UCLA moves up for Robinson

Ron Robinson performed well at UCLA's camp on Friday night and Sunday morning the Corona (Calif.) Santiago defensive back landed an offer from the Bruins.
The 6-foot-2, 190-pound prospect said it's a major offer to have, that he loves the UCLA coaching staff and he needs to talk with his coaches and parents before making any decisions but that the Bruins might be tough to beat in his recruitment.
"It's huge," Robinson said. "I'm very excited. I love their coaching staff and everything about UCLA, Jim Mora with his NFL experience, it's huge, I'm so happy."
Working with the coaches, especially defensive backs coach Demetrice Martin, especially stood out to Robinson during his weekend trip to Westwood.
That could play a major factor in Robinson's decision-making process.
"It was great," Robinson said. "They have very good personalities. They know how to interact with teenagers very well and talk how we do and get pumped up.
"They bring a lot of excitement to the field that a lot of other coaches don't while still teaching you. They mix that professionalism while having fun at the same time so I really loved it."
UCLA moves way up on the list for Robinson, who also has an offer from Northwestern, but a commitment might not be imminent.
The Corona Santiago recruit still wants to talk about things with those close to him but the Bruins look good especially after the offer came this weekend.
"Moving forward, I'm not sure yet," Robinson said. "It all hasn't set in yet. I'm excited. I don't know moving forward. I have to take some time and think about it. They're definitely my No. 1.
"It just happened this morning so I have to give it some time to set in. I have to talk with my coaches about it. They're definitely No. 1 though."
