Robinson names Top 10

When spring began, three-star cornerback Darius Robinson did not have a single scholarship offer.

But the 6-foot-0, 170-pounder from Atlanta, Ga., has been flooded with 23 offers in just a matter of weeks. Robinson began the process of narrowing down a Top 10 list and informed BulldogBlitz shortly after letting those schools know.

Robinson cut 13 schools from his list and is now focusing on Mississippi State, Miami, Clemson, Central Florida, Maryland, Kentucky, North Carolina, Stanford, Wake Forest and West Virginia.

"When I sat down and looked at all my schools, I looked at the relationship I had with the coaches who were recruiting me and that's how I made my Top 10," Robinson said. "I notified all the schools that made my Top 10 and it's really just about the relationship I had with those schools, where I would fit in on the depth chart and schools that I could go in and play early."

Since narrowing things down to 10 schools late Friday, Robinson stated a sense of relief.

"I think since now it's a dead period and they can't get out and recruit, it takes a lot of pressure off me especially since I am trying to make a decision in the coming month," Robinson said. "A lot of emails stopped coming so I think it took a lot of pressure off me."

Now the next step for Robinson is to cut his list in half and come up with a top five. There is one factor that is going to help him decide which school is the right fit.
