Bellaire (Texas) Episcopal quarterback Austin Robinson may be relatively soft-spoken off the field but the standout sophomore is anything but when he puts on his pads on Friday nights. The 6-foot-4, 210-pound class of 2013 prospect has already established himself as one of the top prospects to watch in his class.
Despite still being an underclassman Robinson has been in contact with a few schools. Several in-state programs made their way by his high school this spring.
"I'm hearing from a few schools already," Robinson said. "Texas A&M, Texas, TCU - they're all just looking at me right now. They're just checking me out and everything right now."

Robinson is already very familiar with one of those programs.
"My dad played for Texas in the 80's," he said. "His name is Allen Robinson. He played fullback. I've obviously grown up a fan of Texas. I grew up in a Texas household for sure."
Robinson plans to hit the 40 Acres this summer as well as a couple of other camps.
"I'm going to camps at Texas, HBU and LSU," he said. "The Texas camp is this weekend. HBU doesn't have a football team but they have a camp."
Though Robinson will likely have more than his fair share of opportunities to continue his football career in college, he will be focused on another aspect of each school.
"I'm going to find the best school that fits my education needs," he said. "I want to go to medical school. Really, I'm focused on education. Football is a great thing but it won't be around for my whole lifetime. I have to have an education for after football."
Robinson says he like Texas and Texas A&M but by no means is limiting his options.
"I also like Stanford, TCU and some others," he said. "I'm looking at all of my options. Every school that has been brought up to me, I'm looking into."
