The Demarcus Robinson Soap Opera Finally Ends

I didn’t think anyone could flip-flop more than Brett Favre. That is until four-star wide receiver Demarcus Robinson (Fort Valley, GA/Peach County) came along. On Monday Robinson committed to the Florida Gators. Again.

The Robinson saga first began back in July 2012 when he first committed to the Clemson Tigers. That commitment lasted until the beginning of December when Robinson decided to decommit. The same day that Robinson decommitted from the Tigers he committed to the Gators, which lasted all of five days when he decided that wasn’t for him.

This is where the story gets interesting. When Robinson decommitted from the Gators he committed back to the Tigers. When Robinson arrived at the U.S. Army All-American bowl however, he claimed he wasn’t committed to any team at the time.

Are you still with me? Good.

On Monday morning Robinson tweeted “#Gatornation here I come!” He also sent a text to Derek Tyson of ESPN to confirm his commitment. So for now anyway, it looks as though Robinson is in fact a Gator.

Robinson was expected to enroll early at whatever school he did end up at. So until there are reports that Robinson is in fact sitting in a seat in a lecture hall on the University of Florida campus or he sends out a picture on Twitter of him in a seat on campus, I won’t believe he is fully committed to the Gators. There are still plenty of opportunities for Robinson to change his mind. It could be worse, we could be following Favre’s private jet around the country.
