Trainer: 2020 WR Justin Robinson's Upside Immense

Justin Robinson‍ has attracted the attention of many top college programs already, but his trainer believes the 2020 Georgia athlete’s best days are ahead of him.

“He’s a little different being almost 6-5, 210 pounds,” Robinson’s personal wide receiver coach, Terrence Edwards said.

“His hand-eye coordination is off the charts. He’s a true receiver. Right now, because he’s so tall, we’re working on being able to bend and get in and out of breaks, but that kid really has an upside that he doesn’t even know yet.

“He’s only played varsity one year just because he tore his ACL as a sophomore. As a junior, this was his first year really playing varsity. You’ll see another jump as a senior and once he gets to college and has a full-time receivers coach, he’s going to become special.”

Edwards was a star receiver at Georgia from 1999-2002. After a season with the Atlanta Falcons, he went on to have an extremely successful career n the Canadian Football League, so he knows what he’s talking about.

Eagles Landing Christian Academy head coach Jonathan Gess said he views Robinson as a football player rather than a receiver and Edwards agrees.

“Exactly,” said Edwards.

Off the field, Edwards says Robinson’s personality is “very quiet.”

“He just goes about his business,” the trainer said. “He’s a football player. He can care less if he catches one ball or 20 balls. As long as his team is winning and he’s doing his job, that’s gratifying to him. He’s a hard worker. I’ve had him since the eighth grade. The sky is the limit for him, it really is.”

After receiving an offer from Notre Dame late last month, Robinson is scheduled to be in South Bend this weekend for the Irish’s Junior Day.

He also has offers from schools like Georgia, Florida, Florida State, Tennessee, West Virginia, Penn State, Kentucky and Virginia among others.
