Havelock is home to one of North Carolina's top junior offensive linemen in tackle Corey Robinson, a massive 6-7, 290-pound prospect with a lot of upside. He was at NC State's Junior Day and had plenty to say in an interview with Pack Pride after returning home.
Robinson has the kind of wingspan that coaches love in a tackle prospect. He's continuing to work on his strength and agility but certainly has the attention of college coaches.
"It was good," Robinson said of his trip to Raleigh. "I liked it a lot. The weight room was great. It was real big.
"We went around the Murphy Center and that was nice. The we went and ate. After that we went on a bus route to see all the places around the school. It was good to see the surrounding areas.
"After that we came back and went back into the weight room to split up into groups. We looked at film of their plays so we could get an idea what the schemes are like. Just little stuff like that. That was about it."
Robinson said it was the first such trip to any school. He has enjoyed the contact he has had with the NC State coaches thus far.
"I got to talk to the line coach and most of the coaches," he said. "I talked to the head coach ... actually, I think I talked to all of them. There were a lot of people around so they really didn't say that much.
"This was the second or third time I talked to them, I think. The first time I saw them was when one of their recruiters came down to see me while I was in the weight room doing some training."
Robinson said the two other schools he has heard from are Duke and East Carolina. What does he think about each of those programs?
"I like both of them. I like East Carolina because they have a great defense and it's just a great place. As far as Duke, I haven't seen much of them. I'll probably look at them more this year."
While plenty of factors will weigh on Robinson's mind when the time comes for him to make a decision one in particular will be important.
"Basically the team and if they're going to want to win," he said. "If they want to work hard to get a championship."
