"Coach Neuheisel was really excited," Robin told Dawgman.com. "He said that he saw my film last Thursday and called me on Thursday night and said that I'm someone they want to add to their team and that he won't stop until I'm wearing a Husky uniform."
Kezirian runs a 5.0 40, benches 355 pounds and has a 25-inch vertical jump to his credit. He plays both right tackle and nose guard, but prefers offense. "I like offense better," he said. "I just started defense this year, and I've been playing offense all four years. I just like playing it and getting better each year. It's fun making a block and watching the running back score or protecting the quarterback. It's nice knowing they need you in there."
And his best move? "I think I'm good at knowing when my block is done on the line and getting downfield and making more blocks. I think that's something I do really well," he said.
College coaches have been impressed with Kezirian's play. "They like my balance and I can pull and trap well," he said. "I'm really aggressive past the line of scrimmage and can go out and make blocks."
The colleges in question would be Fresno State, Washington, Stanford, Oregon and Oregon State. Robin has offers from the Bulldogs and Huskies and will be tripping to his hometown school on December 7th and Seattle on December 14th.
The talk turns back to Neuheisel's phone call. "It was a really good feeling," said Robin when Washington's head coached offered him a full scholarship. "Up until then it was just Fresno State, so I was wondering if any other schools were going to like me and my film, and to have him react so fast it made me feel really good. I thanked him and told him that I really appreciated it. He told me that he wants to get me on a plane for a trip and I guess things are going to go from there."
Robin's parents are behind their son 100 percent of the way. "They aren't putting any pressure on me," he said. "They're just excited that I'm being recruited by some good schools and they want me to go where I'm going to be happy."
Kezirian said that he'll probably make his formal decision in January. There will be a few big factors that will weigh heavy on Robin's mind as he mulls over the possibilities. "The area, where I'm going to play," he said. "I like where it's cool. And the academics, of course. That's the most important, then athletics, then location."
