LSU adds 2013 DB Robinson

July, 31, 2012
LSU added its 22nd commitment of the 2013 recruiting class Tuesday when Rashard Robinson (Pompano Beach, Fla./Ely), a three-star cornerback from committed.

Robinson gave LSU its third cornerback and fifth defensive back of the class. He also continues a line of Ely players to LSU that includes 2011 first-round NFL draft pick Patrick Peterson, also a cornerback, and his younger brother, incoming freshman Avery Johnson.

Robinson, a tall (6-foot-2) and slender (160-pound) corner, was high on LSU's wish list throughout the recruiting process. He impressed with a 4.33 40-yard dash (hand-timed) at the LSU camp in July and many thought he would commit there. He did not, but returned to Baton Rouge Tuesday with his parents, where he committed.

Robinson also had offers from Arkansas, Florida State and Miami, among others.
