VIDEO: Cam Robinson Says He Would Never Consider Sitting Out a Bowl Game
This bowl season has been rather unique in that some of the country's top players have opted to sit out their team's postseason game to avoid injury as they prepare to move on to the NFL.
First it was LSU running back Leonard Fournette that decided to rest his ankle in the upcoming Citrus Bowl. A few days later, Stanford running back Christian McCaffrey announced he would skip the Sun Bowl game to begin his NFL Drat prep. A day after that, Baylor running back Shock Linwood followed suit.
Alabama offensive lineman Cam Robinson, who is a projected top-10 pick in next year's draft, was asked about this new trend and if he'd ever consider doing the same thing.
"No, never. That's not even an option," Robinson said.
"I've spent, you know, three years with -- these guys are my brothers. There's nobody on Earth I'd rather play football with. The love, you know the bonding I have, these guys and my coaches. So if it was my last collegiate football game, I couldn't see myself sitting out."
Robinson said he hasn't discussed his future and the NFL yet, but that will certainly be happening soon.
