Elite DB/WR prospect plans official visit to Vandy

One of the nation's elite defensive back / wide receiver prospects says he plans to take the first of his five planned official visits to Vanderbilt in October.

Much-coveted defensive back / wide receiver prospect Brandon Robinson of The Breck School in Minneapolis, Minn., will make the first of his five official visits to Vanderbilt in October, according to a report in The Bootleg, a publication that covers Stanford athletics. Robinson, 6-0, 185, is ranked the No. 13 defensive back prospect in the nation by The Insiders.

Robinson said he plans to visit the Vanderbilt campus the weekend of Oct. 18, the weekend of the Commodores' home game vs. Georgia. Robinson says he also has definite plans to visit Boston College and Stanford, with UCLA and Colorado the most likely schools to get his final two visits.

Robinson has reportedly had a scholarship offer on the table from the Commodores since at least early summer. Word of Robinson's visit is big news for the Vanderbilt coaching staff, which also has offered Robinson's teammate, quarterback Liam O'Hagan (6-2, 205).

Through three games in 2003, Robinson has scored nine touchdowns on 17 catches for 420 yards, according to The Bootleg. Robinson, who also plays defensive back and might project as a DB in college, has 15 tackles, 2 interceptions, and has not allowed a pass to be completed against him in three games. In addition to his 4.4 speed in the 40, Robinson is also a placekicker.

Breck is off to a good start at 3-0.
