Fairfield (Calif.) is home to one of the top linebacker prospects in the West region. Jamarr Robinson, 6-2, 240 pounds is a big, physical athlete who recently set up his first official visit and said three schools stand out to him at this time.
Robinson already looks like a college player as he's all of 240 pounds and built like a mack truck. Coming off a junior season that saw him total 106 tackles and earn all-area honors, Robinson had a very impressive Nike Camp at Stanford and was rated as one of the top two players at his position that day.
Somewhat surprising, Robinson said a lot of schools still aren't sold and plan to watch his first few games next season before offering a scholarship.
"Yeah, a lot of schools said they want to see more film of me before offering," Robinson said. "Oklahoma, Utah, USC a lot of other schools have said the same thing. They like me, but just want to wait until after my second game next season to see how I do. Right now, I have offers from Arizona State, Washington, Washington State, San Diego State, Colorado, San Diego State and San Jose State.
"My coach told me that UCLA was going to send over a written offer for both me and DelaShaun (Dean) but neither one of us have seen it yet. Right now, my top three and the main schools I'm looking at are ASU, Utah and Oklahoma. I just really like those three schools a lot and have set up an official visit to ASU for (Sept. 16). I talk to coach Helfrich at ASU all the time and I think I would fit in really well at ASU.
"With Oklahoma, it's the same thing, I like their coaches a lot and the fact that they're a winning program doesn't hurt either. With Utah, it's a smaller school but I like their style of play and really enjoyed watching them last season. Both of those schools said they're close to offering but they want to see my first game next season. Notre Dame is up there as well and I would love to visit them.
"My plan is try and take as many of my trips during the season as I can so that I'll be able to make my college decision sometime after the season. I don't want to drag this out too long. "
Academically, Robinson said he's carrying a 3.0 GPA and scored a 930 on the SAT.
