Andrew Robinson Looking Forward to Syracuse

Baltimore quarterback Andrew Robinson gave his verbal commitment to Syracuse back in early July, but he just recently took his official visit. While on the visit Robinson got the chance to meet the coaches and mingle with some of the Orange's most prominent committed and uncommitted prospects.

Andrew Robinson a 6-foot-3, 215 pound quarterback from Baltimore, Md., had a solid senior season.

"We finished five and five. We lost some close games, but it was the best record we have had since I have been here, so that shows the improvement that we have made over the last three years," Robinson said. "I threw for around 2,500 yards, with 12 touchdowns, and three interceptions. I also rushed for about 600 yards and five or six touchdowns," Robinson reported.

The Scout.com three-star prospect knew that Syracuse was his school back in early July, but his recent official visit was even better than he could have imagined.

"I had a blast," he exclaimed! "My parents got along really well with the coaches, and I had the chance to hang out with some of the other prospects. I talked to Dan Sheeran, Matt Reid, Jason Kates, and Delone Carter. Delone was a great guy. I guess the only uncommitted prospects that I talked to was Kates and Dan Sheeran -- Dan seemed very positive about Syracuse though. He said he was gonna take a couple of visits and then weigh his options."

"Jake Flaherty was my host. He talked to me a lot about the attitude of the program from this year to last year. It seems all the guys are really up beat about the direction of the program. The coaching staff is even really positive despite having a rough year."

Robinson also recently had some of the coaches come down for an in home visit.

"Major Applewhite and Chris White came down about a week before my official visit. They had dinner at my house and we talked. Coach Robinson is going to be coming down sometime in January to meet with me and my parents."

Robinson also has exactly the kind of attitude you hope to see in a top-notch competitor, and after talking to the staff, he knows what it will take to see some early game action.

"They told me just to keep working as hard as I have been, and if I am the best worker and the best player then I will see the field. Whether it is the first game, the third game or the seventh game, if I am a starter or a backup, I will see the field if I put myself in a good position."

Robinson did what he could do while on his visit to talk with and get to know the players that he will be playing with in the future. He appears to be a solid leader on the field, but he also wants to help lead the Orange to a top recruiting class.

"For all the prospects that are uncommitted, just come up and see what we have to offer, meet the coaching staff, and give us a chance. You will definitely like what you see in the university and the football program," Robinson explained.
