Texas Commit A'Shawn Robinson Showing Well At The Opening

A'Shawn Robinson first spoke up about his recruitment by saying that he is fully committed to the Texas Longhorns while at the Nike's The Opening which he has been blowing up and performing well against the top recruits in the nation. Robinson was also receiving coaching from Ndamukong Suh which can never hurt.

SB Nation's recruiting analyst Wescott Ebberts is on the scene at The Opening and spoke with Robinson about his experience at the event:

"My experience is going good. I'm matching up well with the other athletes out here. We'll all doing great, trying to beat each other, but also make each other better."

Both during and after the linemen drills and competitions, Robinson and Suh have been nearly inseparable, with the Texas commit among several plays who have clearly gone out of their way to soak up as much knowledge as possible.

"Getting the tips from him is really great. I can take it back to high school, use it right now. Using the techniques that he's teaching us, they work to perfection. Everything he tells you, you should do it, because it's the perfect technique and you should win your battle if you use it well.

Robinson elaborated on what he likes about Texas:

"It's the coaches, the staff, the environment," said the Arlington Heights product. "I'm from Texas and people say all the good things about the University of Texas and I wasn't sure, but it doesn't get any better than down at Texas."

He also reiterated his simple message regarding the status of his pledge.

"It's good -- I'm 100%," he said.
