As one of the top players in the country regardless of position, Rivals100 Arizona running back Bijan Robinson has his share of options when it comes to taking official visits. But with time running out to take them before the dead period, Robinson has started to zero in on options. Two of the schools that made the cut and will get trips this month are Ohio State and Texas, with Robinson set to visit Columbus and Austin on back-to-back weekends. Rivals.com caught up with Robinson to talk about his expectations for both visits and why each school made the cut.

IN HIS WORDS

"I have official visits set up to Ohio State (Jun. 14) and Texas (June 21)."

Ohio State: "They're one of my top five schools. I wanted to get it done as soon as possible."

Jack Miller connection: "He's been recruiting me for a while. He tells me to go with my gut and make my own decision but he's been a big part of the recruiting process. I don't know if it will be Ohio State but he's been doing a good job of pitching them to me."

Running back use under new staff: "They have said just to expect the same thing that they've always been doing. They are kind of in need of running backs right now, so I'm just managing that relationship and seeing how it goes."

Importance of early playing time: "I know I'm going to have to work for it but playing early would be a special thing for me."

Expectations for first time in Columbus: "I have heard a lot of great things about it because my teammate, Lathan Ransom, went up there for a visit. From what everybody says how it is, I'm expecting a great time."

Texas: "Just the coaching staff really stands out to me. Coach Drayton and how he handles his players and what he would do for me in the future is big. Just the program alone and how they represent themselves is a big part for me."

Bowl victory over Georgia: "Right before that game is when I got the offer from them and I watched it to see how they do offensively and how they use their running backs and I liked it a lot."

Relationship with Tom Herman: "He's a players-first type coach. He's very energetic and loves to get himself out there with the players and the kids. I talk to him a lot and I love his family and just everything he stands for."

Expectations for visit: "I have been there before so I just want to take my family up there. I loved it when I went I want them to see it and experience what I saw."

Other visits: "USC, UCLA and LSU are all in the mix."
