Robinson Enjoys Pitt Visit

Harrisburg, Pa., native Adrian Robinson took an official visit to Pittsburgh this weekend trying to earn another scholarship offer to add to his resume and get a feel for what the Panthers had to offer him as a student-athlete. Robinson may not have come away with a written offer, but he did come away impressed with what Pitt put on the table for him in other ways.

Adrian Robinson is ranked a three-star strong side linebacker by Scout.com, however he could end up adding weight to his 6-foot-2.5, 225-pound frame and playing with his hand on the ground at defensive end at the collegiate level as well. The player that will remind Panther fans a bit of Joe Clermond with his high motor and burst off the line of scrimmage visited the school this weekend and came away very impressed by the official.

"My host on the visit was Aaron Berry who I went to high school with as a freshman, so we were already real familiar with each other," Robinson stated. "I really liked all of the players and coaches I met and was impressed with Head Coach Dave Wannstedt. He used to coach for the Cowboys and I'm a Cowboys fan myself, so I thought that was pretty cool."

"One thing that stuck out to me about the visit was the quality of education Pittsburgh provides and how much academic support there is there," Robinson explained. "They keep on top of their players and help them out a lot in the classroom which I think would be very good for me. The facilities were also top of the line and I really like the tradition and history of the football program. I know if I went there and worked hard I'd have a good chance of going to the NFL eventually."

Robinson would have more offers if not for his academic situation, but could add a Pitt offer to his Connecticut offer if his SAT results are good.

"They told me that they would offer me if I got a 930 on the SAT, so I'm just going to keep taking it until I get there."

Robinson will also be taking an official visit to Temple soon and could be going to Michigan for one as well in the near future.
