Sam Houston State Offers Atlanta’s Dez Robinson
While Atlanta senior linebacker Dez Robinson awaits a Division I FBS offer from a school closer to home, local FCS programs continue to make their pitch.
Sam Houston State became the latest school to target Robison (6-3, 210), he announced on Twitter, Monday evening.
In addition to the Bearkats, Robinson has an FCS offer from fellow Southland Conference program Stephen F. Austin. Robinson's two FBS opportunities are from UTEP and Wyoming, which are a combined 1,900 miles from Atlanta.
Sam Houston is among the best FCS programs in the country. The Bearkats were 12-1 in 2016, falling to James Madison last Friday in the FCS quarterfinals.
Since 2011, Sam Houston State is 68-20 and has played for two national championships. The Bearkats are 34-10 in three seasons under coach K.C. Keeler.
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.
