Robinson: “OU is one of my dream schools. I’m excited about their new coach, the offense they run, the opportunity to get to play soon and the chance to win championships.”

The most frequently used word to describe Robinson is explosive. Most recruiting services ranked him as an athlete. He scored touchdowns rushing, receiving and returning both kickoffs and punts during his high school career. Just 17, he’s bound to get bigger. He played at Fort Worth Pascal until his senior season.

“You can’t coach speed, and he has it,” said All Saints coach Aaron Beck. “He’s also the best route runner I’ve ever seen and works at his game seven days a week, in season and out. Oklahoma is not only getting a great player, but an outstanding person from a solid family. We are all thankful that he got to be part of our program.”
