Robinson Becoming Comfortable With Offense

Sitting inside "the bubble" yesterday (we have to come up with a better name for that facility) I couldn't help but notice the strides freshman receiver Gerell Robinson has made since the beginning of camp.

His athleticism has been on full display since the first day of fall practice, but now his intelligence for the game is beginning to catch up with his freak skills.

I got a chance to talk to him after practice and he said he is becoming much more comfortable with the offense and the different schemes they are running.

"I am the point where I know when I mess up right when it happens as opposed to not knowing anything about it until the coaches tell me afterwards."

On the defensive side of the ball junior Terell Carr has also come a long way in camp and looks to be solidifying himself as the best choice for starter in the corner spot opposite Omar Bolden. Suffering from a case of the drops earlier in camp, Carr has been more advantageous with his time including an impressive pick yesterday that elicited a chorus of "Atta way T-Carr" shouts from his teammates in the secondary.

The team will get their first taste of Sun Devil stadium this fall during the "Fan Appreciation Night" scrimmage at 7:00.
