Despite the shortcomings of Arizona State's football season in 2011, no one can argue that the Sun Devils didn't have a few players with big-time skills who produced. One was wide receiver Gerell Robinson, and on Thursday the school announced that Robinson has accepted an invitation to play in the East-West Shrine Game.â†µ
Robinson shined for the Devils in 2011 with 77 catches for 1,397 yards, seven touchdowns and a crazy per-game yardage average of 107.5. The 6-foot-4, 222-pound senior from Chandler seems prototypical for the NFL, and capped off his final collegiate season with 241 receiving yards in the Las Vegas Bowl.
Known as "G-Rob" among his teammates, Robinson emerged as one of the more colorful personalities on the Sun Devils' roster in 2011. You can see him on Jan. 21 on the NFL Network, which will televise the East-West Shrine Game at 2 p.m. live from Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Fla.â†µ
Fifty-two players currently active in the NFL have played in the game, as well as 62 NFL Hall of Famers.â†µ
