4-star LB has full visit schedule

Marcus Robinson

Marcus Robinson made an early commitment to the University of Miami but that hasn't stopped him from becoming one of the most heavily recruited players in the entire nation. Read on, as Scout.com has all the latest...

We caught up with Homestead High coach Bobby McCray today.

"Marcus had a great senior season," McCray said. "He finished the year with 21 sacks on defense and he caught five touchdown passes on offense. He's so athletic and versatile that we were moving him around. He played receiver and tight end on offense and d-end and a little linebacker on defense."

McCray believes Robinson will find a home as an outside linebacker in college.

"That's where these schools want him to play and that's where I think his best position will be," he said. "Remmeber, he runs a legit 4.4 so he can do a lot of things for you from the outside."

Robinson, who now checks in at 6-foot-2 and 220 pounds, took his second official visit this past weekend.

"He went to USC over the weekend and had a good time," he said. "He likes what they do out there. The USC coaches are actually coming in today to meet with him."

His first visit went to LSU and he recently set up a couple more.

"He's meeting with Florida State right now and set up a visit there for January 11th," he said. "He's interested in them and Florida also. He goes to Florida on the 19th. South Florida has also been here and he might visit them on the last weekend, the 26th."

That last visit might go to Miami, the school Robinson committed to earlier this year.

"He's not sure about that last weekend yet," he said. "He may just go to Miami unofficially and then go to USF for the official visit. (Former Homestead defensive coordinator) Mike (Barrow) is coming Friday to meet with him."

McCray said Robinson's been a very busy man lately.

"With these coaches coming all the time and with the visits and everything, it's a lot," he said. "He's handling it well though."

Now that the season's over, Robinson has had more time to focus on his grades. McCray gave an update on that.

"He's been getting tutoring every night and he's now up to a 2.9 GPA," he said. "He just recently took the test and we're waiting for those scores to come back. He's gonna take it again this Saturday."
