Impact Redshirt Freshmen Countdown: #5th – Jerald Robinson

Jerald Robinson

Ranked 5th in our Countdown of Impact Redshirt Freshman is wideout Jerald Robinson. Coming out of high school, Scout’s Allen Trieu most effectively broke down Robinson’s game:

“He is a nice sized kid who plays bigger than his listed measurements. Has good hands and can go up and make tough catches in traffic, but will lose concentration and drop easy passes at times. Is very good after the catch and can make people miss as well as break tackles. Has good, but not great speed and explosiveness.”

Robinson came to Ann Arbor and was one of 6 2010 recruits to enroll early. Jeremy Jackson and Stephen Hopkins broke through and played during their true freshmen seasons while Christian Pace and Austin White have left the program. Robinson and Ricardo Miller were the lone early enrollees to serve their redshirt seasons and remain with the team. When Robinson arrived at Michigan he was slightly undersized, but showed a lot of talent. He spent some time during the 2010 season in the doghouse but we believe he will make some plays this season and catch about 10 passes. Look for him to be a backup this season, but with four receivers in front of him graduating he will play regularly in 2012.
