Super DL Says UM Leads Big

This defensive tackle prospect has over 60 scholarship offers and is widely considered the nation's top prospect at his position. Read on to find out why he strongly favors the Hurricanes, when he'll visit, and which other schools might still have a chance.

At 6-foot-5 and 300 pounds, Irvington, N.J. standout defensive tackle Nate Robinson has watched his team struggle to an 0-2 start this season. However, the talented defender said things are about to change.

"We lost a couple close games because our offense has had trouble getting things going," he said. "We've been making some stupid mistakes and beating ourselves offensively. We're going to eliminate those and start playing up to our level this week though."

In those two games, Robinson has been involved in 30 tackles and has registered five sacks and one caused fumble.

A full academic qualifier, Robinson said recruiting continues to keep him busy but he's starting to narrow his list down some.

"Coaches are calling and coming by the school all the time," he said. "I have set up my five official visits though. I'm going to Miami, Michigan State, Georgia, North Carolina, and Virginia."

The talented defensive lineman talked about the Hurricanes.

"I'm going down to Miami on December 20," he said. "I'm still favoring them. That's where I'm trying to be. They're the best team, they produce the best defensive linemen, and I think it's a perfect fit for me. I just need to visit to make sure."

Robinson will see UM coach Vernon Hargreaves at school on Monday.

"He called me from the plane tonight," he said. "He said he'll be coming by the school tomorrow to meet with my coach and everything."
