A Tennessee offensive line target has trimmed his list to five and said he’s ready to commit soon. James Robinson, a three-star offensive guard out of Montgomery, Alabama, has included Tennessee in that final five, along with Auburn, Mississippi State, Texas A&M and Ole Miss.
Robinson made the announcement on Twitter on Sunday.

Robinson, part of the class of 2020, first visited Tennessee in March, which is where he picked up his offer from the Vols. He returned to camp with Tennessee in early June before taking his official visit to Knoxville on June 14th.
Robinson is 6-4, 327 pounds and checks in as the 743rd overall player in the class. Despite that ranking, Robinson has earned offers from several SEC schools, along with Georgia Tech, Virginia Tech and Nebraska. Texas A&M could be the wildcard to watch here, offering Robinson earlier this month. The Aggies didn’t appear in his top eight back in June, but have now jumped into his top five.
Tennessee currently has two offensive line commitments — four-star center Cooper Mays and three-star guard Javontez Spraggins. They inked five in the class of 2019, although three-star guard Melvin McBride was forced to retire due to medical concerns.
Tennessee currently holds four crystal ball projections for Robinson, per 247 Sports.
On the field, Robinson is a mauler with a strong upper body. He plays right tackle in high school, but is a bit heavy-footed, which is why he projects as a guard.
