Syracuse impressed one of the top defensive tackles in the country this past weekend. Nate Robinson of Irvington, N.J. had such a great time that the Orangemen are very high on his list. But are they ahead of the others now?
"I had such a great time on my visit. My host was defensive lineman Louis Gachelin and I really hit it off with him, he really showed me a great time."
Nate had been scheduled to visit University of Virginia this past weekend, but those plans where canceled when UVA told Nate that they had already signed a few defensive lineman.
"UVA told me that they signed a few defensive tackles, plus they run a 3-4 defense and I'm not sure how good that is for me. It all worked out for the best, I really wasn't too sure if I was even gonna make the trip anyway."
Nate will visit Miami on Dec. 20, Maryland (Jan. 10) and North Carolina (Jan. 17).
"Syracuse really is a college town. Everything is so close together and there is a lot to do. The dome was very nice and I enjoyed the coaches and players."
Will Nate commit early?
"No, I'm gonna wait this out. I loved my Rutgers visit and now I feel great about the Syracuse visit. I really need to see all the schools before I do anything."
What about a leader?
"Miami still leads, but the others are very close. I won't commit anywhere until after my visits."
