Nebraska’s needs to continue beefing up its front seven on defense. Championship football teams almost always have good line play on both sides of the ball so the Huskers are searching the nation for talent to fit their scheme. Four-star defensive end (HV rating: 91.7) Ty Robinson from Higley High School in Gilbert, Arizona, was in Lincoln this weekend for the spring game. The big defender (6-5, 250) has been to Lincoln once this spring but what did he think of seeing the spring game?
“The fan support is insane! If support is that crazy for the spring game, I’m sure that game day is off the charts,” Robinson said.
Overall, Robinson says that the trip went very well and met all of his expectations. He got to meet with the coaches and says that he spent pretty much the whole time with them, mainly Scott Frost and defensive line coach Mike Dawson.
“Time with [Dawson] was great," Robinson said. "Loved him. In general terms, we talked about defensive philosophy and how I would fit in.”
Both of Robinson’s parents attended Chadron State in Nebraska, and his mom has a lot of family in the state. He was joined on this trip by his mom, uncle and an Elev8 Sports Academy coach, but says he did have other family members that attended the game.
The defensive athlete from the Centennial State told me that Nebraska is in his top five right now. He has also visited Oregon and Texas A&M this spring. Robinson doesn’t have any specific plans for visits but will probably hit a few schools but will be focused on training for the most part.
Expect Robinson to be an official visitor in Lincoln this fall.
