The Oregon Ducks didn't have to wait long to get some tough recruiting news regarding the departure of Chip Kelly to the NFL. Tyree Robinson reported that he and his twin Tyrell will reopen their recruitment and take a look around the college football landscape. The twins do remain committed to Oregon, but are willing to listen to select schools like USC and Notre Dame.
And Ohio State didn't waste any time trying to gain the interest of the twins, as they offered the twins just around an hour after the announcement.

The Robinsons have made it clear that they want to play both basketball and football at the collegiate. They also are pretty adamant at wanting to play at the same school. The twins enjoy offers from most of the Pac-12 and many other major schools like Notre Dame, Georgia, Oklahoma and Tennessee for football. Tyrell is mostly being recruited as an outside linebacker, while Tyree is considered an athlete who can play multiple positions but particularly safety.
Oregon defensive coordinator Nick Aliotti is the primary recruiter of the twins to the Ducks, and might have some work to do to keep them in the fold. For now though, the Robinsons are still Oregon commits and have not decommitted.
