So much for the “Little Admiral.”
Corey Robinson, a 6-foot-4, sure-handed wide receiver at San Antonio Christian High School, has committed to play football at Notre Dame next season, according to multiple reports. The son of Naval Academy grad and Basketball Hall of Famer David Robinson, Corey had considered following his father’s path to Annapolis, albeit in a different sport. This Sports Illustrated piece outlines the younger Robinson’s decision-making process — one that steered him away from the academy as the interest from top-tier football programs mounted.
Aside from Navy and Notre Dame, ESPN.com reports the soon-to-be
plebe freshman had offers from Iowa, Kansas, North Carolina and Wake Forest. Check out some video here, including an interview with the future Golden Domer.
