Jammie Robinson’s recruitment took off this spring, when the 2019 athlete from Cordele (Ga.) Crisp County collected offers from Alabama, Auburn, Florida State, Georgia Tech, Kentucky, LSU, Michigan, Mississippi State, N.C. State, Ole Miss, South Carolina, Tennessee and others.
Clemson was the latest to jump in the mix with an offer last weekend. Defensive line coach Todd Bates delivered the news to Robinson.
“It felt great. At first I didn’t expect it because Clemson is a hard offer to get,” Robinson told The Clemson Insider. “My coach called me telling me to call coach Bates. I called him, and we had a talk and he told me that I have an offer from Clemson.”
Robinson said he is now scheduled to visit Clemson this month.
“I know it’s going to be this month when I get there,” he said. “I think it’s July 20, but I know I’m getting up there for sure this month.
“I want to know more about the education up there. I want to learn about the school, the culture at the school. I just really want to learn more about it and tour around the campus.”
Robinson (5-11, 185) plays all over the field and is viewed as a defensive or offensive prospect by his various suitors. Clemson is recruiting him as a defensive back, specifically nickel back.
Robinson admitted he doesn’t know much about Clemson, though one thing jumps out at him.
“I haven’t been up there yet, but I do like that they win,” he said. “They compete for the national championship every year. So that’s how much I really know about them right now, that they’re a winning program. But whenever I do get up there, I’ll learn more about the school and everything.”
Robinson most recently visited Florida State and South Carolina last month. Georgia is also slated to host Robinson in July, while he wants to visit Michigan and return to Alabama and South Carolina this summer.
Robinson, who cited South Carolina as the school recruiting him the hardest in the early going, is looking to potentially narrow the field this fall.
“I think during my junior year I’m going to have a top five, but I don’t know yet,” he said. “Probably later on during the season.”
What factors will carry weight in Robinson’s future decision?
“If the school checks up on my parents, and whenever I go to the campus, if I feel at home,” Robinson said. “Education wise, and playing time, too. That will play a factor in it also.”
