Duck Football Recruiting: Seeing Double

Duck Football Recruiting: Seeing Double
January 25, 2013, 1:00 pm

Oregon is seeing double in twins Tyree and Tyrell Robinson from Lincoln High School in San Diego, California. The highly sought after Robinson twins committed to Oregon back in September for both football and basketball. However, since Chip Kelly announced last week that he is leaving the Ducks to join the NFL with the Philadelphia Eagles, the twins have re-opened their recruiting process.

Although Oregon is still in the mix of schools that they are considering, the twins visited USC over Martin Luther King weekend, and will be heading to Ohio State and Washington in the next two weeks.

Ranked among the top ten “athletes” on Maxpreps.com for football and as strong recruits in basketball, both have plenty to bring to Oregon athletics.

At 6’3” and 190 pounds, Tyree played wide receiver and defensive back in high school. In the 2012 season, he had 319 receiving yards, 62 points and 40 solo tackles, proving that he is strong on both ends of the field. Oregon football hopes to have him as a safety, but his diversity of skills allows for future change of position.

Tyree is currently sidelined for the next six weeks of his senior season of basketball at Lincoln due to a broken foot. However, prior to his injury Tyree averaged 22 points per game and 4 assists between point guard and shooting guard.

Tyrell, 6’4” and 205 pounds, played linebacker and wide receiver in high school and was recruited to play outside linebacker at Oregon. In his 2012 season, Tyrell averaged 8.5 tackles per game and totaled 68 solo tackles.

Averaging 14 points, 5 assists and 4 rebounds per game so far his senior season, shooting guard and forward Tyrell has been a key player for Lincoln basketball while his brother is hurt.

While neither twin knows their potential spot on the roster as of late, Oregon basketball head coach David Altman has confirmed that both boys will be playing for him next year if they sign with Oregon.
