Nebraska had been the long-time favorite for Joe Robinson but the Temecula (Calif.) Chaparral inside linebacker now gives the edge to Arizona since the Wildcats have been showing more interest in the last month.
Arizona and Nebraska are definitely the top two for Robinson, a 6-foot-2, 243-pound three-star prospect who doesn't plan to start taking official visits until after his senior season.
That means his recruitment could have even more twists and turns.
"Arizona has been climbing up my list since the B2G camp (in July)," Robinson said.
"They've been showing me a lot of interest and sending me hand-written letters and they've been talking to me a lot. I like the opportunity for playing time there and the coaching staff a lot."
Robinson, who finished with 64 tackles and 10 sacks in his junior season, said Arizona is the favorite and that Nebraska is still in the picture but its coaching staff hasn't been showing as much interest recently.
"They haven't fallen out of it but they haven't been showing me as much interest like Arizona," Robinson said.
"They started showing me lots more interest after B2G. Every day several letters come in the mail and there are a lot of hand-written ones showing interest in me."
Arizona State, BYU, Colorado, Mississippi State, Nevada, San Diego State, SMU and Washington have also offered Robinson but it's clear Arizona and Nebraska are the frontrunners.
Since Robinson, rated No. 16 at inside linebacker in the 2012 class and No. 54 in the California state rankings by Rivals.com, doesn't plan to take any official visits during the season this should be a two-team battle to watch with intrigue throughout the fall and winter.
