Report: A'Shawn Robinson will sign with Alabama

A'Shawn Robnison at The Opening - Wescott Eberts (SB Nation)

The big defensive tackle has reportedly told Texas coaches that he will not be signing with the 'Horns.

The Texas Longhorns may have already received some bad news about longtime defensive tackle commit A'Shawn Robinson, the Fort Worth (Texas) Arlington Heights product:

The report from Orangebloods came on the heels of a report from Hookem.com that "it doesn't look good for Texas," according to a source close to the situation. Texas defensive tackle coach Bo Davis visited Robinson at his home on Saturday, when he apparently received the news.

The major threat to the Longhorns for some time had appeared to be USC, a school that Robinson favored growing up. But the buzz died down about USC after Nick Saban visited Robinson at Arlington Heights last week, at which time talk began to heat up that Robinson was thinking about switching his commitment to the Crimson Tide.

If Robinson does indeed sign with Alabama during his ceremony at noon central time on Wednesday, it will be put truth to the statement he offered to SB Nation Recruiting at the Army Bowl that his mother wanting him close to home will not factor into his decision.

For the Longhorns, the loss of Robinson would represent another major hit to a recruiting class that has already lost four other prospects, including star wide receiver prospect Ricky Seals-Jones.
