Our man Ryan Bartow reports WR Demarcus Robinson has pledged to Clemson. Would this be classified as an undecommitment?— Larry Williams (@LarryWilliamsTI) December 17, 2012
Robinson stars for Fort Valley (Ga.) Peach County High School. He is a consensus four-star recruit, and one of the top receivers in the country. At 6'2 and 200 pounds, Robinson is far too much for most high school defensive backs to handle, and he has true college-ready size as a high school senior. With that, Robinson combines excellent body control.
The addition of new receivers coach Joker Phillips, formerly the head coach of Kentucky, appeared to seal the deal for the Gators, but Clemson did not give up, and the long-standing relationships Robinson has with Clemson's staff may have played a role in the flip.
Insiders recently described Robinson as a confused kid who really was not sure of what he wanted to do.
