Wide receiver Earnest Robinson picks Auburn

Posted by Bryan Fischer

Although their in-state rival has received plenty of attention, Auburn has done a very good job on the recruiting trail early in the process and the Tigers added to their class on Saturday with the commitment of Pinson (Ala.) wide receiver Earnest Robinson.

“I committed today,” Robinson told 247Sports. “I’m coming down to Auburn and going to be part of the family. I’m an Auburn Tiger now."

The 6-foot-3, 200-pounder held offers from Alabama, Florida State and Oregon among others and was one of the most productive receivers in the state last year. Robinson's relationship with Auburn assistant Trooper Taylor and other staff members was one of the key reasons he is staying close to home however.

“I really love Troop He’s like my family, like my dad," the wide out said. "He’ll take care of me and be on me hard about my education. (Coach Tommy) Thigpen is just like my dad. He’s cool, laid back. I can talk to them about anything."

Robinson's commitment bumps Auburn's class of 2013 up to four and follows on the heels of landing punter Jimmy Hutchinson earlier in the week. He is the first offensive player to commit since the hiring of offensive coordinator Scot Loeffler and caught 12 touchdowns on just 30 catches last season as a junior.

Impressive visitor list in Tuscaloosa for LSU-ALA



Posted by Bryan Fischer

Just a few weeks ago, recruitniks were impressed with the quality and quantity of high level recruits that were in South Bend for the USC-Notre Dame game. Several people termed it Brian Kelly's 'Super Bowl.'

This Saturday is college football's actual Recruiting Super Bowl (well, not actual Super Bowl but as close as one gets in the regular season). On the sidelines, a truly star-studded cast, topping the century mark in terms of number of official and unofficial visitors. Though Nick Saban and his staff will no doubt be occupied with the team in purple and gold, they'll be spending some time hosting the biggest recruiting weekend Tuscaloosa has seen in years.

The biggest visitor coming in is five-star safety Landon Collins. Both LSU and Alabama are battling for his services but it will be tough to lure him out-of-state. A big win over the Tigers and an impressive visit however, might be enough to leave a lasting impression that will pay off on Signing Day. Collins isn't the only five-star or big name headed in for the game though, as illustrated by the partial list below.
