WR Justin Robinson (6-4 205) of McDonough, GA was offered last month by USC and the Gamecocks have moved up his list holding a share of the lead for him with Georgia and Virginia. Gamecock receivers coach Bryan McClendon has been leading the effort and Robinson has connected well with him.
“Coach McClendon, I really like what he’s got going on down at South Carolina,” Robinson said. “Coach McClendon said he likes all the tools I’ve got. He said if I come there he’s going to coach me like I’m his own son. I really like that.”
Last season Robinson had 750 receiving yards and 14 touchdowns. He said McClendon likes several aspects of his game.
“He likes my speed, my ability to get the ball and my aggressiveness blocking wise,” Robinson said.
He also has offers from Notre Dame, Boston College, Tennessee, Central Florida, Kentucky, Florida, Florida State and West Virginia. He has visited USC, Georgia, Virginia, Florida and Georgia Tech and will be visiting Wake Forest this weekend. Next weekend he plans to visit Clemson and Notre Dame.
Robinson doesn’t plan to make a decision until September or October and he will not be signing early.
