The Florida Gators‘ coaches got some pleasant news on Wednesday – DeMarcus Robinson let the staff know that they will have his services next year, and that he will not attend Clemson. Five elite prospects have committed to the Gators since Nov. 29.
“I have a chance to play as a freshman and I want to play in the SEC, so I’m a Gator now,” Robinson told The Gainesville Sun. “They’ve recruited me harder than anyone else. I was impressed with the season they had, and I can tell they really need me next year.”
Robinson will add a threatening element to the Gators’ passing attack, and another possible downfield threat that will make their offense more dynamic.
He is the total package at wide receiver, and will compete early for playing time. He has soft hands, while also being a precise route runner. This will enable him to find the small windows to catch the ball that make the difference between close losses and close wins. Robinson is also the rare wide receiver who also loves to block, so the Gators could even use him in goal-line packages.
Robinson adds one more to the Gators incredible recruiting class; they have signed 24 recruits out of the 2013 class and are the number one rated class according to some outlets. Will all their talented freshman be able to gel on the field next year? Will Muschamp is hoping so, and he certainly has a talented enough class to do it.
