Talented 2014 offensive linemen Cameron Robinson (Monroe, La./Ouachita Parish) did not attend Texas’ camp on Sunday, but was able to make it down to Austin for an unofficial visit on Saturday. And the Longhorns did nothing but impress him.
“It was pretty much what I was expecting,” he said. “I went in with high expectations and they filled them for the most part. It was everything that I expected.”
Robinson, who is 6-foot-6 and 325 pounds, came in with the Longhorns among his top three schools alongside Alabama and LSU. A big reason for that was the relationship he has already formed with offensive line coach Stacy Searels, which is something that grew stronger on Saturday.
“I was hoping to form a better relationship with Coach Searels, and I got to see the facilities for the first time and I liked it a lot,” said Robinson, who was joined by teammate, 2014 receiver Cameron Sims. “They have some real friendly and enjoyable people down there. I liked it a lot.
“[Searels] has a really nice family. I met his wife and his daughter. I was just able to spend more time with him. I was able to form a better relationship with him. I like him a lot.”
Searels must think the same of Robinson.
“Pretty much Coach Searels told me that he wanted me at the University of Texas,” he said. “They’ve already verbally offered me. He told me to call him sometime so I’ll do that.”
Robinson spoke with Mack Brown briefly. The two were suppose to reconvene in Brown’s office on Saturday but Robinson couldn’t because he had to make his way to LSU’s camp, which will take place tomorrow.
Robinson already has offers from both the Tigers and Crimson Tide and will surely get one in February when Texas begins handing out scholarships to the next class. He also reports offers from Oklahoma, Arkansas, Mississippi State, TCU, Michigan and Washington.
