Central Michigan Going Hard After Illinois QB
With Dan Lefevour heading into his senior season, the Central Michigan football program is currently on the hunt for a talented quarterback with a similar skillset. One player who has several similarities to Lefevour is Sean Robinson, a 6-foot-5 quarterback prospect from Rochester (Il.) in the class of 2010.
As a junior, Robinson threw for 1523 yards and 16 touchdowns while running for 1071 yards and 8 touchdowns. One of the first things people will notice when they watch Sean's video is that he has a very violent running style similar to that of Lefevour.
"I played wide receiver on the varsity as a freshman and a sophomore," Robinson said. "So I would say my running style came from that. Currently, I would say my running ability is the strongest aspect of my game."
Prior to his junior season of high school, Lefevour played runningback. Robinson has displayed similar versatility from the receiver position. As a sophomore, he caught 33 passes for 501 yards and a touchdown. He is also his team's punter and averages 34.6 yards per punt.
"I just go where the coaches put me," Robinson said. "I am just truly blessed to have the ability to do all of those things. I just want to do whatever is needed to help my team win. If my coaches told me to go play the defensive line, I'd do that."
While he probably won't be getting in a four-point stance any time soon, Robinson has displayed great toughness throughout his entire career. With that said, it comes as no surprise when Robinson says who he models his game after.
"I try and play like Tim Tebow," Robinson said. "I love the way he carries himself on and off the field. I am a Christian too and I think he sets a great example for me and everyone else. He is the ultimate motivator and is always driving his teammates. He is one of the best players to ever play college football and he will do whatever it takes to win."
When asked about what he was looking for in a college, Robinson was very clear that relationships would play a big part in his decision.
"I want to play in a spread offense. It's what I'm familiar with and I feel I can succeed in it," Robinson said. "Facilities aren't a big deal. A 45-pound weight is a 45-pound weight no matter where you go. I want to go to a place with great coaches who I know I can trust. I want to go to a place where I will feel comfortable for my four years there and know that I am around great people."
As far as his recruitment goes, Robinson is still wide open at this point. He currently holds offers from Northern Illinois, Syracuse, Washington State, Toledo, Air Force, Central Michigan, Ball State and Western Illinois.
"When I finally sit down and make a decision, I am going to have a very tough choice on my hands," Robinson said. "I honestly have nothing negative to say about any of the schools that have shown interest in me at this point. I'm not sure when I am going to decide. It'll just have to be whenever me and my family feel it is best."
While it is a wide-open race for Robinson at this point, Central Michigan does have some factors going in its favor.
"Coach Bajakian is a real nice guy," Robinson said. "He seems honest and I like him a lot. Central's quarterback, Dan Lefevour, is a stud. He's just a great player. Anyone who can coach a player like that has got to be a good coach."
Currently, Sean does not have a visit set with CMU but he intends to make his way to Mount Pleasant in the near future.
Until then, Robinson can be seen putting in hard work to polish his already excellent quarterback skills.
"I need to work on having a better pocket presence," Robinson said. "I need to be more aware in the pocket. I am going to put in a ton of hard work over the summer so I can show everybody that I can make all of the deep throws and that I'm not just a runner."
