BREAKING: 4-star RB Roderick Robinson II is now a ‘Dawg!

Want to attack every day with the latest Georgia football recruiting info? That’s the Intel. This rep has the latest with 4-star RB Roderick Robinson. He ranks as the nation’s No. 20 RB and the No. 270 overall prospect for 2023 on the 247Sports Composite ratings.


“Go Dawgs!”

That’s what 4-star RB Roderick Robinson was saying after he left Athens this weekend.

The Bulldogs took advantage of Robinson’s first-ever trip to check out Athens. Mix in some priority recruiting of late and that was the formula that allowed the ‘Dawgs to also steam past Texas A&M and flip Robinson’s commitment away from UCLA.

UCLA is still undefeated on the football field in 2022. That said, the Bruins suffered a heavy loss on the recruiting trail over the weekend with the loss of Robinson.

Georgia running backs coach Dell McGee had never gone into October without a commitment for his room in any of his previous recruiting classes for Georgia under Kirby Smart.

Robinson flipped that status over the weekend during his official visit with his family.

“After much prayer and discussion with my family, I have decided to recommit from UCLA football and commit to UGA football,” he said in his commitment tweet. “I am so grateful to UCLA and the many other schools for offering me the opportunity to further extend my education and continue my football career. However, I felt that UGA was the right fit for me. I will be officially shutting down my recruitment. Go ‘Dawgs!”

The transition will not be that tough for Robinson. His father grew up in Alabama and he has a lot of family in South Carolina. He moved to California from Greenville for his sophomore year in high school.

What is Georgia getting here in Robinson? Well, the assessment from Coach Dunn will certainly carry a lot of weight. His head coach at Lincoln High in California played seven seasons in the NFL as a wide receiver and kick returner.

“He’s putting it all together right now,” Lincoln coach David Dunn said. “To where he’ll run through you and square those shoulders up and he will run you over with the power game. Then he also his feet are so quick he will set you up and he will take off on you and you didn’t know he had that gear. He’ll spin and change directions and he is running away from people at 230 pounds and that’s very impressive.”

A few more things to know about Roderick Robinson

Robinson is described as having great character. There are numerous examples to support that intel.

“What keeps me going in football is I am not only playing for myself,” he said over the summer. “I am playing for my family. I am playing for my teammates that line up on the ball with me and just the fun of the game and everything that comes with it.”

He played outfield for his high school baseball team this spring. He did so while helping to coach the girls’ soccer team and the girls’ Powder Puff football team.

“His character just shows that he has a spark about him,” Dunn said. “Everything is ‘yes sir and no sir’ and ‘yes ma’am and no ma’am’ and it doesn’t matter if you are the head coach or the security guard or the custodian. Just very genuine. Same thing with the teachers. Kids will label teachers. This teacher is hard. This teacher is hard to get along with. They end up being Roderick’s favorite teacher.”

Robinson could have graduated in the spring. He’s already taking college credit classes this fall.

The dream is for him to reach the NFL. He aspires to study kinesiology in college.

He says that seeing California guys like Brock Bowers, JT Daniels, Earnest Greene III and Milton come to Georgia and find success means something to him.

“It definitely makes you think I can do it, too,” Robinson said this summer. “It is not easy being far from home but for me, I still have family all in South Carolina still. So it definitely wouldn’t be that bad being that far away from home for me. Definitely seeing those guys go out and do it and overachieve while definitely being far from home does give me a little motivation that I could do it, too.”
