Andre Robinson, one of the top junior running backs in the Mid-Atlantic, already has seven offers but right now the Harrisburg (Pa.) Bishop McDevitt star is focused on the season opening game.
"Everything is good," said the 5-foot-10, 190-pound Robinson. "Camp went well and we looked good in our scrimmages. Practice has gone well this week and we're getting ready for the biggest game of the regular season against Harrisburg. There were almost 15,000 people there last year. We have a new school building and new field that we'll be playing on for the first time."
Robinson hold offers from Boston College, Maryland, Penn State, Pittsburgh, Rutgers, Syracuse and Virginia Tech and everything seems to be progressing well with each school.
"I talked to Coach Robinson from Pittsburgh the other day," said Robinson. "He said he would try to get out to my school some time soon. I'm planning on going to the Penn State versus Michigan game, the Notre Dame versus USC game and a Virginia Tech game early in the season with Andrew Ford. It would be pretty cool to be down there with him so they have a little bit of a leg up right now."
Those are hardly the only schools Robinson has been in touch with.
"I've been in contact with Michigan, Ohio State, Notre Dame, Iowa, Wisconsin and Nebraska but haven't gotten an offer from them yet," he said. "I think those Big Ten teams could be the next schools to offer. I was actually just talking with my coach about getting out to Ohio State to see (former teammate) Noah Spence and maybe stopping up at Michigan on the same trip.
"Last visit was to Notre Dame and it was awesome," Robinson said. "I watched my film with Coach Alford and he said he really liked me a lot. They said they aren't really rushing to offer a lot of guys in the 2015 class. They want to get me to visit as much as possible to get to know me. I assume I'll get one this year judging by the way they talk."
Bishop McDevitt opens their season at home against Harrisburg (Pa.) on Saturday August 31.
