Notre Dame lands a commitment from the Admiral's son.
Corey Robinson, the son of NBA legend David Robinson, has committed to the Notre Dame Fighting Irish. Robinson is a wide receiver recruit out of San Antonio Christian Academy. Robinson also held offers from Iowa, Kansas, Navy (where his father played basketball), North Carolina and Wake Forest. Robinson is a consensus three-star recruit.
As one might expect, Robinson has plenty of height at 6'4". He weighs in at 200 pounds. Fans who followed his father might wonder if Robinson will continue to get taller into his college years, just as his father did.
Congrats to my son on his big decision!#GoFightingIrish— David Robinson (@DavidtheAdmiral) March 28, 2012
Robinson does not have elite speed, but does jump fairly well. Robinson did not grow up playing football, and has only played for a few years. As a junior, he made first team all-state, albeit in a small conference. Robinson's skills fit well with Notre Dame's field, which often makes it tough to get separation and forces receivers to take to the air.
Notre Dame has been on a recruiting tear of late, adding six prospects in the last 72 hours.
