The offers have started to pour in recently for talented Memphis, Tenn., Wooddale junior running back Jovon Robinson. This week, a Southeastern Conference school became the latest to pull the trigger.
"Georgia offered me a couple days ago," Robinson told Rivals.com on Friday. "I was actually kind of surprised. I wasn't hearing from them much."
By offering Robinson, the Bulldogs join Arkansas, Arkansas State, Cincinnati, Memphis and Mississippi State. Memphis is the school that is pursuing him the hardest, Robinson said.
Who might be next to offer?
"Maybe Tennessee," Robinson speculated. "They've talked to me and come by my school."
The 6-foot-1, 218-pound Robinson, who has both speed and strength, rushed for 2,200 yards and 36 touchdowns last season.
"I'm a lot like Walter Payton … and Barry Sanders," he said.
"He's a big-time player," added outgoing Wooddale coach Lynord Crutchfield. "He is so elusive as a runner and powerful as a runner. And he has great vision, too."
Thus far, Robinson has made 2011 unofficial visits to Ole Miss and Memphis. He has no other trips scheduled at the moment.
Asked if he had a leader or even a top five, Robinson replied, "No sir, not yet."
