Devin Robinson has that rare combination of size and speed that coaches are always looking for. He's 6-foot-3, 220 pounds and has 4.49 forty speed. As a junior he ran for 999 yards on just 72 carries for an average of almost 14 yards a carry. His speed is not exaggerated; as a sophomore he qualified for the state 400, 100 and 4x100 and placed eighth in the state in the 100.
Robinson participated Vanderbilt's junior and also attended three Commodore football games during the 2009 regular season. Robinson liked what he saw in Vanderbilt, "The campus is real nice and most of it is all new. Everybody there makes you feel at home." Commodore offensive line coach Robbie Caldwell is recruiting Robinson.
Recently Troy and Arkansas State joined Middle Tennessee, UAB, South Alabama, Southern Miss as schools that have already extended offers to Alabama prep star.
An offer Mississippi State could be coming soon according to Robinson, "I talked to Mississippi State yesterday. They would offer me out in the open right now but they want to keep me under the radar." Robinson likes the idea of going to MSU; he says it's a nice school and he has family in Mississippi. He plans to camp in Starkville in June or July.
Robinson plans a busy summer and already has camps scheduled at Auburn, Ole Miss, UAB, Southern Miss, Stanford, Duke, Middle Tennessee in addition to those already mentioned above.
Robinson, who earned all-region and all-county honors a junior, is solid in the classroom as well. He's got a 3.2 GPA and scored a qualifying 19 on the ACT but plans to re-take that test in July in an effort to improve his score.
