Notre Dame Recruiting 2013: Corey Robinson Becomes Sixth Irish Commitment

Notre Dame Fighting Irish head coach Brian Kelly continued to make waves across the recruiting landscape on Tuesday, reeling in his sixth commitment for the 2013 class. The pledge came from San Antonio, Texas wide receiver Corey Robinson, who chose the Irish over the Kansas Jayhawks, North Carolina Tar Heels and Wake Forest Demon Deacons.

Robinson is no ordinary Robinson, though; he's the son of NBA Hall of Famer David Robinson. As you'd expect, the younger Robinson has very good size for his position (6' 4", 200 pounds) though it does come at the expense of his speed. Here is SB Nation's Bud Elliott's analysis of Robinson:

Robinson does not have elite speed, but does jump fairly well. Robinson did not grow up playing football, and has only played for a few years. As a junior, he made first team all-state, albeit in a small conference. Robinson's skills fit well with Notre Dame's field, which often makes it tough to get separation and forces receivers to take to the air.
