Ron Robinson considered waiting to make his decision until he could take official visits, specifically to UCLA and Northwestern.
Then the Corona (Calif.) Santiago defensive back took an unofficial trip to meet with the Bruins on Wednesday, he loved everything about it and Robinson decided to make his commitment on the spot.
"I took an unofficial today and I really liked the coaching staff and it was even better than the time I went to camp," Robinson said. "The campus was great so everything was telling me in my gut I might as well commit."

The 6-foot-2, 190-pound safety said he especially enjoyed meeting with the UCLA coaches. They had some good talks about his future at UCLA and they seemed to remind Robinson of his father, a big bonus as his recruitment continues.
"It's almost like they're extended family," Robinson said.
"I felt comfortable talking to them about anything. They have a lot of qualities that reminded me of my dad, the values and morals that my dad has put in our household. I was really comfortable with them on the visit."
Robinson earned an offer from the Bruins after working out at their summer camp. He had an excellent night especially during one-on-ones and 7on7 and UCLA jumped way up his list after the offer came through.
The Corona Santiago standout had said that he wanted to visit Northwestern before making any decision and since his summer schedule was crammed he would have to wait until an official visit.
Robinson said he's still undecided on whether he will visit Northwestern in the fall but that he's happy with his UCLA pledge and isn't looking back.
