Trevor Robinson (6-foot-5 , 300 pounds) doesn't need much of an introduction when he arrives on the Notre Dame campus. Robinson made his fifth visit to Notre Dame in order to get a better feel for the campus.
"It went really well," Robinson responded when asked about his visit. "I had been to Notre Dame a number of times, but I never really saw anything outside of the football part of it. I got to see things that I hadn't in the past. We got to see where [the students] ate, watched the practice, which was obviously one of the main things. Overall I think it went really well."
"We got to see how the coaches worked with the players. Dave Peloquin one of the recruiting guys helped us out a lot and one of the offensive linemen, Tom Bemenderfer was with us as well. I wish we could have seen a practice where they were in full pads, because they were just in helmets. It was up-tempo. They went harder for a shorter period of time. I like that. I think it's better to go harder for a shorter period than.
"After practice was over I got to talk to some of the guys. I felt comfortable talking to them because they reminded me a lot of myself, just from their personalities. I could definitely see myself being around those types of guys.
"I got a chance to talk to Sam Young for five or ten minutes," Robinson explained. "He came over when we were eating and it was kind of interesting seeing the relationship that he had with coach Latina. It just seemed like more than a coach-player relationship. It seemed like they were friends off the field as well. We really didn't talk a whole lot about the football part of it, we just kind of messed around a little bit. I talked to Bartley Webb a little bit and John Sullivan came over and introduced himself."
"Sam was kind of in a unique situation because he played a lot right away. I got a lot better idea of what I would go through if I went to Notre Dame, especially from Sam Young."Before leaving campus Robinson met with several of the Notre Dame coaches.
"I met with coach Latina, coach Ianello and coach Weis for about an hour," Robinson said. "We mostly talked about academics, what they had to offer, what majors where offered and what other players majored in.
