Florida secondary coach Travaris Robinson, a rising star in the coaching profession, was recognized Tuesday for his recruiting efforts.
Rivals.com named Robinson one of the top 25 recruiters in the 2014 cycle.
A Florida assistant has now received that honor for three consecutive years. UF defensive coordinator D.J. Durkin made the list last year and was Rivals’ national recruiter of the year in 2012.
Despite losing three South Florida commitments, Robinson was still responsible for more than a fourth of the Gators’ signees this past Wednesday.
Here is the excerpt on him from the Rivals.com story:
Buzz: Florida made headlines with its ability to land big names down the stretch despite a lackluster season and nobody deserves more credit for the late push than Robinson. He helped land five-star Jalen Tabor even after the defensive back committed to Arizona during the Under Armour All-America Game and then finished things off on Signing Day with the flip of Rivals100 quarterback Treon Harris from rival Florida State. He also kept the commitment of Rivals250 defensive back J.C. Jackson despite some signs that he might flip from the Gators, and landed four-star Quincy Wilson early and held him until the end. Other impressive signees recruited by Robinson include defensive back Duke Dawson, four-star defensive tackle Khairi Clark and offensive weapon Brandon Powell.
