Indianapolis (Ind.) Warren Central receiver Adrien Robinson has the type of physical tools college coaches are looking for today from a receiver. The 6-foot-5, 225-pound receiver is a tough and physical route-runner that has the ability to go over the middle and make the big play.
And that's why he's already picked up two scholarship offers – from Louisville and Indiana.
"Louisville and Indiana have offered me, and then Michigan and Ohio State are sending me mail along with pretty much the rest of the Big 10 and Ole Miss," he said. "I've been getting hand-written stuff from Ohio State and Michigan.
"Notre Dame invited me to their camp and West Virginia invited me to the one it is having. I won't be able to do anything until the summer, but I plan to go to some camps then."
Robinson thinks his size allows him to create match-up problems with opponents.
"I'm bigger than all the people who try to defend me," he said. "I'm just a stronger all-around player than the people I go up against. My route running needs to get sharper, but I make the catches when the ball is thrown to me."
Robinson is described by his coach as a freak of nature.
"He is a freak of nature," Warren Central coach Kevin Wright said. "He has a 36-inch vertical, and when he was a freshman he ran a 11.0-flat in the 100-meter dash. Indiana and Louisville have already offered and Michigan has shown interest. I think they're going to be next to offer."
That offer would be appealing, Robinson said. But he's not ready to commit yet, and has a few things the perfect school will have.
"I want to go to a place I can play and fit in," he said. "I'm going to take my time in my decision. I'll wait because someone else might offer me, and I don't want to have to re-think my decision after I make it."
According to Robinson, he's going to look toward his parents for guidance and that's all right because they are very important people in his life.
"They do so much more for me," Robinson said. "Them and coach Wright mean so much to me. Coach put my name out there for a lot of colleges to see me. If he hadn't I wouldn't be getting looked at as much as I am right now.
"And I owe everything to my family."
Robinson is spending a lot of time on the basketball court now. His team is 15-5 and has a tough sectional that starts late this week.
"We're going to do okay, though," he said.
