With college coaches watching him go through a spring practice, Deerfield Beach (FL) defensive back Aaron Robinson knew a good performance might net him some more scholarship choices.
“My practice today I thought was all right,” said Robinson. “Not the best, but it was a pretty decent practice.”
Defensive line coach Inoke Breckterfield is leading the Badgers’ recruitment, and Robinson said Breckterfield dropped off a pamphlet of the school and his business card. He didn’t know which coach stop from Rutgers, but the 6-1, 185-pound receiver felt he gave them both a glimpse of his skill set.
“(I showed) a lot of footwork, coverage skills (press and off coverage) and adapting to different schemes like zone,” he said. “I showed that I am where I am supposed to be.”
Although not knowing much about either school at this point, Robinson said he has had a passing relationship with former Wisconsin cornerback Antonio Fenelus, who has spent time at his school coaching in the offseason.
“He was helping coach me up,” said Robinson.
“There’s a lot of interest coming my way,” he said.
After missing all of his junior season with a broken collarbone, the two Big Ten offers has given Robinson a renewed sense of motivation.
“I’m very excited,” said Robinson. “Actually it’s very exciting to get offers from those two schools. I put forth my best foot in practice and everything I do with the game and the classroom. It’s helped me become a better person by working hard.”
