All spring and summer, when football fans talked about some of the top prospects in the state of Florida, the name Josh Robinson popped up at camps, 7-on-7 tournaments and other events that promoted high school football talent.
On Monday, Robinson, the Plantation defensive back standout, who also made a solid impact on offense, announced that he was committing to the University of Central Florida, a place he visited with teammate Brandon McGee back in May.
"From the first time I met the coaches, saw the campus and had the chance to see what the school was like, I was sold," Robinson said. "It's a prefect fit for me, and it's close enough to home where all my family and friends can come and watch."
Robinson is the third Plantation athlete to verbally commit this fall. McGee made his announcement right before the season to attend the University of Miami, and last week, safety Vlad Emelien announced that he would be headed to Michigan.
Robinson selected the Golden Knights over West Virginia, South Florida, FIU, South Carolina, Florida and Michigan, and will join 2009 commits Corey Ammons (Archbishop Carroll), Dontravious Floyd (South Dade), Renato Cunha (Jackson) and Jarrett Swaby (Glades Day) from South Florida.
