Steven Robinson, or "Moose" as everyone refers to him, is the well-regarded 6-foot-3, 307 pound offensive guard from Lincoln High School in Tallahassee (Fla.). "Everybody calls me Moose," Robinson said. "I got that nickname my freshman year because I was so big. In fact, it was Cole Harvey (now a tight end at Alabama) that came up with the nickname."
"Moose" benches 425 pounds and squats 505. He says he runs the forty in 5.0 seconds. "I have an aggressive attitude on the field," he said. "I try to play low and fast. I'm tough and love to play smash-mouth football.
"I want to improve my footwork and my flexibility. If I moved better, I'd be able to get to blocks sooner and be better at pulling and cutting."
"Moose" likes to stay busy and he also competes in wrestling, track and field (shot and discus) and even plays the tuba in the band.
He has 18 scholarship offers and favors Auburn slightly over Florida State, Georgia, Iowa, Central Florida and Notre Dame. All of his favorites have offered, plus several others.
"Auburn is one of the few schools that I've already visited," he said. "I really felt welcomed there and the fans are very supportive. They have great tradition and I felt at home there. I actually know a few guys there already too."
His first scholarship offer came from UCF in March and his latest offer was from Georgia on April 21. Robinson says he never had a favorite school growing up. "But I live close to Florida State, so I kind of always liked them," he said. "My mom went there and she'd like it if I chose them. I really like all the great players they've produced and their tradition.
"I'd like to stay close, but it's all about how comfortable I feel," Robinson said. "I'll probably make my decision before December. I won't just choose a big name school just for the name. I want to play and make an impact wherever I go.
"I want to live in a nice area that is fun and I want to be around good people that care about football," Robinson said. "I just want a nice hometown environment."
Robinson will be attending the Down & Dirty lineman camp this summer and hopes to visit Notre Dame as well. "I'd really like to visit them and see what it's like," he said. "I need to check out their depth chart and see if I'd be able to play there.
"I also want to learn more about Iowa," Robinson said. "The coaches are really good and they are really showing me a lot of attention. They say they really like me and my style and think I'd fit in well with them."
He reports a 3.1 core GPA and is waiting on his ACT results, which he took in early April.
