Four-star tight end Rob Gronkowski took his first official visit of the season this past weekend back to his home state of New York. The Pittsburgh (Pa.) Woodland Hills prospect made a visit to Syracuse.
"The trip went really good," he said. "I got there on Saturday morning. On the visit, I met with all the coaches, ate dinner and breakfast with them and went to the game. The coaches basically went over their plays. I also was able to hang out with a few of the players on the team including my host Andrew Robinson. He was good to be around and basically said how great of a place Syracuse is."
The 6-foot-6, 232-pounder was able to talk to quite a few of the coaches.
"I talked to every single coach on the team, but mostly I spent my time with Brian White," he stated. "He talked to me about the same old stuff as always, keeping up with how I'm doing and what he likes about me.
"I was able to talk to Greg Robinson too. He's a really good guy to talk to. Mostly he just talked about how I'm doing and everything. He also did say I'll fit in great there and thinks I'll play right away. I like that a lot because they use their tight ends all the time."
As for the game, the Rivals250 prospect was impressed by the Orangemen's overtime victory over Wyoming.
"That was a great game," he said. "The atmosphere was crazy and really wild. They won the game in double overtime. It was great to see them win and be around all the players afterwards."
Gronkowski was very impressed with his trip.
"I'm not sure what I'd rate it because it's the first one," he said. "I would probably give it a 9.5. It was a real good time and everything went well."
At this time, Gronkowski has not scheduled any other official visits. He is continuing to look at Arizona, Clemson, Maryland, North Carolina, Ohio State and Syracuse.
