Louisville (Ky.) Trinity offensive tackle Sam Robey is big and versatile. While he likely projects as an offensive tackle on the college level he has been kept busy on the high school level playing several roles, including defense. Some recent scholarship offers prove that schools are taking notice.
"Purdue and Middle Tennessee State just offered," Robey said. "Purdue offered me two or three weeks ago. I actually didn't know he had offered until the week after. He just told me they wanted me to be a Boilermaker, but I didn't take it as him offering me until I found out a week later. Then Middle Tennessee State offered me last week."
Purdue and MTSU join Kentucky and Louisville as schools that have already offered Robey. Robey also includes Vanderbilt as a fifth school that is showing him heavy interest.
With the Purdue offer in hand, Robey plans on visiting Purdue later this weekend.
"I'm going to Purdue on the 27th when they play Northwestern," he said. "I've been up there twice for the senior camp and the Nike combine, but I haven't really been able to look at the campus."
Robey still insists that he doesn't have any favorites on his list but knows what he is looking for.
"I don't have any top schools yet," he said. "It's still between all of them really. I want to play against top competition. I want to play against the best really."
Since Robey is still very undecided on his college plans, his timeline is yet to be set.
"I could make [my decision] tomorrow or it could be after the season or all the way until February," he said. "I don't really know."
Robey's play has been affective on both sides of the ball this season as he rarely comes off the field.
"I think I've played pretty well," he said. "For like three or four of the games, I've played pretty much every down. So that has kind of worn me out."
In the most recent rankings, Robey was rated by Rivals.com as the No. 8 player in Kentucky .
