Robinson: Dreams Coming True

Terrence Robinson, one of Texas' top athletes, continues to put up big numbers during his senior campaign. The 5'9, 170-pound athlete has also picked up interest and offers from a host of programs around the nation but believes he is just a few weeks away from making his college decision.

Through 10 games this season, Terrence Robinson has amassed 1,677 yards on 182 carries, a 9.21 yard per carry average. Robinson has also rushed for 22 touchdowns out of the backfield. Additionally, Robinson has caught 16 passes for 343 and 2 touchdowns in leading his Klein Oak High School to a 9-1 record heading into the first round of the playoffs this weekend.

"I worked hard this summer to get ready for the year," Robinson said. "My main thing was not to be complacent and to get better at the little things. I think I did that."

Robinson's speed and performance on the field this season has earned him a host of offers from D-I programs around the country. Robinson believes he has narrowed his offer list down to just three schools, however, and expects to make his decision in the next few weeks. "I would say now my top three are Wake Forest, Oregon and Boston College," he said.

Although Robinson took an unofficial visit to Boston College in July, his only official visits to date have been to Oregon and Wake Forest. "Wake and Oregon, those are my only two official visits as of now," noted Robinson. "Nothing is set up for another official visit. I'll probably make my decision pretty soon also -- within the next week or two. I'm just researching and putting the pieces to the puzzle together. I want to make sure that before I make the decision, I am 100% sure."

According to Robinson, he does not yet have a favorite school in his recruitment. "It was tough narrowing it down but all three impress me," he said. "All had certain things that really stood out. All three of them have a lot of good things to offer a student-athlete. Wake and Boston College have very good academics and all of that. Oregon does too but a different stance. They've got Nike and internships with Nike and sports management. All of them are good football teams, Division I. That's what you dream of when you hit high school so hopefully my dreams come true."

Over the next couple of weeks, Robinson plans to sit down and analyze his school choices before making an official decision. "I would have to say the main thing is that when you have an opportunity to pick where you want to go, you want to go somewhere you feel most comfortable and at home," he noted. "You want to go somewhere where it's easy to get around and feel comfortable. What it is going to boil down to is a family environment and Wake showed that a lot. I want to have a 2nd home away from home."
