As a Recruit
Duce Robinson is one of the true two-sport stars in the Class of 2023. Along with his accolades in football, Robinson is also heavily courted in baseball and is a potential MLB prospect. Robinson has more than a dozen high-level baseball offers. Robinson -- who grew up watching Aaron Judge in baseball and Julio Jones and Davante Adams in football -- credits his father, Dominic Robinson, for developing him into the person he is. “I’m super fortunate to have him because he played at such a high level, and now he can teach and coach at such a high level,” Robinson told The Athletic. His father was also a two-sport star coming out of high school as a five-star football recruit who signed with the Rams who was also drafted by the Minnesota Twins. His father is now a prominent athletic trainer in Arizona. His mother, Mary Beth Robinson, was a swimmer at Florida.

Duce Robinson has wide receiver athleticism and movement skills in a tight end's body. His play style and physical traits remind us of Jimmy Graham. Both were also stars in other sports, with Graham going to play college basketball at Miami, while Robinson is a MLB Draft prospect. Robinson is a top football recruit, while Graham switched to the sport full-time in college.
