They’re coming in a flurry.

Cleo Robinson, a defensive end from Paul VI in Haddonfield, NJ, has made an oral commitment to play football at the University of Louisville. The 6-foot-11/2, 220-pound Robinson said he informed the Louisville coaches Friday.

He told the Philadelphia Inquirer:

“Louisville had my major in engineering, which was a plus,” said Robinson, who carries a 3.8 grade-point average. “Plus it’s a good conference, good football program, and I feel a great opportunity.”

Robinson, a first-team all-Burlco/Olympic Conference Patriot Division choice on defense, also plays tight end but said that Louisville recruited him to be a linebacker.

Robinson said he also was considering Rutgers, Maryland, Temple, Pitt, Villanova, Penn and Harvard.

  1. Any word on what kind of engineering? I’m a Speed grad and MEng student… engineering is tough, so I hope he can make it. If not, I’m sure he’ll be like about 10-25% of freshmen and use Speed as “pre-business”. 🙂
