Florida continues to trend upward for in-state wide receiver James Robinson.
Back in February, the U.S. Army All-American told SEC Country that UF was back in the running because of new secondary coach Torrian Gray, who’s from the same town (Lakeland, Fla.) as Robinson.
After months of communication with Gray and after attending one of Florida’s spring practices, Robinson gave the Gators more good news Wednesday. The 6-foot-3, 196-pounder revealed that UF is now his leader to Rob Cassidy of Rivals.com.
Robinson is ranked the state’s No. 2 wide receiver, according to Rivals and the 247Sports Composite. Rivals rates him as a five-star prospect.
Gray and receivers coach Kerry Dixon II both made a trip to see Robinson at his school Tuesday. Dixon helped Florida land five wideouts in the last class and led the charge in the flip of Tyrie Cleveland.
With Gray personally recruiting Robinson and Dixon working him as well, the Gators are putting themselves in position for another elite receiver.
“T has been great,” McElwain said of Gray’s recruiting ability Wednesday at the Tampa Gator Club. “Not only in this area but in Polk County. He’s been a great addition. He’s a guy that has blended in and hit the ground running.”
