Early Signing Period 2018: Ray Robinson is Officially a Colorado Buffalo

The thumping safety makes it official.

NCAA Football: Arizona State at Colorado Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

Well, if this class is any indication, Coach MacIntyre wants some hitters in his secondary. Ray Robinson is great in coverage and near the line of scrimmage, but he is special at the defense’s main job - tackling.

Robinson is a local recruit, playing at Highlands Ranch High School in South Denver. He had a stellar junior campaign, but unfortunately his senior campaign was derailed by an ACL tear. By all accounts, he’s healthy, and he’s enrolling early, giving him even more time with CU’s medical staff to get to work.

Let’s get to back to what Robinson on the field. Usually, he brings the hurt. At 6’2 and over 200 pounds, he’s bigger than 80% of Colorado high school players, and with I would wager that he is the fastest in the state at that size. He shows some great athleticism and ball skills as a receiver, and when he plays safety, he displays the physicality. When he hits you, you move backwards. He is another versatile DB for CU, as he could play Buffbacker, safety, or linebacker if he bulks up enough. His athleticism will be a boon on special teams, too.

Welcome, Ray!
