Denver (Colo.) Mullen wide receiver Stephone Robinson has his eye on five schools.
"I really would say my top five would be, Colorado, Florida, K-State, Oregon and Stanford," Robinson said. "I don't have a favorite among them. It is too early right now for that. I want to take my time and see how everything plays out for the schools I am interested in. I want to make the best choice I can for me."
Each of the schools has qualities that make them appealing to Robinson.
"I like the fact that Colorado is close to home," Robinson said. "I know the coaches there too. I think I could fit in real well there. Florida has a great offense. They are always in the top ten in all of the polls, and they have a history of putting receivers in the NFL. My uncle (Thad Swazer) went to K-State. He's had nothing but good things to say about the school. I really like Coach (Greg ) Peterson, and I think I could fit in real well there too. I like the program at Oregon. The offense they run puts the ball all over the field and is fun to watch. I imagine it would be fun to be part of on the field too. And Stanford has a lot to offer academically. Their football is OK too, but the academics are really top-notch."
While Robinson isn't ready to name a favorite, he does know what he is looking for in a school.
"I want to find a place that has good academics. One that has a good athletics program. And one has a good atmosphere. Right now, I'm thinking of a psychology or sociology major. So I'll look at those programs at the schools I visit."
Colorado was the first school to offer Robinson a scholarship, doing so in February.
"It wasn't long after signing day when he got the offer from Colorado," Mullen coach Jay Madden said. "That was the first one. There are a few others that have offered already too. Arizona State, Wyoming and Indiana have offered. But the group that says they will be offering this summer and early fall is always growing. The only two schools that have had some contact with us that haven't indicated an offer will be coming are Texas and Tennessee. Texas is looking for guys that are 6-foot-2, or 6-foot-3. Tennessee, I guess, has a lot of good receivers this year near home, so they'll look there."
