Jesse Robinson has offers, taking time

8/9/2012



Three-star offensive lineman Jesse Robinson (Hurst, Texas/L.D. Bell) has his pick of colleges, but the 6-foot-6, 271-pound tackle said he will continue to take his time with the recruiting process.

Robinson has offers from Kansas State, Texas Tech, Arkansas State and Texas State, among others. Robinson, however, said he doesn’t have a timetable on when he will announce. He added that he was wide open with the process and was unsure if the right school had currently offered him.

“I’ve got a few that I’ve narrowed down to,” Robinson said, “but right now, nothing is set. I’m just waiting around to see what else I can get. Whenever I feel it’s time, that’s when I’ll make my decision.

“The biggest thing I’m looking for is an offensive line coach who I can learn lot from. I want to have a good program all around and be with guys where I can go out and win games and championships with.”

Whichever school Robinson commits to will get a versatile lineman who has played all three positions on the line. He was a center and a deep snapper his freshman season, and he played guard his sophomore year. Junior year, he was moved to tackle, where he is expected to play in college. Robinson also has spent time on the defensive line.

Kansas State and Arkansas State were the first schools to offer Robinson, who has attended summer camps hosted by Oklahoma State, Oklahoma, TCU and Baylor. Robinson, additionally, is working on setting up official visits but has made unofficial visits to TCU, North Texas, Oklahoma and Oklahoma State. He hopes to visit Texas Tech soon.
