MNW's Robinson ready for The Opening

MNW's Robinson ready for The Opening

Peter Ariz
Miami Northwestern WR JoJo Robinson will be the second Bull in a row to be participating in Nike’s The Opening. Robinson will arrive in Oregon tomorrow.

“I’m expecting a wonderful experience because I’ve never been to Oregon or anywhere near Oregon and that’s a prestigious school so I just want to see how it goes. I saw it on TV last year with my former teammate Artie Burns in it so it looks like a great experience,” said Robinson.

Every year at The Opening, there are stories of recruits trying to sway other top prospects to the school of their choice. Robinson will be in an interesting scenario considering he is committed to Florida State, but still considering Miami. He knows both sides will be tugging at him.

“At first there might be a little tension (laughs), but at the end of the day I’m just going to try my hardest to show everyone love.”

Two of Robinson’s Northwestern teammates, Ryan Mayes and Mike Smith, committed to Miami last weekend. They are already trying to lure Robinson to Coral Gables.

“They talk to me about that a lot, but I’m just going to take my time with it and my decision will be known on signing day.”

Miami offensive coordinator James Coley recruited Robinson when he was at FSU.

“Coach Coley is a real cool coach. My last visit to UM he taught me some things I could use on routes and he helps everyone get better.”

What is keeping Robinson committed to the ‘Noles?

“I just like the feeling of Florida State and then the opportunity to play with Jameis Winston.”

Something else that Robinson has considered about Miami is the local flavor in this year’s recruiting class.

“All of us grew up together and played optimist football together so that’s something in consideration.”

Hopefully he ends up on the same team as Kaaya up there
 
do the canes wait for this kid on signing day?
i would
I wouldn't ..... too much talent at WR
Depends. If we strike out on lane (who might announce early), Rudolph at the AA game, Dixon, & the other wrs we are recruiting we might have to. I don't think that will be the case as we have Langham & Gray (possibly) at WR already. We are also in good positions for a couple of other recruits. Jojo isn't a wait for him on NSD talent imo
 
Off topic but meant to ask Pete. Mayes, is he a Miami caliber player from what you have seen?
 
Unless he is a silent, I dont think we are waiting.
 
i want to see his senior year dude has game breaking speed im high on dixon and lane of course but he could be a late bloomer

I do support Golden, but I'm smart enough to know that he is not infallible. I asked the question because there are a lot of questions about the kid, since he came from a school that doesn't usually produce that much talent. Pete has seen the kid play and I was just looking for more insight to what he saw. On top that I'm just inquiring like a poster should on this site. Slurpers who blindly support every move without question are just as bad as the negative type.
 
My good Buddy who coached the winning team (Tampa) at the IMG Academy tournament specifically mentioned Campbell and Rudolph. Said Rudolph is so smooth and a big time play maker.
