"It means a lot," Robinson said. "They were one of my top five schools, either one or two, so it is like a dream come true."
Robinson shed more light on his conversation with Coach Raymond.
"He was saying that I am a long, lanky cornerback and I guess he heard about my cover skills and my jamming and he was saying that he wants to see how many different coverages I can play," Robinson said. "He said he knows I can play bump-and-run but he wants to see if I can play off. He wants to know if I am a student of the game.
"He told me that he wants to get me over there during the summer for a camp," Robinson added.
Robinson said he plans to camp at LSU on July 15th.
LSU joins Florida State in offering Robinson. The spring is likely to treat him very well with numerous other offers coming in.
"I don't even know," Robinson said when asked who his next offer would be. "It is probably going to be out of Alabama or Miami."
As a junior, Robinson competed at Deerfield Beach High School. He has been playing for the South Florida Express 7-on-7 squad this offseason.
