Given the recent wave of linebacker commits for Miami, it's no surprise that rumors have been flying that Rivals100 linebacker Marcus Robinson of Homestead (Fla.) had decided to join the Canes' class and commit as well.
In a Sunday afternoon interview with Rivals.com, Robinson addressed those rumors.
"I haven't committed," Robinson said. "Nothing is really going on with recruiting. Right now, everybody is in the picture because I don't even have a top five."

The 6-foot-2, 210-pounder did mention that he plans to take some official visits this fall as he narrows down his list of schools.
"I am going to take some visits by the fall," he said."Right now, I really want to visit USC. I also like LSU, Florida, Florida State, Central Florida and Michigan as well as Miami."
Robinson maintains constant contact with his Hurricanes recruiter, Michael Barrow, who also is from Homestead.
"I talk to coach Barrow all the time," he said. "I am interested in Miami. I have just been there for the camps, that's it."
Robinson, who plays well in space and is a dominant pass rusher when he puts his hand down, has an idea about how he'd liked to be used in college.
"I want to play outside linebacker on first and second down," he said. "On third down, I want to go down and rush the passer."
Recently, he had an excellent showing at the Rutgers University 7-on-7 camp.
"I think I did good there," he said. "I did well in pass coverage."
This summer, Robinson has also been training hard to prepare for the forthcoming season.
"I've gotten faster and stronger," he said." I haven't run the 40 recently, but I had 330 bench press max last time I did it."
Robinson is the nation's fourth-ranked outside linebacker prospect. He also is the No. 9 overall prospect in the state of Florida and the No. 67 overall prospect in America according to Rivals.com.
