There is a sleeper prospect who is playing quarterback on the high school level but projects as a safety prospect on the D-I level. He was flying under the radar but leading his team to a quick 6-0 start has opened up some eyes.
The player is Jason Robinson (6-1, 200, 4.55) from Los Angeles (Calif.) University.
Arizona, Washington, Washington State, Cal, UCLA, Utah, Utah State, Fresno State and Villanova have all expressed interest in Robinson.
"Jason has one trip set to Fresno State," University coach E.C. Robinson said. "I just know the exact date."
"Jason plays hard and he's a sure tackler," Robinson said. "He could end up as a heck of a strong safety, he's that good of tackler."
Robinson first grabbed the attention of Rivals.com this past spring when he attended the adidas camp held in Westwood where he was considered one of the top defensive backs in attendance.
Robinson has been an all-league and all-city selection for both his sophomore and junior seasons. He was his team's MVP for the season of 2004.
Robinson has been starting on the varsity level since his freshman season. Another thing to like about Robinson is he has been around the game his whole life so he has an advanced knowledge of football.
From his quarterback position, Robinson has rushed for 390 yards and has scored 10 touchdowns. He has also thrown for two touchdowns.
On defense Robinson has racked up 28 tackles and has two picks.
"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.
