Robinson Addresses Rumors

There have been rumors floating around in recent weeks regarding the commitment status of Irvington, N.J. standout defensive tackle Nate Robinson. Big Nate addressed those rumors tonight.

"I'm committed to Miami," Robinson said. "No more visits, no more commitments, nothing. It's Miami."

The standout defensive lineman said he still gets calls on a regular basis from several schools, including Virginia, North Carolina, Syracuse, and Rutgers.

"I just listen to what they have to say," he said. "They've been recruiting me all year. I guess they don't care that I'm committed to Miami."

Robinson said he was hanging out with some friends near the Rutgers campus last weekend when he ran into a fellow UM recruit.

"I saw Bryan Pata, a cat from Miami that's going there," he said. "We just talked about Miami and stuff like that. He's a character, but so am I."

Robinson, who said he's weighing 305 pounds these days, said he works out every day in preparation for a college career at Miami.

"I'm watching Warren Sapp in the Super Bowl right now," he said. "I know what he did at Miami and look what he's doing now. I want that to be me someday and Miami's the best place that gives me a chance to do that. I've been working out like four times a day, lifting a lot. People are going to know who I am when I get there, remember I said it."
