The Texas Longhorns continue to evaluate at the running back position in the 2020 class, with the Sugar Bowl aftermath producing a Wednesday offer for Tucson (Ari.) Salpointe Catholic standout Bijan Robinson, according to multiple reports out of Arizona.
The 6’0, 200-pounder now holds 15 offers, including Alabama, LSU, Michigan, Ohio State, Oklahoma, USC, UCLA, and Washington. The Bruins are considered the early favorite, but it’s obviously still early in the process for Robinson and that interest does suggest that he’s likely to leave the state for his college football career. Robinson does have ties to the Los Angeles area because he trains there in the offseason.
An opposing coach put Robinson in the discussion as the state’s best player, no small compliment given the presence of Texas wide receiver Jake Smith, who was recently honored as the Gatorade National Player of the Year.
A consensus four-star prospect, Robinson is ranked as the No. 39 player nationally, the No. 6 running back, and the No. 3 prospect in Arizona, according to the 247Sports Composite rankings.
