Texas Longhorns head coach Steve Sarkisian has a lot of good things to say about sophomore Bijan Robinson, one of the country’s rising stars.
In a way, it’s like Harry is reunited with Sally.
“I think what makes Bijan special is who he is as a person,” Sarkisian said after the fight over the weekend, for 247Sports. “He is just a very good human being. I think he cares, is thoughtful, has a great work ethic, is determined, is motivated and humble. And I think in the end that makes him a good person and that also makes him a good player. He gets to work, has drive, humility, is a good teammate. So in the end, frankly, Bijan is unique to me. He is a very special young man. “
Special, in fact. Hopefully a brilliant compliment translates into 30 that entails a game.
