Klein (Texas) Oak is blessed with its share of speed this season with a pair of the state's fastest athletes. Utility man and Texas-commit Hales is a homerun hitter from anywhere on the field with nationally recognized track speed. While he's the Panthers' clean-up hitter, Robinson is a great table-setter.
Robinson, who has been clocked sub-4.4 in the 40-yard dash, burst onto the scene this spring after leading Klein Oak's junior varsity team last season. He was forced to play sub-varsity having transferred from nearby Spring High School before the 2006 season.

"I know the spotlight is on me this year," he said. "I'm so ready for my senior year. I've been thinking about it for a long time."
While he hasn't played a down of varsity football, Robinson has piled up the offers this offseason. Nebraska, Oregon, Houston, TCU, SMU, Tulsa and New Mexico have offered, but a Big East school gets the first visit from the 5-foot-9 athlete.
"I've got some family up east, so it's just worked out nicely that I've been able to set up a visit to Boston College next weekend," he said. "I'm excited about getting up there and all of the coaches really want to win. They are my most recent offer."
Boston College may get the first shot at impressing Robinson, but Oregon, TCU and Nebraska seemed to be his early favorites.
"I'm pretty open right now," he said. "I don't mind going out of state. Other schools that I'd like to hear from are UCLA, Wake Forest, California and Oklahoma."
