Pompano Beach (Fla.) Blanche Ely four-star cornerback Rashard Robinson made his way to Baton Rouge this week to participate in the football camp held at LSU. For the South Florida prospect, the camp experience and subsequent visit to the school was invaluable.
"It was a great experience," Robinson said. "I went up there and I just worked at the camp. I took a visit and they showed me around the school. They showed me what it is like to be a player there and everything. Everything was a good experience."
During the camp, Robinson worked closely with defensive backs coach Corey Raymond who has been his primary recruiter during the process.

"He talked to me about a lot of stuff," Robinson said. "He showed me how to use my feet. He taught me a lot of stuff. He showed me tough love. I feel like I got better working with him."
The most impressive part of Robinson's visit to LSU was watching the current team during a voluntary summer workout.
"I watched the team in the weight room and then on the turf and everything is just so wound up and they have such a high intensity," Robinson said. "I was just impressed by the emotion and how everybody is competing and fighting for positions. It is a real competitive atmosphere there. That is what I really liked there."
The 6-foot-2, 163-pound defensive back intends to return to LSU for another visit down the road.
"I plan to go back along with my parents," Robinson said. "It will probably be during the season."
While Robinson described the visit as exceptional, he isn't set to name the Tigers his leader amongst his double-digit offers.
"I am very high on LSU still," Robinson said. "I can't call them my leader yet because I haven't went to Miami to take a full visit and I haven't gone out to Arkansas, Oklahoma, and places like that.
"I am going to try and take my official visits to see a few schools," Robinson added. "I want to see Arkansas, Oklahoma, Ole Miss, and West Virginia."
Those four schools, along with Florida State, Miami, and LSU, help to make up Robinson's current top seven.
As for a decision, the No. 51 prospect in Florida said it likely won't come until either the end of the year or National Signing Day.
