Highland Springs Christian Robinson (2020 WR/LB 6-2 185) attended our Clash of the Titans II showcase a few weeks back, and last Saturday, Robinson was back out on the camp circuit at the ASSIST Top 50 camp at Hermitage High School.
Robinson is a rising junior who has spent his last two seasons dominating for the Springers at the junior varsity level. As a sophomore, Christian recorded over 600 yards receiving and chipped in six touchdowns. Now it’s his turn to step up to varsity and make his presence felt on a bigger stage.
“Ninth grade, tenth grade it was very new. I can say I’m a totally different player from two years ago, a year ago. I’m humble when it comes to the field, but now I got a cocky attitude, but not too cocky, I’m still humble when it comes to certain things. I’ve developed into a new player, and can be the man in certain situations,” explained Robinson.
When asked what areas of his game he’s improved the most in, Robinson stated, “I think most of my game when it comes to route running and speed, I didn’t have that mamba mentality, I didn’t have that dog in me. Now, when you step in front of me, I’m going to show you that I’m better than you.”
At this point, Christian does not hold any offers, but he’s been in constant contact with ECU. “ECU has been showing a lot of interest towards me, but when it comes to offers, I’m carrying zero offers, no rankings, no stars.”
While his recruitment hasn’t really taken off at this point, I believe Robinson has the skill set and work ethic to become the next big Springer wideout to play at the Division I level. He’s got great hands, a great frame, but most importantly, he carries a 3.7 GPA. Once the season kicks off in February, remember the name, Christian Robinson.
