Cornerback DeNathian Robinson joined Hampton (Va.) Phoebus teammate Arron Ward by committing to the Thundering Herd today. The 5-foot-10, 161-pounder picked Marshall over offers from Ohio and Kent. What made him pick Marshall in the end?
"Last weekend I went on a visit there and I just felt like it was the right place to be," he said. "They have all the facilities I need, they have good academics, they are closer to home than Ohio and my parents liked it too. It was just the place for me so I went ahead and committed.
"I really like the tradition of the school and the team they have there. Besides that, all of the coaches have a lot of experience."
Robinson is glad to have a decision behind him.
"It's a lot of stress off my shoulders because coaches aren't calling anymore," he said. "Now I can just work in school to get myself right to go to Huntington."
The two-star prospect has a chance at playing early next year for the Herd.
"The coaches have told me it all depends on how I perform in camp," he said. "I plan to hit the weight room and do some speed drills to try to get myself ready. I'm ready to go out there and do it."
