More on Robinson

Did he want to become a Bulldog? Did Fresno State offer him a scholarship? Why did he choose Utah State? Does it matter now? He is an Aggie and Fresno State must account for him Saturday.

Hindsight is 20/20, Robinson was overshadowed by Clifton Smith in the fall of 2002, both were two way players in high school. They were outstanding on offense, but were mainly recruited by colleges to play defensive back. Smith transformed into the mega return man extrodinaire before his season ending injury this year, while Robinson has become the same for Utah State.

Would Robinson have had the same impact so early on in his career with the Bulldogs?

Who knows, but I hate see local kids leave and excel at other non-BCS schools, when Fresno State is in their own backyard. A lower level, under the radar talent should always become a Bulldog if offered, but I can understand if the 3, 4, or 5 star recruit wants to leave for the Pac 10.
