Robinson is still looking for a home

Mount San Jacinto WR Chris Robinson (5-8, 165) had for quite some time thought he would need to go the D-2 route in order to play at four-year school, however he recently found out he is fully qualified to play at the D-1 level and the explosive playmaker told JCFootball.com he's willing to wait to see who comes calling...

Robinson prepped at Hemet (Ca.) High School and he enjoyed a solid career there, however he wasn't recruited much, only receiving a walk-on offer with a D-2 program.

"When it came down to it, I just thought I could play at a higher level," Robinson told JCFootball.com. "Mount San Jacinto was close to home and I liked the coaches, so I came here and I'm glad I did because it's been a great experience for me."

As a freshman in 2010, Robinson started the final six games of the season and hauled in 18 receptions for 195 yards and one touchdowns and followed that up in 2011 with a big season as he caught 38 passes for 607 yards and six touchdowns.

"I played both inside and outside," Robinson noted. "It was about half-and-half, but I made most of my plays by catching a six yard pass and then turning it into a 20 or 30-yard gain.

"I like to use my speed and my quickness to make plays. I like getting into open space and helping my team."

On the recruiting front, Robinson hasn't heard from a lot of schools to this point, although he does have an offer from a D-2 school. However, he said he's content to wait and see what else is out there.

"My coaches said a lot of schools need to go through spring ball before they will come after a JC guy," Robinson said. "I have the offers, but I want to wait as long as I can before I decide to do anything.

"I want to play at the highest level I can, so I feel like waiting a while is probably the best thing I can do."

Robinson is a late-qualifier, but said he knew his academics were in order the whole time.

"The Clearinghouse didn't get my final transcripts (from high school) until recently, so it took them a while to actually clear me," Robinson noted. "I just found out the other day that I've been cleared and now I just need to get that information out to schools to see if they are still interested in me."

Wherever Robinson ends up he will have three years to play two once he signs.
