Robinson a Tiger ... Again

First, he was a Tiger.

Demarcus Robinson once again is a Clemson commit.

Then, he wasn't.

Now, he is again.

The wild ride of four-star wide receiver Demarcus Robinson of Peach County (Ga.), the No. 186 prospect and No. 22 receiver, took another strange turn Monday when he committed back to Clemson, Peach County coach Chad Campbell confirmed with 247Sports.

Only last week, Robinson, the 6-feet-1, 196-pounder, de-committed from the Tigers and verbaled to Florida.

Over the weekend, Robinson took an official visit to Florida, and a source told Gatorbait.net that he had started to fill out paperwork so he could enroll there in January.

Instead, it appears he will be in Clemson come January.

Robinson could not be reached for comment.

For Clemson, Monday's news is huge.

The Tigers once again have three receivers committed in the class, and each has a rating of four stars. A fourth player, Jordan Leggett, is a pass-catching tight end.

One Clemson wide receiver commit, Ryan Jenkins of Marietta (Ga.) Lassiter, recently was offered by Tennessee, the school for which his father played. Jenkins initially expressed interest in the Volunteers, but told 247Sports on Sunday he no longer will comment about that situation. He said he remains committed to Clemson, but that recruitment is something to watch.

The Tigers also remain in the fold with four-star receiver MarQuez North.

Having Robinson back on board also is good for perception. He had been the third player to de-commit from Clemson since November, when No. 1 prospect Robert Nkemdiche backed off his pledge.
