Gamecocks add 5th O-line pledge

Offensive lineman Corey Robinson of Havelock, N.C. became South Carolina’s 12th commitment for 2010 on Tuesday, when he announced a pledge to the Gamecocks during a gathering at his school.

“I like the coaches, and there’s the chance to play in the SEC with great players,” Robinson said. “I didn’t know much about them but they are bringing in coach (Eric) Wolford, and he had to come in having proven himself that he can develop players, and I think it will be great to work with him.”

Robinson (6-7, 290) said his commitment will be a firm one.

“If a North Carolina school came calling, I would take a look,” he said. “But it wouldn’t be a hard look.”

South Carolina is Robinson’s only offer though he’s also drawn interest from North Carolina, NC State, East Carolina and Duke. Robinson will play tackle for the Gamecocks. He is the fifth offensive lineman committed in the class.
