Robinson Has Some Visit Destinations in Mind

At 6-foot-3, 275-pounds, G.G. Robinson is a big and physical tight end out on the perimeter for Lilburn (Ga.) Parkview High School. Numerous schools have extended offers to the Peach State product, including the South Florida Bulls, who offered on Thursday afternoon.

South Florida continues to pursue physically imposing tight end's on the recruiting trail to bolster their pro-style attack that Willie Taggart's looking to install in Tampa Bay.

G.G. Robinson, a 6-foot-3, 275-pound tight end out of Lilburn (Ga.) Parkview High School, was one of several prospects out of the Peach State who're offered by Taggart's staff on Thursday afternoon.

"Today, I got South Florida," Robinson said. "(Defensive line) coach (Eric) Mathies came by our school. I just like that it's in Florida and it's not too far from home. I love Florida.

"They've been sending me letters all the time, but they're just the letters they send to everyone that aren't handwritten or anything."

Last weekend, Robinson was in attendance for the University of Auburn's spring game, where his father spent his college years. For the tight end, playing for Gus Malzahn's Tigers would be a dream come true.

"My dad played at Auburn in the Bo Jackson years," Robinson said. "He went with Bo and left with Bo. Bo was the first pick of the NFL Draft and my dad was the fourteenth. My dad always talks about Auburn and he loves Auburn.

"It's a great family feel at Auburn because my dad went there and everything. They love my dad, they love me. They haven't offered me, but I think it should be coming soon. If they offered, they would immediately jump to the top of my list."

The Peach State product plans on making full use of his college degree when his football career comes to a close, making academics a significant factor in the decision-making process for Robinson.

"Well, I want to make sure that school has my major," Robinson said. "I want to major in Kinesiology, Sports Medicine type of stuff."

Robinson provides another big body along the offensive line, but leaning out and working on his skills as a receiving threat are points of emphasis in his offseason training.

"I need to improve on my speed, but I have pretty good feet for my size," Robinson said. "I also need to drop about 25-pounds."

He won't be taking any visits in the next couple of weeks, but Robinson has set his sights on a handful schools for over the summer.

"I definitely want to go to South Florida, Tennessee, Louisville, and I find my way back to Auburn all the time," Robinson said. "I also want to go to Virginia."

Robinson says he has no leaders in his recruitment, and no timetable for his college decision.
