 Robinson, Young both frustrated
posted 8 years ago

PISCATAWAY —Kordell Young and Mason Robinson are still as fast, still as shifty and still as talented as they were in high school. They just haven't shown it yet. When Young came to Rutgers two years ago he essentially sat and watched Ray Rice run. Last year he tore his ACL in the third game and then watched the rest of his sophomore year run out. As a freshman last year Robinson also watched Ray run. Right into the NFL. This was to be their year. This was to be the year Rutgers fans would get to see the break-ankle moves, the 100-meter speed, the long touchdown runs. So far there have been none. And no one is more frustrated than these two. After rushing for a team-high 94 yards in this year's opening game, Young hurt his surgically repaired left knee. He hasn't played since. He may play at Cincinnati on Saturday. Maybe. Robinson has had 70 carries in 19 career games. His longest run has been 25 yards. He has dropped a couple of punt returns this season, and against Navy three weeks ago he never even got in the game. Not exactly the stuff from which legends are made. Not exactly what Robinson did in the Skyland Conference along the Route 22 corridor. Not exactly what Young did in the Colonial Conference down in Gloucester County. "I'm not breaking a couple of runs like I did maybe in high school, like the flash and dash the people want to see," Robinson said. "But in time you know they will come. In high school a lot of times a guy would come through a block so you try and make him miss, and now up here it's much faster. The holes close faster. The game has slowed down, but, I don't know, everybody out there is a D-1 athlete so everything is faster. I just keep grinding every day and try and get better."
