The Robinson twins, who have been committed to the Oregon Ducks since September, have ruled out a switch to Lane Kiffin’s Trojans, per ESPN recruiting analyst Blair Angulo.

With the news of three de-commitments on the eve of National Signing Day(Jalen Ramsey, Jason Hatcher and Torrodney Prevot), Kiffin needed to up the ante on several fronts in hopes of closing strong and picking up the pieces from a once invincible recruiting class.
Kiffin offered a scholarship to Jermaine Kelly this afternoon and was hot on the trail of Priest Willis, which coincided the news that he would not sign a letter of intent on Signing Day.
That put the Robinson twins higher on the want list for Kiffin than before. The twins visited USC during the group visit on January 18th, and although that signaled mutual interest, they were always a longshot to sign with the Trojans.
Tyree Robinson is a two-way athlete, while Tyrell is being recruited as a linebacker. Both play basketball and will have the opportunity to do so with Dana Altman’s Fighting Ducks, who are 18-4 and ranked No. 19 in the country.
