Maryland, Louisville peak QBs interest

Quarterback Andrew Robinson out of Baltimore (Md.) Calvert Hall College just sent out his tapes to schools recently and is starting to hear back from programs he's interested in.
The 6-foot-3, 220-pounder's coach has received calls from Georgia Tech, Penn State, Virginia, Maryland and Michigan State.
He has also received interest from Louisville, Florida, Connecticut and North Carolina State, although he is still waiting on his first offer.
Of the mail, Maryland and Louisville have peaked his interest.
"Tim Banks from Maryland has sent me a lot of handwritten letters as has Louisville, which really impressed me."
So does he have any favorites?
"I'm still wide open right now," he said. "I like Virginia, Maryland, Connecticut, Purdue, Penn State and Louisville though.
"I've been hearing from Maryland since the summer after my sophomore year and Virginia's programs really interest me," he said. "Connecticut is an up-and-coming school and the coaches are nice there. Purdue has had some real good quarterbacks come out of there.
"Finally, I think Penn State is on the rise again and they've signed a lot of good prospects this past year. I like Louisville's offense a lot and the last two quarterbacks from there have been really good."
Robinson plans on taking in visits to Maryland June 4th and Virginia in the next couple of months.
The quarterback prospect is also working out a lot in preparation for upcoming combines and even next season.
"I'm lifting weights three or four days a week and running two days a week," he said. "I'm throwing a lot too and working on cutting my forty time down."
The combines Robinson plans to attend include the Penn State Nike Camp and the Nike Elite 11 tryouts in either Atlanta or Michigan.
Besides combines, Robinson still has some plans to visit schools too. Over spring break he's looking at visiting spring practices at Maryland, Virginia and Connecticut and recently attended the Rivals.com Junior Day at Rutgers.
Last season Robinson threw for 1,184 yards and 15 touchdowns as he was named first team all-conference, second team all-Baltimore County and honorable mention all-state.
