Demarcus Robinson won't announce at the 2013 U.S. Army All American Bowl on Saturday. Is that bad news for Florida?

Talented Georgia wide receiver Demarcus Robinson may yet take the cake for the craziest recruitment of the class of 2013, but he won't be finishing it on Saturday with an announcement at the 2013 U.S. Army All American Bowl. Robinson had been planning to do that this week, and deciding between Florida and Clemson, but told Gator Country's Andrew Spivey Friday afternoon that he's not announcing, and that "I will enroll on Monday at my college I decide."

Robinson, an early enrollee, has completed his high school education and will be enrolling at either UF or Clemson. Spring semester classes begin at Florida on Monday, and registration is open until January 11. Clemson's spring classes begin on Wednesday, with an orientation on Monday. Whether that favors Florida or Clemson is largely a judgment call, but Spivey agreed with a Twitter follower who said he thought it favored Florida.

Whichever school gets Robinson — and both Florida and Clemson had Robinson committed in December — will be getting an elite wide receiver who has been among the best players on the field in San Antonio this week.

And, hopefully, whatever school Robinson chooses will be his best choice, one that makes him happy and gives him a chance for success.
