Sleeper athlete prospect Jason Robinson (6-1, 200, 4.55) from Los Angeles (Calif.) University took his first official visit to Boise State this weekend. Since the departure of Coach Dan Hawkins, Boise State is in a position of flux regarding position coaches. The Broncos did name Chris Peterson their new head coach.
"The whole staff that was there for the season except Coach Hawkins is still there for the Bowl game," Robinson said. "The players are still fired up and are looking forward to the future."
"The players seem to think that everything will keep going strong since they hired offensive coordinator Chris Peterson," Robinson said. "The players said he did a lot of the stuff anyway."
"The only question mark is the position coaches," Robinson said. "Boise State isn't making anymore coaching changes until after the bowl game."
"The trip to Boise State was cool," Robinson said. "There's more to Boise than I thought."
"It's a college town and there's a lot of fan support," Robinson said. "The fans were all saying good things about the school and the team."
"My next trip is to Utah on January 6th and then to Nevada on January 13th," Robinson said. "I want to take all my trips before making a decision. I want to make sure that I'm making the choice."
From his quarterback position, Robinson threw for 1,529 yards and 10 touchdowns. He also rushed the football for 960 yards and 21 rushing touchdowns. Robinson led his team in scoring with a 114 points.
As a safety, Robinson racked up 108 tackles, four picks and three sacks.
Robinson is being recruited as a safety.
In an earlier interview with Rivals.com University coach E.C. Robinson said the following about his talented athlete prospect.
"Jason's best days as a football player are ahead of him," Robinson said. "Because he's played quarterback for much of his life, Jason understands how to play pass defense."
"The opposition rarely will throw the ball in Jason's area," Robinson said. "When they do Jason makes them pay."
Also of note, Robinson is already qualified with a 3.5 GPA and 1490 SAT score.
