TUCSON, Ariz — Salpointe running back Bijan Robinson will play college football at The University of Texas, becoming the first Tucsonan to play for the Longhorns.

Robinson is a five-star recruit and considered to be the third best running back in the nation, according to recruiting website 247sports.com. He rushed for a Salpointe school record 35 touchdowns last year, and he has 72 career touchdowns.

Robinson reportedly chose the Longhorns over USC, Alabama, and Ohio State.

Studies show children who grow up with books in the home enjoy a substantial advantage over children who do not.
