Oregon is in the news with the announcement of Head Coach Chip Kelly leaving the Ducks to take the Eagles job in the NFL. Coincidentally, I was working on highlights of one of the most dynamic players in the country who happens to be committed to Oregon.

Tyrell Robinson (6'3/210) plays outside linebacker and receiver for Lincoln High School in San Diego, Calif. He also happens to be a terrific basketball player. His athleticism is on display every time he steps on the field.

Projected as the No. 5 outside linebacker in the country by FOX Sports Next, that may actually be a conservative ranking if Robinson focuses on football full time. Robinson is explosive off the edge, but he's more than just a straight line edge rusher.

Robinson has an excellent change of direction and tackles well in space. He is instinctive in his reads and seals the edge well on read option plays. Because of his ability as a receiver, Robinson is comfortable dropping into the slot and covering a receiver depending on the scheme. 

Robinson and his twin brother Tyree Robinson (Video Link), committed to the Ducks in September and had enjoyed a relatively quiet run up to Signing Day. They can expect a little more action the next two weeks as coaches all over the country will gauge their interest in picking a new school.

It doesn't take long to see why the interest will be coming from coast to coast, just check out Robinson in action from his senior year.
