Atlanta’s Dez Robinson Offered By Incarnate Word
Atlanta senior linebacker Dez Robinson continues to attract Division I college football programs. The latest was Incarnate Word.
Robinson (6-3, 210) announced that Incarnate Word extended an offer Tuesday night through his Twitter account.
He was the third player from East Texas' 2017 recruiting class to pick up an offer from UIW on Tuesday, joining Longview's Traveion Webster and Wills Point's Sloan Rodberg.
For Robinson, who holds FBS offers from UTEP and Wyoming, Incarnate Word became the third FCS program to target him, joining Stephen F. Austin and Sam Houston State.
Incarnate Word, located in San Antonio, competes in the Southland Conference and is under the direction of fifth-year coach Larry Kennan.
The Cardinals began their football program in 2009 as a Division II independent, but became full-fledged Division I FCS participants prior to the 2014 season. Incarnate Word was 3-8 overall and 3-6 in league play in 2016.
Robinson and teammate, fellow linebacker Tristan Allen (Louisiana Tech commit), were key cogs on the Atlanta defense in 2016. The Rabbits finished the year at 6-4, just missing out on the Class 4A Division II playoffs.
Like all college football prospects currently in their senior year of high school, Robinson will become eligible to sign with any school that offers him in February.
