Robinson is definitely your hulking middle linebacker who is much more physical than everyone else in high school. Robinson is a big kid, and that size allows him to do some things defensively as the middle linebacker. He can beat offensive linemen and really take them on, and the size differential isn’t that great. He could probably work on technique a bit, but that’s a huge thing to have a kid that big willing to take on blocks and do that dirty work. Mobility wise, Robinson is probably limited, watching him work up and down the line, he’s not the fastest guy, but sometimes you have to give up one thing for another. Robinson isn’t slow by any means, but he doesn’t have the lateral speed that someone like Dakota Allen has. He’s a middle linebacker and I’m sure he’ll own the hell out of that.
Robinson was very productive, ending 2017 with 115 tackles, 1 sack, 3 pass break-ups and 2 forced fumbles. Again, a ton of solid plays, but not a ton of splash plays.
InsideTheRedRaiders’ Jarrett Johnson spoke with Robinson about his commitment:
“Just right when I got there, I got that gut feeling that this was the place for me. It’s where I want to go,” Robinson said. “My family felt the same way. Getting to know the coaches and their families, building a relationship with coach Spav, getting to know all the players, it made me feel at home. Riko, he had a lot to do with it, I went to school with him and all that stuff. Getting to be his teammate in college will be real nice.”
There’s more there, so make sure and check that out.
Robinson is the third commitment of the 2019 class, in addition to long-time commitments Steven Parker and Cameron Cantrell.
