Alabama is aware of his exploits, and that the Wolverines' offense will flow through him when the teams tangle Sept. 1 in Arlington, Texas.
"He opens up things because he's very, very fast," Alabama defensive end Damion Square told reporters Wednesday, according to al.com. "As a defense, we've got to first and foremost come in the game and stop what they want to do first.
"They want to give him the ball first, and that's what we're coming to stop."
It appears the nation's reigning No. 1 defense -- overall, scoring, rushing and passing -- will be targeting Robinson, who either passed or ran on 56.8 percent of Michigan's plays last year, and 58.1 percent in 2010.
He led the Big Ten last year in overall offense at 257.6 yards per game.
"He has the ball in his hands every play and he's a real dynamic guy, so it is very dangerous," Square said. "You have to come and be prepared to stop him first and foremost."
