New Jersey CB John Robinson IV is officially a UConn Husky!

New, comment

This could be the next great in a great line of UConn defensive backs.

John Robinson IV, a Cornerback from Englewood, New Jersey, has officially signed his Letter of Intent to play for Bob Diaco and the UConn Huskies. Rated as a three-star recruit according to ESPN, Robinson displays good size, length, foot quickness and speed in order to match up with bigger and smaller receivers. He is tough, athletic, and has good instincts, and once he gets some playing time under his belt, he could be a very solid contributor to this secondary.

Robinson chose UConn because of academics and the coaching staff, and has some pretty lofty goals for where the program is headed, something that all Husky fans can get behind.

1. What position(s) did you play in high school and what are you planning on playing at UConn?

In High School I played all over. My primary position was cornerback, but I was the team's leading receiver and I also punted and held field goals.

2. What made you choose UConn over the other options you had?

I chose UConn because academically the school can compete with the nation's best. Also the coaching staff didn't sell me a pipe dream.  They kept it honest with me and made me want to take my abilities to the school.

3. Favorite workout pump-up song right now?

Probably "Blessed" by Big Sean ft. Drake and Kanye West ; Any song by Rae Sremmurd or "Trap Queen" by Fetty Wap

4. What are your goals for yourself and the team during your time at UConn?

My ultimate goal at UConn is to win a national championship and bring the football team back to its winning ways.

5. What are you most excited for this coming fall?

Starting the next chapter in my life and being able to live out my childhood dream of playing Division 1 football.

6. Anything else you would like to add?

I grew up raised by a single mother and I want to be a guy that shows other African-American boys like myself that success is always possible with drive and faith in those who support you.
