"They all share the same set of things that make them stand out to me," Robinson said. "I get along with the receiver coaches. I like the former players that have been there that I know about. In researching things, I like what each has to offer. They are all BCS schools and I want to go to a BCS school. The coaches at each of them is showing love to me a lot, both their receivers coaches and the coaches that are recruiting me. I have built a good relationship with each of them."
As for what has the Mountaineers on top, he explained the reasons why they stand out the most to him at this juncture.
"West Virginia is my leader," Robinson said. "Coach (Robert) Gillespie is a good guy. They have been active with me since day one. They came down and watched my spring game. I like their football team, football-wise, what they do. I know about the players that Coach (Dana) Holgorsen coached when he was at Oklahoma State and I liked what he did with guys like Justin Blackmon and Dez Bryant when he was there."
At this point, the South Florida product isn't sure when he will make it on campuses.
"I haven't visited any of them," Robinson said. "This summer we are doing a lot of stuff as a team but I am going to try to go to at least one or two of them, but if not then I will just use all my officials."
Even if he is unable to visit the schools in the next month, Robinson still intends to decide before he hits the field again in the fall.
"I think I have done enough research on them that even if I don't visit I can still decide before school starts so I can focus on my senior season," Robinson said.
When his decision is made, Robinson said he still intends to take officials to all five of his favorites.
"I still plan on visiting all of them," Robinson said. "They give you five (official visits), so why not use all of them."
During his junior season Robinson suffered a broken hand and only played the final six games of 2010. He finished the season with 28 receptions for 635 yards and nine touchdowns. He also had three rushing touchdowns.
