Branson Robinson is an absolute stud. The running back from Germantown High School in Madison, Mississippi, is a four-star prospect who relies on a combination of strength and speed to sneak past defenders.
Robinson still has a full year of high school left, but he can already bench press a whopping 415 pounds. In other words, he’s a weightlifting machine.
4-Star RB Branson Robinson Recruiting
To date, Robinson has received offers from the likes of Alabama, Clemson, Georgia, Tennessee, LSU, Auburn, Florida State, Georgia Tech, Michigan, Mississippi State, Ole Miss, Oregon, Penn State, TCU, and USC.
In April 2021, he revealed his top five, which included the Alabama Crimson Tide, Clemson Tigers, Georgia Bulldogs, LSU Tigers, and Tennessee Volunteers.
That top five may narrow even more. The Dawgs are looking like favorites to sign Robinson, and he may be spending his college career in Athens. UGA has been the home of several standout running backs in recent years, and many of them have gone onto have NFL success.
The NCAA is lifting its restrictions on official visits, so Robinson will get a better sense of where he wants to attend college soon.
Branson Robinson Highlights
According to the 247Sports Composite, Robinson is a four-star player. He’s already stronger than most of his peers on the field, so if he can continue to look explosive during his senior season, it wouldn’t be surprising to see his rating jump up to a five-star designation.
In 2020, Robinson generated nearly 1,200 rushing yards on 121 carries and scored 15 touchdowns. He even reached the end zone once more on a reception.
Naturally, Robinson is a gifted athlete, and he’s used his speed to dominate on his high school track team as well. As a sophomore, he ran the 100-meter dash in 11.41 seconds.
Branson Robinson doesn’t have a college football destination just yet, but it’s becoming clear that he’ll land with a CFP contender.
Not many running backs are as strong as he is, so it will be interesting how that brawn will translate to the Division I level.
