In the early stages of his recruitment, Hephzibah (Ga.) High School junior Terry Robinson is already hearing from several BCS programs and most are intrigued by his athletic ability. Recruited as an athlete, Robinson lined up at quarterback, running back and receiver last fall and threw for 1,699 yards with eight touchdowns and 10 interceptions.
"It has been going pretty good and it's not too rough yet," said the 5-foot-10 and 180-pound Robinson. "I am hearing from Georgia Tech, Mississippi State, NC State, Pittsburgh, Virginia Tech and Miami (Ohio) the most right now. The best part is just getting to see all these colleges nad what they have to offer.
"I have already been to junior days at Mississippi State and Florida and I am planning to go see Georgia Tech and Virginia Tech during our spring break. Plus, I am planning to camp at Georgia Tech, Virginia Tech, Florida and I am also interested in going back to Mississippi State for one of their one-day camps."
Concering his recent trip to Mississippi State, Robinson said he's been in contact with the Bulldogs and that it was good to finally see their coaches in person.
"It was nice and I liked their campus," said Robinson, who has been timed with 4.51 speed. "Their facilities really stuck out to me and it was also a good experience to watch them practice. I really like Brett Favre's nephew (Dylan Favre) and he is a pretty good quarterback. It was also good to see their offense at work and it's a pretty impressive offensive attack. "It was my first time going down there, too, and I left impressed with everything. I had talked to Coach (John) Hevesy a few times before so it was good to see them in person."
As far as the next level is concerned, Robinson said he wants the opportunity to stay under center. But he added he's open to any position as well.
"Mississippi State said they were looking at me as a quarterback and said my height didn't matter," said Robinson, who also rushed for more than 200 yards and four touchdowns in 2010. "And some other schools have said that, too. I tell them I am fine being recruited as an athlete and then just figure it out later. I mean, I like playing quarterback but it doesn't matter and I will play anywhere I can."
