Karl Dorrell has a long history with the Colorado Buffaloes. He knows that to succeed at recruiting in-state for the Buffs, you need to get the big and good athletes, wherever they are. After locking up Heritage High School tight end Erik Olsen, Darrin Chiaverini and Karl Dorrell went back to the friendly borders of the Centennial State to grab Ty Robinson.
Tad Boyle and Karl Dorrell must be fast friends. Robinson, along with QB commit Drew Carter, are legit P5 prospects in basketball as well as football. Luckily for the football side, they’ve both decide to focus on the gridiron moving forward. Ty is a WR by trade at Eaglecrest High School in Colorado, with a frame to do it. He is 6’4 and shy of 200 pounds. He had some big offers in both sports, and the Buffs beat out Utah, KSU, Kansas, and CSU for his pledge.
His tape, in both basketball and football, showcases an explosive leaper. He has a big frame for a wideout, and with his vertical ability, he can go up and get just about any ball. If the DB is smaller, he will win the one-on-one fight for the ball every single time. He takes long strides and doesn’t have the quickness in and out of breaks that smaller receivers have, but he has straight line speed and knows how to position his body. Frankly, it looks like the Eaglecrest playbook was Backyard Football “run deep and chuck it” last year because of how often Ty Robinson wins jump balls. In college, he will need to refine those routes. Luckily, he has two of the best WR coaches working to help him out in Chiaverini and Dorrell.
