Delray Beach (Fla.) Village Academy wide receiver Devonte Robinson felt he was close to his first offer for a while, but when it finally came on Tuesday, he was a bit caught off-guard.
"SMU offered me," Robinson said. "I talked to Coach (Derrick) Odum. It shocked me because of how they came at me, out of nowhere. I was surprised when they told me, because it came out of the blue."
"It was surprising because all of these other schools after me, they haven't offered me yet, but this new school did," Robinson added.

Some of the other schools that Robinson has heard from includes Kansas, Florida Atlantic, Florida State, UCF, Wake Forest, and Western Kentucky. Robinson hopes that his first offer is just the start of things.
"It is a weight off my shoulders," Robinson said. "Everything feels good. It just means that there are many more to come."
As for what he learned about the Mustangs, it mainly has to do with the role that the 6-foot-1, 170-pound speedy wideout would play in their offense.
"They just told me it is a pass-heavy offense, that they run spread," Robinson said. "It is pass-first, then they run out of it."
Robinson, who said he would like to visit SMU during the summer, said he plans to attend Florida Atlantic's Junior Day on April 9th.
