Robinson commits to Southeastern La.
Amory wide receiver Dario Robinson has verbally committed to Southeastern Louisiana after making an official visit there two weeks ago.
Robinson chose Southeastern Louisiana from a group of offers which include Illinois, Tennessee Martin, Middle Tennessee, Arkansas State and Alcorn State.
Robinson said he was sold on the school after his weekend visit.
““I liked everything about my visit there. I felt like it was a place I could be and enjoy myself,” Robinson said. “I went down there last weekend, and they just sold me so I committed to them. I think it’s going to be a real good school for me.”
Robinson was named Division 1-4A Offensive Most Valuable Player, a Daily Journal All-Area selection and first-team All-State after leading the Panthers in rushing last season with 117 carries for 1,021 yards and 10 TDs and also catching 52 passes for 801 yards, good for second on the team.
He led the state in receiving his junior season with 2,191 yards and 21 TDs.
Robinson will be coached by former Delta State coach Ron Roberts. The Lions went 5-6 last season, 5-2 in the Southland Conference.
Robinson is the second Amory receiver to play for the Hammond, La. school, following former Panthers and Itawamba CC receiver Chris Wilson.
Robinson will sign on Feb. 6, which is National Signing Day.
