Massive Lineman Gets Pitt Offer



Over the last 2 weeks, Pitt coaches have offered a ton of skill position players from Florida.  Running backs, wide receivers, cornerbacks and defensive ends, today they offered a big offensive lineman.  To say that Connor Robbins is big is an understatement.

Robbins is an offensive tackle for Menendez High School (St. Augustine, FL) and he measures in at 6-8, 328 lbs.  That’s a big boy.

“I think I might be done growing taller but I’m hoping I’ll just fill out more from now on”, said Robbins.


Despite his size, Robbins can move for a big man and that’s something that Pitt line coach John Peterson liked when watching Robbins practice in person on Thursday.

“He said he enjoyed how I can bend and move for being a bigger guy. I think my biggest strength is mostly my run blocking.  I love the power run game”, said Robbins.

“The Pitt offer was more of a surprise. Coach Peterson messaged my coach asking about me.  Then he followed me on Twitter, so within a week this all happened.”

Pitt joins Cincinnati, Maryland, Missouri, South Florida, Syracuse and Central as teams that have offered the Florida lineman.

“It’s awesome getting an ACC offer, I know it’s a great conference and I’d love to be apart of it.  Pitt is my 16th offer and I’m interested in them because of how great of a school it is, as well as their history”, said Robbins.

I asked Robbins if he’s noticed the amount of players Pitt has offered in Florida already and the recruits that they signed last year?

“Yeah, coach told me that they sighed 5 Florida players last year and that’s awesome to me because there will be people who I can relate with on and off the field.  And being farther from home won’t be that big of a problem.  I just want to be wherever I can see myself playing.”

“Pitt will hopefully be one of the visits I take. As of now, I’m not sure which schools I’ll be visiting.”
