Robinson considering two more visits

Scotland, Pa. athlete has officially visited Virginia and Wisconsin; will wait to make decision.

Greg Robinson, a 6-foot-3, 205-pound class of 2006 prospect at the Scotland School in Scotland, Pa., expects to take official visits to Penn State and Connecticut before making his college decision.

Robinson has already made official trips to Virginia (Dec. 2) and Wisconsin (Dec. 9). A planned trip to Rutgers for this weekend was cancelled due to a scheduling confusion and might not be made up.

Robinson was impressed with the Cavaliers and Badgers but said he is not ready to name a favorite.

"It's too early right now," he said.

When asked what he is looking for in a school, Robinson replied: "There's nothing in particular I am just trying to see what will be best for me."

Robinson will take an official visit to Connecticut next month and expects to schedule one for Penn State as well. The Huskies are recruiting him as an outside linebacker, while PSU and Virginia are looking at him as an outside linebacker or strong safety. Wisconsin and Rutgers, Robinson said, want him as an athlete, which could encompass outside linebacker, safety, wide receiver or running back. He played quarterback, wide receiver, defensive end and safety for the Scotland School this fall.

Last year Robinson started at defensive end opposite Jarmal Ruffin, who signed with Wisconsin last February as an athlete and has ended up playing wide receiver. Ruffin was Robinson's host at Wisconsin last weekend.

What did Robinson think of his UW visit?

"It was real nice," he said. "I liked the whole thing. Like when I thought of Wisconsin before I thought of some big old country place, but it was nice.

"It was rural, but it was more than I expected. It was better than I expected."

"The people, they were nice. I thought they would be nice, but they were a lot nicer than I thought. They were friendly."

Robinson said he liked Virginia a lot. How would he compare the two trips he has taken?

"They were different, but they were both nice," Robinson said. "I fit into both of their systems real nice. I like different things for both of them.

"For Virginia I like, like, it's real. Like when I went it wasn't like a recruiting week. It was, I was there, I was a football player for the weekend. It wasn't like they were trying to pull out all of the stops. I was there.

"Like Wisconsin, the thing that stood out (was) the strength and conditioning program. I liked that a lot."
