Peach State Receiver High On Irish

A visit to Notre Dame in the spring left a lasting impression on Georgia wide receiver Demarcus Robinson. Will it be enough to get him back on campus for another look? has the latest.

Pulling Fort Valley (GA) Peach County four-star wide receiver Demarcus Robinson out of SEC country will be a tall task.

But warm welcome received by the 6-foot-2, 200-pound receiver when he visited South Bend in the spring was nice start.

"Notre Dame seems like a great school," said Robinson. "I went up there for a visit and they showed me all around the place and it was nice. It's a place I could see myself at.

"I've been around the whole campus and it's such a nice place. I went up for a spring practice and when I was walking around people were saying my name and asking if I was Demarcus. I didn't even know them and it made me excited."

Because of his campus experience the Irish look to be in the running for another visit in the near future.

"Right now Notre Dame is equal with everybody else," said Robinson. "I'm going to see Clemson, Auburn, Florida and go back up to Notre Dame in the summer. I'm supposed to go back up there when quarterback commit Malik Zaire goes back up there. I don't know yet when that will be, but I'll probably already be up there anyways as I'm going to visit my uncle in Chicago as he trains me."

Robinson knows of two programs he plans to schedule for official visits. He also has a timeline to meet as he looks to start his college career a little early.

"For my officials I'm looking to visit Oregon and Oklahoma right now," said Robinson. "I'm not sure about any others but Notre Dame is right up there.

"I don't really know when I'll be making my decision, but it's going to be before January because I'm trying to graduate early."

While getting a warm feeling during his campus visit was important, Robinson has another reason to have the Irish high on his list.

"When I was up there they told me how all the black males who play sports graduate from there," said Robinson. "That is really impressive and knowing that like 97 or 98 percent of all athletes graduate is also impressive." will be checking back with Robinson as we get closer to him possibly visiting the Irish in the next month or two.
