    The one thing that really encourages me is that he wanted to come on a weekend without a big football game. It sounds like this guy is being very smart instead of just looking for a good time on his visits. We shall see.

    Terry Beard on Facebook writes: When is Devin Robinson expected to announce his college choice?
    There’s been some vague reporting that Robinson “could” announce a decision this week, but it’s Thursday and no plans have been firmed up at this point. Oklahoma State and Florida have been in to visit Robinson this week at the Christchurch School (Va.) and Indiana and Notre Dame are expected to follow suit.
    I reached out to Robinson’s high school coach, Ben Thompson, earlier this week, to get his thoughts on when a decision may come. Here’s what he told me: “I don’t get any sense of urgency so that’s why I don’t get why people are jumping the gun that he’s going to make a decision right away. I don’t know when that’s coming. He’s going through the process right now without setting any kind of timetable.”
    Things can always change quickly, but as of this writing, there’s no firm plan on a timetable. – Alex Bozich

    From an AllHoosiers recruiting chat this afternoon:

    First Devin Robinson question:

    Then his view of the pros and cons of UF v. IU:

    Then a new name for the Spring maybe?

    Two more question on Robinson:

    Then a guy asks a question some here would ask:

    Here is the link in case you want to check to see if I missed anything:

    We may not land Devin, but he sounds like one savvy kid. And his being savvy means we have a chance because we do develop kids to be able to play in the NBA even if they don't initially get a good draft position (Haslem, Bonner, Parsons, Lee, etc).

    When read about his parents being so involved in the decision, I thought UF might have a real shot. Parents care about the kid, unlike other advisors who might care about what they can get out of the kid.

    I'm trying not to get too excited (Abu was all about us until a week or so before his decision, and then NC State had a chance to blow him away with their extraordinary history of recent success and deep base of current NBA alums), but the "momentum" seems to be on our side here, for however painfully little that's worth.

    His good friend committed to Indiana, Robert Johnson. We may get him, but chances have never been that good. Hopefully he wants to be like parsons, brewer, etc.

    The IU sites I look at are saying things more like this:

    and

    Of course these are just fans like us posting on a message board so who knows if they know anything or not.

    Here is the link where I found these posts:

    Found a bit today. Apparently someone reported Robinson down to UF and IU, but his coach says no:
