Robinson took a recent official visit to the school he had committed to only a few short weeks ago.
"It was sweet. I accomplished a lot. I think I'll play right away, the folks in Pittsburgh don't know yet, but they getting a playa. I was under rated most of the year. The whole chemistry at Pitt was great and all the coaches are real. You can tell they're real just by talking to them. Coach (Dave) Wannstedt told me I am an impact player. Coach Wannstedt is straight; Pitt is definitely it for me. I hung out with a few of the other recruits Nate (Byham) and (Kevin) Collier man we just all clicked."
Robinson is always optimistic about everything, especially his time at Erie community College.
"Being at a JUCO has polished my game, but I'm always willing to get better. I have been playing this game for a long time and I'm ready to take it to the next level. I was talking with coach (Paul) Rhoads about the scheme and I'm pretty familiar with it already."
