ANAHEIM, Calif. - There is no question that Miami cornerback/wide receiver Patrick Robinson brings speed, but this week's practices for the seventh annual Air 7 CaliFlorida Bowl has shown that the three-star prospect brings a lot more than that to the table.
Including a very impressive block on a wide receiver screen and some great catches across the middle coming flying off the hand of five-star Tim Tebow, offense is a strong suit. Defensively has also been going well for Robinson. All around, the talented Florida prospect has done quite the job this week all over the field.
"It's fun playing both positions," Robinson said. "You learn from it and learn little things about the different positions that you can use both ways. Sometimes you feel different about each position while you're at the different ones. I can't say which one I like better, but sometimes you feel different about each one according to how things are going."
Two schools currently lead for his services in Florida and Miami, but Florida State apparently is right there and visits will make the difference.
"Florida and Miami are on top," Robinson said. "I'm not going to officially visit Miami because it's right in my backyard, but I'm going to go to Florida. Florida State I'm going to as well, but I need to finalize my plans with them."
"Miami you see them on television everyday almost and it's just crazy out there with them flying all over the field. Florida is a winning program too. They've also got a good recruiting class so far."
There hasn't been as much player-to-player recruitment going on like many would think, but a little talk has been exchanged with Miami-commit Ryan Hill and the uncommitted Robinson.
"Ryan Hill has been talking the most about Miami," Robinson said with a laugh. "I mean, a couple of the other players talk about Florida. It's pretty even with what I hear. They're just telling me what each school has to offer."
