Robinson makes plans for UT summer camp


Shreveport (La.) Woodlawn defensive tackle Chris Robinson has not heard from Texas since his plans to attend the Longhorns’ junior day on Saturday fell through.

Robinson, a teammate of 2012 Texas’ commitment Torshiro Davis, was unable to make it to Austin because of car trouble. He did say he would try and make it down to Austin for a Texas summer camp.

The Longhorns currently have one defensive tackle commitment in A'Shawn Robinson (Fort Worth, Texas/Arlington Heights), and will likely only take one more. Texas already has an offer out to Justin Manning (Dallas/Kimball) and is further evaluating players like Vincent Taylor (San Antonio Texas/Madison) and former commitment Quincy Russell (San Antonio, Texas/Sam Houston/Trinity Valley Junior College).

So Robinson (6-foot-2, 260 pounds) likely faces an uphill battle to receive and offer. He’ll try to make up some ground by hopefully attending a summer camp at Texas.

Robinson said he hasn’t spoken to Davis about Texas but does like “the environment and the way their coaches talk to the players.”

He currently has an offer from Mississippi State, and has junior day invites from the Bulldogs and Louisiana-Lafayette.

Robinson said he’d be in Houston this weekend for the Nike Combine.
