Corey Robinson, a 2013 wide receiver prospect out of San Antonio Christian High School and son of NBA Hall of Famer David Robinson, has finally gotten his first verbal offer.
Notre Dame offered the 6-foot-4, 195 pound Corey Robinson a scholarship on Tuesday. Although the junior was in school at the time Irish assistant coach Kerry Cooks, (co-defensive coordinator) left him a voicemail, which his parents had the chance to listen to before Robinson heard the good news.
When Robinson went to listen to the message for the first time, his parents captured his whole reaction on film.
"I was shocked, pleased and amazed," Robinson said. "I called Coach Kerry to tell him thanks and how excited I was. I can't wait to talk to the whole staff and learn more about the program. I really liked Notre Dame's atmosphere. I went to a Navy-Notre Dame game earlier in the year. I loved the campus, the weather was beautiful and they have amazing academics. Notre Dame is one of my top schools right now along with Stanford."
Robinson's football coach Brandon Parrott was just as enthusiastic about the news. Parrott said he talked to David Robinson on Monday, who expressed how humbled and excited he and his wife were about the Notre Dame offer.
Corey Robinson, who has been working hard to tone his football skills since beginning the sport in the ninth grade, participated in the U.S. Army All-American Combine in January. Amidst the college recruiting chaos, Robinson has been getting advice from his well-experienced father, who told him to look for a school that offers growth academically as well as athletically.
