ets.” Walraven said Saturday was also a monumental moment for Cleburne High School. “I never got to coach Reggie but it’s like I’ve known him my whole life because I was rooting for him,” Walraven said. “I don’t normally watch the draft all the way through, but I’ve been glued to the TV in anticipation. “It was awesome for a lot of us seeing him go to Dallas. I think that’s a very cool deal. I’m super proud of him and his family and what he’s done to represent Cleburne. I hope our guys see this as some inspiration and motivation for themselves.” Robinson is the first Tulsa player drafted since 2011, and his Golden Hurricane teammate, defensive lineman Trevis Gipson, joined him as a fifth-round selection to the Chicago Bears on Saturday. Earlier this year, Robinson became the first Tulsa defensive back in nearly 50 years to receive an invite to the Senior Bowl, where his performance in Mobile, Alabama resulted in an invite to the NFL Scouting Combine. At the Scouting Combine in Indianapolis, Robinson continued improving his draft positioning by putting up elite numbers in events like the 40-yard dash, vertical jump, bench press and broad jump. By most accounts, Robinson was the most well-rounded cornerback prospect coming out of the Scouting Combine. Additionally, Robinson reportedly had the highest score (32) on the Wonderlic Test out of all defensive prospects this year. In his senior season, Robinson led Tulsa with four interceptions, 13 pass break-ups, and 17 passes defensed, which also led the American Athletic Conference and was among the leaders in the nation. He also recorded 38 tackles, two fumble recoveries, and a blocked kick (the fourth of his college career). Robinson allowed only one touchdown all season in 2019 and received first-team All- AAC honors. Robinson, who will graduate from the University of Tulsa with degrees in organizational studies and media, was a multiple-time all-district and All-Johnson County selection for Cleburne High School as a three-year letterman under former Yellow Jacket Head Coach Jeff Merket.
