With National Signing Day approaching for 2010 next month, it's time to start looking at recruiting for 2011. Among the positions that Florida State will need is Defensive Back. Robenson Therezie is one of the better defensive backs from Miami for 2011. He's mentored and coached by Jon Drummond (genron), who was the defensive backs coached at the 2010 Under-Armour game. Consistent with trend in college football of recruiting kids earlier and earlier each year, Florida State has already offered Robensen.
Immediately when talking to Robenson, he comes off as a mature kid. He registers 5'10", 185 lbs. The last time he was clocked, he reported a 4.39 speed. As for the position he's going to play in college, he is unsure, but he plays both running back as well as safety in High School. His stats from the 2009 season are 81 total tackles, 9 forced fumbles as well as 3 interceptions.
Rumor has it that Therezie was a Gator fan growing up. That doesn't seem to be the whole story. When asked what his team was growing up, he said: "I was a big fan of all the schools. UM. Florida. Florida State." Despite the offer from Florida State and other schools, he says he has not received too much attention from any schools. Look for that to change as teams shift their focus from 2010 to 2011 recruiting.
When it comes to wants in a college, he seemed very interested in a big program. "I want to go to a big program with playing time and a great campus," Therezie said. He was also quick to note that he was big on academics as well as a family atmosphere. "I want to attend a school that helps with my needs. That's very important to me." As for what he plans to major to, he said: "I'm not yet decided. I'm leaning toward business and technology." I've included some film after the jump...
What's next for Miami Jackson's DB/RB? He's planning on visiting camps this summer. No idea yet as to what camps he plans to visit. One would suspect he could end up at FSU's Seminole Showcase or Florida's FNL. Look for Robenson to be a leader for Miami Jackson, as Miami-Dade once again proves itself to be the most fertile high school football area in the nation.
Therezie is currently ranked 40th best player in South Florida, according to Luke Stampini of SoFlafootball.com. He has yet to be ranked by Rivals or ESPN as it is still early in the evaluation process.
