Offensive lineman Cameron Robinson, one of the top talents of the 2014 recruiting class, is ready to make a decision. The 6'5", 330-pound Louisiana star posted an announcement on Twitter Tuesday evening, letting the nation know he will issue a formal commitment Friday.
I'll be announcing what college I'll attend this Friday Aug 30th.— Cameron D. Robinson (@crobinson_68) August 27, 2013
-UPDATE- August 28, 9:10 pm
Robinson tweeted late Wednesday night that his decision date has been changed, and his reason why is certainly a good one.
Commitment Date has been pushed back to next Wednesday, Sept 4, 2013 bc Espn wld like to come to West Monroe & cover it live ...— Cameron D. Robinson (@crobinson_68) August 29, 2013
Robinson has racked up scholarship offers from Arkansas, Auburn, Michigan, Ole Miss, Texas and Oklahoma, among others, according to 247Sports. It is believed his final decision comes down to SEC rivals LSU and Alabama, as reported by AL.com writer Matt Scalici.
It sets up yet another showdown between the Tigers and Crimson Tide, who have gone toe-to-toe for several talented prospects with Les Miles and Nick Saban leading respective recruiting efforts. Robinson is the latest elite target that both powerhouse programs have pursued.
The tackle is considered the No. 1 player in the country, according to 247Sports composite rankings. The West Monroe high school star must decide whether to stay loyal to his home state squad or depart to join forces with the two-time defending national champions.
He has visited each campus and spoke with coaching staffs on several occasions. He was in Tuscaloosa less than two weeks ago, according to NOLA.com.
Robinson is a prototypical tackle prospect who warrants consideration to start as a freshman. He has tremendous reach and power-blocking ability that is simply scary for a 17-year-old.
He later followed up his initial announcement with a tweet that indicated he would soon provide details about the commitment ceremony and what time of the day it would take place.
I'll have the time & place tomorrow.— Cameron D. Robinson (@crobinson_68) August 27, 2013
