Robinson felt the love at LSU

Robinson felt the love at LSU

Rashard Robinson gave committed to LSU while on an unofficial visit to Baton Rouge during the summer, but Saturday he was back for his official visit and to take in his first LSU gameday experience. The 2013 cornerback from Blanche Ely (Pompano Beach, FL) was on hand to watch the Tigers welcome the Crimson Tide to Death Valley at night. Get the details on Robinson's visit here.

Rashard Robinson said he loved everything about his visit, from the atmosphere, to the people, to the food.

"It was fun, we had a good time with the coaches, everybody was laughing and stuff. I had a chance to bond with all the recruits, the guys who got recruited in the secondary with me. The food was great. I just had a great time. The stadium was really loud, it was just a great experience," he said.

The 6-foot-1, 180-pound corner got to spend some time with his future LSU teammates, commits Tre'Davious White, Jeryl Brazil, Rickey Jefferson, and Jeremy Cutrer.

When Robinson first committed to the Tigers on his visit, he was most impacted by the instant family at LSU – something he experienced again on his visit.

"The players and everyone just showed brotherly love, the coaches, they were like fathers to me, everyone was happy to see me and I just felt the love, it was a genuine love," he said.

The hype couldn't have been bigger for the game itself. LSU welcomed top ranked Alabama. To Death Valley. At night. The stakes were high and Robinson said the atmosphere reflected that.

"It was crazy. There was such a high-power energy with everything. A lot of people were out there, they were having fun. LSU fans, I love them. I love them to death, because win, lose, or draw, they're going to be out there one-hundred percent," he said.

"That was a hard-fought game. Both teams had a great performance. LSU, they played up to their potential, a lot of people thought they were going to get blown out."

When watching the game, Robinson was especially excited to see how he'll be able to fit into the LSU secondary and contribute at the next level.

"They played a lot of freshmen, their rotation is crazy. It's one play you're in, one play you're out. They do a lot of subbing in and out, so I'll have a lot of chances to go out there and make big plays and probably be the next face at LSU," he said.

Robinson plans to take another visit or two but has nothing set up right now and remains solid to the Tigers.
