Could Robinson be the next Spartan?

Michigan State hosted cornerback Ezra Robinson of Sarasota Booker High School on an official visit this weekend. SpartanMag.com has some details on his visit and whether he could become the 15th member of the class of 2012.

The 6-foot-0, 175-pound Robinson has over 15 scholarship offers on the table from teams such as Michigan State, Georgia Tech, North Carolina, Illinois, West Virginia, Purdue and Boston College. Rivals.com rates him a 3-star recruit and the #51 cornerback prospect in the nation for the class of 2012.

Robinson traveled up to East Lansing on Saturday morning and was able to take in the entire game day atmosphere at Michigan State University. He posted on Facebook:

"Just took a walk with Coach Dantonio before the ESPN Gameday, once in a life time experience."

SpartanMag.com spoke with Robinson after his visit and he gave us some details about his time at Michigan State University.

"It was extremely amazing," Robinson said. "I loved it there and did not want to leave. The win over Wisconsin was an incredible game and the fans were crazy."

As SpartanMag.com has stated in the past, Michigan State does not have a lot of scholarship room left for the class of 2012. The fact that the Spartan staff hosted Robinson on an official visit for the game against the Badgers shows that he is one of the few players they are seriously considering for those final spots. We asked him about the idea of making his college choice.

"It (committing) is something that I am seriously considering," Robinson state.d Coach Dantonio said that he is going to come down and meet my family. He talked with me about how I would fit into the program and how they do things at Michigan State. Coach Barnett is my primary recruiter and he will be coming down too."

Robinson was hosted on his visit by fellow Floridian Jairus Jones. Jones played his high school football just up the road from Sarasota in Tampa, Florida. As many Spartan fans know, Michigan State has a strong history of recruiting Sarasota Booker High School. Former Spartan players such as Cedric Henry, Jason Bradley and Marcus Waters all attended Saarsota and committed to Michigan State when Coach Dantonio was an assistant at Michigan State. Coach Dantonio would certainly like to see that tradition get started again.

SpartanMag.com will be sure to keep in contact with Robinson in the near future. Michigan State is winning games by using a dominating defense. Robinson was very impressed with what he saw on Saturday night, and could be the next talented recruit to join the Spartan family.
