Family connection makes Michigan appealing to 2022 RB Branson Robinson

All it took was film from the first two games of his junior season for Michigan running backs coach Jay Harbaugh to extend an offer to 2022 running back Branson Robinson on Monday, which just so happened to be the very first offer for Robinson to earn.

“It was great,” Robinson told Maize n Brew of his conversation with Harbaugh, which was his first ever contact with him. “He asked me questions about Michigan football and he asked more questions to get to know me.

“He seems like very great guy who takes pride for what he does, he seemed very excited.”

The 5-foot-11, 210-pounder plays at Germantown High School in Madison, Mississippi, but just because he hails from the heart of SEC country does not mean he isn’t familiar with Ann Arbor. In fact, he already held interest in U-M and has been to Michigan Stadium before.

“My grandparents live in Michigan, so every time I visited them we went to a Michigan game,” Robinson said. “It’s an amazing atmosphere and very big with a lot of nice, die hard Michigan fans and students.”

He does not know when it will be, but Robinson does plan on visiting his grandparents and Michigan at some point this fall.

“Great campus lifestyle with a good biology program; that is all that is really required for me,” he said.

The Wolverines have offered more than 20 running backs in the 2022 cycle already, so Robinson is one of many targets the staff is going after. With this being his first offer, and with the family connection in the state of Michigan, look for the Wolverines to continue recruiting Robinson for the foreseeable future.
