I've got around 11 or 12 offers right now," said Robinson. "My top four right now are North Carolina, Michigan, Ohio State and Florida. Right now, all of them are equal."

Other schools have been showing interest in him, with Boston College, Florida International, UCLA, and Tennessee having offered and Georgia and Alabama with consistent correspondence.

"It really doesn't matter to me where I go, I'm just looking for the best program for me," said Robinson.

Robinson can play either safety spot, and he also plays on the offensive side of the ball.

"I think I'm going to play strong safety in college," said Robinson. "At my high school, I play free, but I think in college, I'll play strong. That's what they're recruiting me as. They also are recruiting me on the offensive side of the ball, as a receiver in the slot. If I had to chose, it would probably be strong safety."

Robinson said he's in no hurry to make his decision, targeting February 2010 as his decision time. "I think I'm going to wait until Signing Day," said Robinson.

As a junior, Robinson ran for seven touchdowns and defensively had three interceptions.

He's a member of the Scout 2010 National 100 and is a four-star prospect.
