San Antonio Christian
Commitment Date: 03/27/2012
Robinson is the son of NBA All-Star David “The Admiral” Robinson. Robinson made is commitment very early in the recruiting cycle. He may be the most underrated recruit in the 2013 class. Robinson possesses excellent size. He could be an instant “Red Zone” threat for the Fighting Irish. At 6’4” 195, he has the ability to come in and contribute immediately. He runs his routes well and possesses solid speed. One of the commonly asked questions about Robinson, is whether or not he will grow into a 6’7” or 6’8” player by his Sophomore year like his father? This could change his position from a “Red Zone” Wide Receiver to a prototypical Tight End.
From the Slap the Sign Evaluation:
Corey Robinson is the biggest wide receiver in the class standing at 6’4’’and weighing 195 pounds. First he will need to add some muscle and gain about 15-20 or more pounds to be a force. Besides DaVarius Daniels Notre Dame lacks height at wide receiver, Robinson will be a good addition. If he is anything like his father, David “The Admiral” Robinson he could get even taller in college. Many people thought Corey was a good prospect, but lacked many attributes to be one of the best receivers in his class. The Army All-American practices and in the game it showed how much he has improved (or been overlooked) during his senior season. Robinson really improved on his route running skills from his junior year. He has always been a good leaper and able to go up and get the football at its highest point.
The 2013 recruiting class is very deep in the wide receiver category, with 3 other guys slated to be wide outs (Onwualu, Fuller, Hunter Jr.). There will be some good competition no doubt and all four are rated as 4 stars on multiple websites. Fuller is rated the best receiver in the 2013 class for the Irish, but he doesn’t have the size Robinson has. One of the things many coaches have said about Corey is that he is a high character guy, which speaks for itself since he has never wavered on his commitment.
