Nakia Robinson Jr. has lots of offers but only one is from an ACC school. NC State holds the distinction of being the only major conference school that has offered Robinson (5-11, 175). The Wolfpack do not seem to believe they are out on a limb in making that offer.
NC State's coaches had a chance to watch Robinson at the satellite camp they helped put on at Florida Atlantic. At least some of their coaches did. Before that camp the coaching staff had been talking to Robinson for several weeks dating back to the springtime.
"I talked to Coach McDonald yesterday. He hits me up every morning," said Robinson. "Coach McDonald and all the coaches are funny. They're likable to talk to and be around. I think I've talked to the whole staff. I went to that camp at FAU. Coach Kitchings had introduced me to all the coaches and I had a chat with the new offensive coordinator.
Robinson has been talking to McDonald for a long time and often. He has worked out in a setting where the coaches were able to watch him go to work. The one thing Robinson has not been able to do is visit Raleigh to see everything in person.
That is something McDonald is hoping Robinson will have a chance to do. When the two talk one of their topics of conversation is a visit and trying to make that happen. Robinson says he is not just putting that off.
"He's trying to get me up. I just need a way. I know I'll be taking an official for sure. But I don't know when it will be."
If Robinson takes that official visit and if the coaching staff still has a spot for him when that time comes around then it might be a safe bet to assume Robinson will want to join the Pack. He said the only other official visit he's thinking about taking right now is to Appalachian State.
Robinson is being recruited to play running back at NC State.
"They run a zone offense and I think it would be a good fit. I've seen videos of the school and I like what I've seen so far. They like my speed and my vision and they're just a good fit."
