At 6-foot-4 and 315 pounds, Irvington, N.J. standout defensive tackle Nate Robinson is getting very excited about the start of his senior season.
"You have no idea how hungry I am," Robinson told me. "We've had three scrimmages and now I'm ready to get things going. I've gone both ways and I feel great."
Robinson, whose team starts the season on Sept 14, has been very busy talking to college coaches the past few days.
"I've had a bunch of coaches calling," he said. "Basically all of my favorites have called. Miami's still my big leader but things have changed a little bit after that."
The standout defensive tackle talked about his new list of favorites.
"After Miami, Virginia has stepped in there," he said. "Then it's Rutgers, Michigan State, Maryland, Syracuse, Pittsburgh, Virginia Tech, and a couple others."
Robinson said he was at the Rutgers game when they lost to Villanova.
"It was unbelievable," he said. "I was there and it was crazy. Rutgers has a real young defense and they have a ways to go but they're still on my list."
Robinson talked about his current favorite.
"I talked to Miami on Sunday and they basically said I'm the defensive lineman they want the most," he said. "I scheduled a visit to Miami for December 20. I'm also set for Michigan State on December 6. That's it for now. Miami's still my big leader. They have everything I want and I'm really looking forward to my visit. I'll probably make my decision right after that because they're going to be tough to beat."
Robinson was recently named a preseason first team All-American by TheInsiders.com.
