Breaking news: Florida CB Rashard Robinson has committed to #LSU. That's 22 commitments for the 2013 class.— Shea Dixon (@Sheadixon) July 31, 2012
This isn't much of a surprise to those who have followed closely. Robinson earned an offer in April, camped here a couple weeks ago and was back on campus for an unofficial visit today and couldn't resist pulling the trigger. He's listed at 6'2", 163, so a tall, lean corner. He's got elite make-up speed and a fly haircut. Fits the mold of the type of outside CB we typically covet. Really like his ability to turn and run. Not afraid to tackle, but not a hitter either. He's a true cover guy. Super long armed. Reminds me, physically, of Tharold Simon. Goes to the same high school as Patrick Peterson and younger brother Avery Johnson attended. Really nice pickup. That brings the class to 22. Only 3 spots left to fill and there are some big names left on the board. The Robinson commitment does make you wonder where we stand with Priest Willis, who is amongst the best CB prospects in this year's class.
