Kwakou Robinson Update

Kwakou Robinson is a big DT prospect from NY that has offers from dozens of schools. He has been to Penn State twice unofficially.

Name: Kwakou Robinson
Position: DT / OT
Height: 6'3 1/2"
Weight: 310 pounds
40-yard dash: 5.0
School: Poly Prep, Brooklyn, NY

Kwakou has been a huge part of Poly's success this year.

"We have one more game on Saturday," Kwakou (pronounced KWAY koo) said.  "We're 7-0."

His stellar play has earned him offers from dozens of schools, but Kwakou has begun to narrow the list of prospective schools down.  He offered his top 5 list.

"Probably Ohio State, Virginia, Miami, Notre Dame, Michigan State, that's probably it.  Those are not in order."

He said that he does not really have a favorite among those teams.

Previously, Kwakou had Penn State higher on his list of favorite teams, and expected to take an official visit to Penn State.

"Yeah, I did [have them higher], but it just didn't click the way I want it to.  I've been there twice, for a Junior Day in August and the Miami game.  They're up there.  They would probably be number 6.  Penn State is my number 6 school."

Penn State has maintained regular contact with Kwakou.

"Yes, I talk to Coach Norwood often.  I get along well with him and Coach Johnson."

Kwakou took his first official visit on October 14, to Ohio State.

"I could see myself there for 4 or 5 years.  My host was Will Smith, the DE.  The coaching staff there is great, the city itself is nice, the campus is beautiful, and the crowd is loud.  I mean, 102,000, what is there to say about it?  They played Wisconsin, Wisconsin won.

"I got to meet all the coaches.  I had already met them before, over the summer, because I went to a camp there.

"I click there, I just felt it."

Kwakou has started scheduling other official visits.

"I have a visit scheduled for Virginia on November 17, and no others yet."

He will most likely use his remaining 3 official visits to visit his other favorites, namely, Miami, Notre Dame and Michigan State.

"Probably, but you never know.  I could easily be visiting Penn State after the Virginia visit.  I think everybody's list changes from time to time.  When you don't commit, it's harder.  The list could change and Penn State could be my number 3 school."

Right now, it looks as though Ohio State is the team to beat, and Penn State is on the outside looking in.
