Davondre Robinson hasn't visited NC State recently, but he's a player that the Wolfpack staff seems to be excited about anyways.
That much seems to be a given. Not even debatable. Des Kitchings used one of his valuable Friday nights as a recruiter and talent scout to travel to Lake Marion High School in Holly Hill, South Carolina. That's where Robinson (5-11, 190) resides and goes to school.
It may be a little ambitious for Kitchings and the rest of Dave Doeren's crew to make a go at Robinson. He is ranked the second best player in South Carolina and usually players with that ranking in that state are tough to win over. Clemson has impressed him.
"I went to Clemson-Notre Dame and it was good up there. The atmosphere was nice. I didn't even know it was gonna be packed even in the rain like that but the stands were packed."
Robinson is willing to travel and he is not just thinking about Clemson and South Carolina though. He was in Tennessee when they played Oklahoma. Those are the only two games he has been to so far this year but Robinson is keeping an open mind and also leaving open the possibility of more last second travel plans that might materialize.
NC State is a school that he might try to visit later this year. He does not seem to be against a trip to NC State even though he has been to the school once before.
"Coach Kitchings came to our game when we played Oak Cliff. He hasn't told me what he thought yet, but they've been talking to me a lot. They like that I'm a physical DB and things like that. I can play corner and safety so they really like that. Coach Kitchings is a really cool dude. I've been there one time for a camp but that was last summer. Like a year ago. I just saw the football things there. I haven't really toured the school but I might try to go back sometime."
Robinson said he has fond memories of that one trip to NC State and he also likes the fact that Kitchings would make time to come visit his school and watch one of his games. Lots of other coaches have done that too and Robinson will have a lot of game invitations to sort and sift through if he decides to visit more schools this fall.
Robinson's trip to Tennessee for their game against Oklahoma was not his first time in Knoxville. He camped at Tennessee in the summer. He also camped at Clemson and Georgia.
