Robinson now at six offers

Delray Beach (Fla.) Village Academy wide receiver Devonte Robinson saw his offer list reach a half-dozen on Wednesday when a Big East program came calling.
"West Virginia offered me today," Robinson said. "First they called my coach and told him about the offer. Then my coach called me and told me to call Coach (Robert) Gillespie because he wanted to offer me. When I called Coach Gillespie he was telling me about their offensive style. He told me about who has played in their offense before. He also talked to me about the new offensive coordinator (Dana Holgerson), and who he has coached in the past."
For the 6-foot-1, 170-pound wideout with very good speed, the offer from the Mountaineers puts them amongst the other schools that have offered - Bowling Green, Memphis, Southern Methodist, Western Kentucky, and Western Michigan.
"I am very interested," Robinson said. "But I am very interested in any program that shows interest in me. My options are open until after my spring game and going into the summer. That is when I intend to crack down and figure everything out."
When it comes time for his to figure things out and narrow his list, he intends to sit down with a tight circle of confidants to hatch out a plan of attack.
"I plan to go over it with my coach, my cousin, and my mother about everything and figure out where and why I want to go to a school," Robinson said. "We will narrow things down and figure out which schools fit what I want. We will make a decision from there after I take my visits during the summer or season."
As for his next offer, Robinson believes that South Florida, Kansas, or Rutgers could pull the trigger during spring practice.
Two other schools Robinson is involved with are Florida Atlantic and Miami. He visited the pair recently for Junior Day events.
"FAU was nice," Robinson said. "We toured the campus and toured the field. I have been there a couple of times before because my cousin (running back Jeff Blanchard) played football there. The new field looks like it is going to be nice. I hit it off with the coaches."
"I went to Miami's practice a few weekends ago when it was at Lockhart Stadium," Robinson added. "They seem like they have been working really hard. Their running backs had some big gains in the practice. Their receivers also go the ball."
As a junior, Robinson was used as a wide receiver and a running back on offense, as well as a safety on defense.
