Junior LB already blowing up
Looking for another top junior in the Lone Star state, then make sure you stop at Plano (Texas) East where linebacker/defensive end Keenan Robinson is the definite force on defense for the Metroplex team.
At 6-foot-3, 215 pounds, Robinson is definitely one to watch. Flying to the ball is one thing, but when Robinson gets there he makes a big hit for his team. It's early, but the mail is already flooding in at a rapid pace.
"Oh yeah I'm getting stuff," Robinson said about his early recruiting interest. "I've gotten stuff so far from Texas, Texas A&M, Georgia Tech, Notre Dame, LSU, Iowa, and Iowa State. That's the ones I can remember."
Three of those teams are out in front. Robinson says that Georgia Tech, Texas, and Texas A&M are his early top three and a leader is clear.
"Right now Texas is in front of everybody," Robinson said. "They're a very successful team and a program. I just like everything about them. All three of those teams have great football programs and facilities. I just think that I'd feel comfortable at those schools."
"Plus, I've camped at all three schools and I've been to a lot of games like the Oklahoma-Texas game and the Texas-Texas A&M game."
Robinson says it wouldn't surprise him much to see a junior offer show up on his door pretty soon. Coach Johnny Ringo has been helping him with the process and wants to make sure his star junior takes his time with the recruiting process.
"He just told me to check out all of my options first," Robinson said. "I told him though if Texas offered me, I might not wait more than a week to commit. I don't know, it's early and I'm kind of open right now to whatever happens."
Robinson says his junior year will not be the only special season of his high school career. He is part of a loaded junior class for next year with both Robinson and running back Chris Slater coming back for their second starting year.
"It's going to be real exciting next season," Robinson said. "We should come into the season highly ranked because we had at least 11 juniors that are coming back to start."
