*stats from Aidan Robbins HUDL page
He picked UofL over arch rival UK, Purdue, Vandy, and Missouri. He is the first of a bunch of high level talent in the city of Louisville to choose to stay home to play his college ball.
Aidan averaged 16 carries a game last season and 3.8 yards a carry per maxpreps. He also did not fumble the ball once. Strong, durable, powerful, with excellent ball security, Aidan Robbins will be a feature back that can wreak havoc on opposing defenders.
UofL Football Is Trying To Win The State In 2019: Aidan Robbins Commitment May Set The Victory In Motion
Just about every coach in the NCAA wants to take care of home first (from basketball to soccer). They all speak about how important it is to win the recruiting battle and keep the good and special players home. The same goes for Louisville’s Bobby Petrino, Pete Nochta, Ryan Beard, and the rest of the coaching staff.
This year is no different; especially with all the talented young men coming from the state just within the 2019 class. This class arguably has the talent to rival any class to come before it: the 2003 class (Michael Bush), 2004 class (Brian Brohm and Mario Urrutia) and the 2013 class (James Quick, Kyle Bolin and Jason Hatcher).
Today at 1:45 pm, 3 Star RB Aidan Robbins will be choosing the college he will continue his football playing career at. What many may wonder is what kind of player would UofL be getting? What style of RB is he? Can he contribute immediately? Well, let’s delve a bit into what Aidan Robbins will bring to UofL should he commit.
His Power and Strength
Aidan is as powerful a RB as you will find anywhere in the country. He’s a professional tackle breaker; a player you will see collect a ton of yards after contact. He’s a throw back to the types of RBs Bobby Petrino used to bring in. Robbins body and frame appear ready for the rigors of the ACC. I wouldn’t doubt he could get playing time as a freshman depending on what UofL’s depth looks like at RB.
