Meet Nickell Robey

| 1 Comment

Name: Nickell Robey

Position: Cornerback

Class: Freshman

Age: 18

High School: Frostproof (Frostproof, FL)

Comparison: Athletic, diminutive (5'8") corner like Darrell Rideaux, emulates Florida CB Janoris Jenkins

Prep Career: He was named Super Prep All-Dixie as a defensive back/running back at Frostproof.  He had 764 yards on 88 carries (8.9 avg.) with 9 TDs and caught 17 passes for 232 yards (13.7 avg.) with 6 TDs on offense, had 73 tackles, 2 interceptions and 2 forced fumbles on defense and averaged 17.1 yards on 8 punt returns and 34.7 yards on 7 kickoff returns in 2009.

Fall Camp: Robey's been the freshman star through two weeks.  He has won the nickel job and could be the second starting corner opposite Shareece Wright come Hawaii.  Plus, he's a special teams demon returning, blocking and covering kicks.

In his own words: "It's beautiful to play football!" said Robey, who is thrilled to be back on the field after losing his mother to a massive heart attack in February.

Here's Robey's introduction to the media after practice today on Howard Jones Field:
