CBS Sports' Rob Rang believes the "most compelling aspect" of Florida junior WR Demarcus Robinson's game "is his ability after the catch."
"Robinson isn't satisfied with just making the reception, showing the strength to break free from arm tackles and impressive stop-start quickness and agility to hamper defenders' pursuit angles. Further, though occasionally his feet will slip out from under him, Robinson shows intriguing balance to run through swipes at his legs," Rang wrote. The 6-foot-1, 197-pound Robinson led Florida with 10 receptions of 20 plus yards last season. Robinson hauled in 53 receptions for 810 yards and seven touchdowns, earning Offensive MVP honors from teammates. Aug 18 - 3:19 PM

Florida junior WR Demarcus Robinson's "talent just jumped off the tape at me and it is easy to understand why the junior receiver improved from five catches his freshman year to 53 last season," writes NFL Media draft analyst Lance Zierlein.

"Robinson is a blazing vertical threat who gives the Gators a homerun hitter on any given snap," Zierlein wrote. "Robinson has shake at the line of scrimmage to free himself against press coverage and tracks the deep ball with ease. Robinson could benefit from new head coach Jim McElwain's pro-style offense, but if the quarterback play doesn't show improvement, Robinson's statistical output might not match up with his immense talent." He ranks Robinson as the No. 5 receiver in the country. Robinson had 53 receptions for 810 yards and seven touchdowns in 2014.

Florida sophomore WR Demarcus Robinson hauled in four passes for 137 yards and two touchdowns in a victory over Eastern Kentucky on Saturday.

Robinson's presence is going to make it a lot easier for Florida's new coach to turn around the school's offense in 2015. The receivers emergence wasn't enough to save Will Muschamp's job, but hopefully Florida can find a competent QB to pair with him next year. Robinson has 43 receptions for 703 yards and seven touchdowns in 2014.

Florida sophomore WR Demarcus Robinson hauled in five passes for 104 yards and a touchdown in a loss to LSU over the weekend.

Robinson exceeded 120 receiving yards in Florida's first two games, but had only 35 yards combined over his previous two games before Saturday. Robinson is an interesting prospect with NFL size (6-foot-1, 205 pounds), but we won't get an accurate gauge of his potential until he has a competent quarterback and offensive system in place around him. When Jeff Driskel struggles, nobody gets catches, not even his No. 1 target.

Florida sophomore WR Demarcus Robinson hauled in 15 passes for 216 yards and a pair of touchdowns as the Gators staved off Kentucky 36-30 in triple overtime over the weekend.

Robinson tied Carlos Alvarez's school record for catches in a single game. He's had an eye-opening start to the season. Robinson was suspended for the opener against Idaho, which itself was suspended due to inclement weather. In the past two games, he's gone off for 21 catches, 339 yards and a pair of touchdowns. Robinson is clearly Jeff Driskel's No. 1 target. Against the Wildcats, no other receiver had more than two catches.

In his return from suspension, Florida sophomore WR Demarcus Robinson snagged six passes for 123 yards and a touchdown.

Robinson was involved in a little bit of a controversy earlier in the week when Florida coach Will Muschamp decided to reinstate he and DTs Darious Cummings and Jay-nard Bostwick from suspensions after the opener versus Idaho was suspended due to weather. It didn't seem to faze him. Robinson raced to a 70-yard touchdown on a pass from Treon Harris with 14:47 left in the fourth quarter to give the Gators a 58-0 lead. They won 65-0.

Florida coach Will Muschamp defended his decision to reinstate WR Demarcus Robinson and DTs Darious Cummings and Jay-nard Bostwick from suspension.

The trio had been suspended for the "opener." One problem: The opener, on Saturday against Idaho, was suspended due to inclement weather and declared a no-contest; the game will not be made up this season. Robinson, Cummings, and Bostwick ended up being suspended for one play. "It's not just about suspending players for games," Muschamp said on Tuesday. "There's a lot of things that go into those situations, a lot more than people know. And it's very frustrating for me as a coach ... to have someone being critical and you don't even have all the information." Bostwick and Cummings had been suspended for an undisclosed violation of team rules, while Robinson's suspension, according to Muschamp, was "due to a university sanction that is now resolved." Cummings was the only starter amongst the trio.

Florida sophomore CB Vernon Hargreaves III singled out sophomore WR Demarcus Robinson as a breakout candidate.

"You've heard here first. He is THAT good," Hargreaves said. The second year cornerback knows from experience, as Hargreaves was easily the Gators top defensive back during his first season of college football. Robinson has already created buzz during spring practices.

Florida freshman WR Demarcus Robinson has been suspended for the next two games of the season.

Robinson has been suspended three times during his career and has only registered five catches. There have been some mixed reports stating Robinson will miss the rest of the season, with others stating the next two games of non-bowl action.

Florida freshman WR Demarcus Robinson will not play against Tennessee on Saturday due to a violation of team rules.

We are still waiting for Robinson's breakout game after coaches and teammates praised his skills during practice. No details were given regarding the suspension, but Robinson has barely made an impact during his first few games on the field for the Gators.
Sat, Sep 21, 2013 01:41:00 PM

Florida offensive coordinator Brent Pease believes freshman WR Demarcus Robinson is "going to pop here soon."

Robinson has apparently been tearing it up in practice, but that has not translated to the field. He has played in two games this season, but has not recorded a catch or touch. Teammates on the defensive side of the ball have singled out Robinson, so we might see flashes in the coming weeks.

Florida junior CB Marcus Roberson called WR Demarcus Robinson the most impressive freshmen he's ever seen at the school.

That is high praise coming from a very talented corner like Roberson. Head coach Will Muschamp previously said Robinson, along with fellow freshman receiver Ahmad Fulwood, would help and improve the football team immediately. The school needs one target to emerge, since Andre Debose will miss time with an injury and corner Loucheiz Purifoy could see time on both sides of the ball.

Gators coach Will Muschamp said true freshman wide receivers Ahmad Fulwood and Demarcus Robinson will "help our football team and improve our football team."

Florida has merely 44 catches and 426 receiving yards returning amongst its receiving corps, which is good news for the talented Fulwood/Robinson duo, both of whom are four-star members of the 2013 recruiting class. Robinson, a 6-foot-2, 200-pounder, was rated the 53rd overall player in the ESPN 300. Teammates call the field-stretcher a "freak." Fulwood, who stands 6-foot-4, 189 pounds, was the No. 110 overall player on the ESPN 300. ESPN writes that he is amongst the most athletically gifted receivers in the class, and says Fulwood "possesses an ideal blend of size/strength/adequate speed."
