That’s the case with Nate Robinson of Irvington, N.J.
Robinson had come into this week with visits set to Miami, Virginia, Maryland, Georgia and Michigan State. That’s all jumbled up now and some new teams have crept into the mix.
“I think I’ve met with about 100 coaches here in the past few days,” Robinson, who is 6-foot-4 and 319 pounds, said. “Let see, Syracuse, Rutgers, Nebraska, Maryland and North Carolina have all been by so far. We put a little plate of sandwhiches out for them every time. I think I’ve gained about 10 more pounds.”
No pain, no gain.
Robinson said that the coaches he and his family meet with all try to get him to change up his visit schedule, but the nation’s No. 22 player has done that all on his own.
“I was going to Michigan State this weekend,” he said. “But now I’m going to Rutgers. I want to go up there and see what they’re about and see if the coaches can turn that program around. I want to see that in person.”
After that, Robinson was originally set for Georgia on December 13, but he’s now going to visit UVA instead. The Miami trip has been scheduled for December 20 and is still set in stone for that date. After that he’ll visit Maryland on January 10 and North Carolina now on January 17.
He said he’s not visiting Georgia mostly because it’s too far away from home and in the SEC his family might not be able to see him play as often.
“Miami is still definitely the team to beat,” Robinson said. “They’re still up there above the other guys. I’m not going to just go ahead and commit. I want to see what the schools look like and then make my decision.”
