Nice pickup! He started 20 games for us at center in 2018/2019 and was solid, if not spectacular. He got beat out last year by the younger Jake Renfro. Selfishly, I'd rather not have to play against him in league, but I'm happy for him for finding a higher-profile program to play for than ASU (no offense to their fans). I'm guessing he has been sold on being the starter, otherwise I doubt he would have flipped his commitment. He is, at worst, a serviceable AAC starter at center, and assuming he's improved since he last played heavily in 2019, he could be one of the better centers in the league.
Memphis was one of his final preferred options. He decommitted hours after the conference rule change.
Quote:"I was devastated when I couldn't come to Memphis initially because I committed to them a month ago, but the conference shut it down," Robinson told GT247. "They [Memphis' staff] told me to commit somewhere to make sure I got a spot, but they promised me they'd fight for me to get here and they did just that."

"When I found out the policy was eliminated, I was so happy. Honestly, I was bouncing around the house when I got the news," Robinson said. "Memphis was the frontrunner from day one, and I can't wait to get on campus with my new coaches and teammates. Words can't explain how happy I am and how much Memphis' staff means to me."

Yup! Would rather not play against him, but happy he landed at Memphis instead of playing for Flakey Butch Jones at Arkansas State!

Met his family once when we played Navy @home and they were great people that made the drive up IIRC from Alabama for each game so hopefully this cuts down their drive time.

They especially loved the Navy game as Cincinnati has many Navy fans and put on as good of a show as I could expect both on and off the field. Good luck to Jakari just don't beat us!

UCF gets commitment from a freshman all American DT/DE from Western Kentucky. He only played in 4 games and had 58 tackles, 7 TFL, 4 sacks, and a Forced Fumble.

This is insane. To get a Freshman All-American to an already promising D-line is huge. We just turned our Achilles heel to a strength

Yeah, we hired his DL coach from WKU, that’s a main reason he came here.

3 star TE from Florida picks Tulane. He chose the Green Wave over Miami, FSU, Ole Miss, Indiana, and usf, among others.

My guess is their statistician is like the old one we had on our staff at the high school I currently coach. If there are 10 people on a pile, all 10 get a tackle...

Tackles are an odd stat. I used to get roughly 25 a game. It wasn't because I was a super stud, it was because I was the only one that really knew how to tackle.

Side note, thank god horse collar wasn't a rule in the early 2000s, or my signature move of grabbing the neck of the shoulder pads from behind and going limp would have been a real problem. We would have easily given up 70 per game.

3 star QB from Florida commits to Tulane, joining his teammate who committed recently. Chose the Green Wave over Southern Miss.

Wow. You have the chance at a top 5 DL from what I can tell.

He’s one of the highest rated players to commit to Tulane (13th) and will play WR ( our position of need).
