Robbins with three more offers

3/9/2012

Kevin Robbins, Jr. has a trio of new scholarship offers to consider.

The prospect from Forestville (Md.) Bishop McNamara picked up offers from West Virginia, Boston College and Georgia Tech this week.

Robbins will visit Morgantown to inspect the Mountaineers on March. 17.

“They have a great program,” he said. “They offered me as an athlete so I guess they want to evaluate me at multiple positions.”

Robbins said he has no preference as to what position he might play in college. Defensively, the 6-foot-4, 225-pound junior could play outside linebacker or defensive end. Offensively, he could possibly play tight end.

Robbins played about 80-percent of his defensive snaps at end and the remainder at linebacker. He registered seven sacks and 40 tackles. As a starting tight end, he caught 20 passes for 430 yards and five touchdowns. West Virginia seems open to all possibilities.

“I'm looking forward to going there and meeting the coaching staff,” he said. “They just have a high speed defense. I like watching them play. Seems like they have great coaches."

Robbins said Boston College has an intriguing defense as well. The Golden Eagles also have a growing relationship with assistant Al Washington and Robbins in their favor. Washington assists with the defensive line and special teams.

“I liked him a lot,” Robbins said. “He was a real high energy. He had a lot of great things to say about me.”

Robbins said he's not sure when he'll visit BC, but hopes to do so this month.

Yet another big city can also expect a visit from Robbins thanks to his offer from the Yellow Jackets.

“I like them a lot,” Robbins said. “I like the Atlanta area. It's another great opportunity for me.”

Distance from home, Robbins said, isn't a concern.

“I'm looking at the program before the location,” he said.
