GAINESVILLE -- The Demarcus Robinson hype-train is rapidly approaching maximum velocity.
The 6-foot-2, 201-pound receiver is just a freshman, yet Robinson has already been tabbed Florida’s savior at a position starved for playmakers.
Good luck, kid.
“I'm not appointing him the greatest thing on Earth yet because he's got to play a game,” offensive coordinator Brent Pease said. “But I know he’s worked at his skill, and I think he’s understanding what his opportunity and job is on each play.”
Robinson, who enrolled early in January, has starred in both spring and fall camp, electrifying teammates, coaches and fans with his physical frame and downfield explosiveness.
Expectations were already high for Robinson, a four-star prospect from Peach County (Ga). Now they’re getting higher.
