Army shaking the trees in South Carolina

The Black Knights are trying to make some noise in the state of South Carolina, as three quality prospects have hit the Army radar.

There is Justin Bolus out of James Island High School, along with Trevon Bennett and Raemond Robinson both playing ball at Goose Creek High School.

All three are players are fast and explosive; while each could play various positions in the Black Knights' defense � surely that is what the Army staff is hoping for.

Bolus already has an offer from Army, but don't be surprised if teammates Bennett and Robinson don't have that same distinction very soon.

As such, GoBlackKnights.com had a chance to catch up with the 6-foot-1, 183 pound Robinson for an update on his recruiting.


The schools that are recruiting me right now are Clemson, Charleston Southern and Army," says Robinson, who plays both strong safety and outside linebacker at Goose, but is being recruited as a safety at the next level.

When comes to Army, Robinson states that they have reaching out to him for some time now and is confident that an offer from the Black Knights is forthcoming. "They started recruiting me about a month ago and I'm anticipating an offer," he says.

"I spoke to Coach Coaxum (Tony) about two weeks ago and we talked about the program, along with my interest in Army."

Robinson, who stated that he has a 3.4 GPA, also noted that he is a versatile defensive back. "I'm more a finesse coverage kind of player, but I can hit because that's all we do down here," says a chuckling Robinson.

"I like the way Eric Berry played when he was at Tennessee and DeAndre Daniels from Clemson."

Last season Robinson recorded over 120 tackles and 5 interceptions, but might see some action on the offensive side of the ball � play receiver.

Goose Creek finished the 2010 season with 13-1 record, but lost in the semi-finals to Northwestern who was lead by Tennessee Vols bound quarterback, Justin Worley. "He ate us up," says a very candid Robinson.

So, what is Robinson looking for in a school? "I'm looking for more of a family type atmosphere," he declares. "Not so much a big college, but a place where everyone knows you and not where you get lost and not know the student body."

GoBlackKnights.com will continue the recruiting of Raemond Robison throughout the summer and his senior season.
