After missing six weeks with a fracture in his left foot, Tyree Robinson (San Diego, Calif./Abraham Lincoln) had his cast removed Friday.
The 6-foot-3, 190-pound receiver is ready to rejoin his team, and his twin brother, Tyrell Robinson, on the football field.
“I’ve been trying to return from my injury, so I’m just trying to get ready, get healthy and get back on the field,” said Tyree, rated the No. 273 prospect on the ESPN 300.
While his brother was forced to watch from the sideline, Tyrell -- a 6-foot-3, 210-pound athlete -- has been working on “getting bigger. He’s getting faster.”
“We’re just trying to prepare for that next level,” Tyree said. “We’re just trying to have a great year and go all out.”
In addition to preparing for their final season of high school football, the brothers continue to weigh their college options. Tyree said they plan to announce their top five schools next week.
“We’re trying to see what schools we’re trying to visit right now,” Tyree said.
So far, the twins have only lined up a visit to Oregon Sept. 8 for the Ducks’ game against Fresno State.
Tyree and Tyrell, who plan to play both football and basketball in college, would also like to visit Washington this season.
“They’re top,” Tyree said. “I talk to coach [Lorenzo] Romar, coach [Steve] Sarkisian all the time. They’re really on the same page with me and my brother coming there to play both. That’s great. I plan coming up there to visit Washington, too, very soon. Washington is in the mix."
With tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins spending time on the basketball team as a freshman, the Huskies have a history when it comes to Romar and Sarkisian working together to allow athletes play both sports
“Washington, they’ve had players come through the program that have done both football and basketball,” Tyree said. “Coach Romar, he knows that we’re great basketball players and we’re also great football players. I think he really understands that we’re just natural-born athletes and he would like us to come there.
“Washington has been recruiting me and my brother since Day 1. They’ve always remained at the top.”
