NC backer adds offers, claims top three

Laurinburg (N.C.) Scotland County linebacker Artemis Robinson is up to four scholarships. The 6-foot-1, 205-pounder has taken one unofficial visit to one of many other schools moving in on the Carolina prospect.
"I'm getting a lot more interest. I'm up to four offers with Appalachian State the other day and Elon," he said. "Minnesota visited last week and I've been to NC State about three weeks ago."
Robinson discussed the trip to Raleigh.

"It was a great game," he said. "They had a couple players on defense and had a good game. They are very interested in me. They know my brother played for NC State years back and are very interested. They keep visiting and coming to my games. I met the coach and he loves me, we're real close and I've got a great relationship there."
Meanwhile, Robinson plans to take more trips.
"I plan to visit Appalachian State on October 20th and then coming up I'm going to one of Duke's games. Around January I think I may visit Miami. They have been talking to me a lot too, just about every week."
So, who stands out for Robinson?
"I'd say my top three are NC State, Miami and Duke, I'm kind of leaning towards Miami a bit more. I'm highly interested in them."
Robinson discussed why he likes those three schools.
"It's the program at Miami," he said. "They have a lot of alumni and players come back to help the team. They have good coaches and I've talked to Coach Barrow. We talk a lot and he's a Christian guy. We connected from the first time we spoke.
"I'd say my ties to NC State are important, but it's also the fan base and the coaches. With Duke, it's not that far from home and a degree from Duke is major. You're guaranteed top dollar, the education is a big factor. They are building a program too."
Robinson has helped his team to a 5-1 record this season.
"The season is going great," he said. "I have 78 tackles and two sacks.
"I see a big difference in my play this year. I feel like I'm athletic and I can be a leader of the defense. They started me outside, but moved me inside since I have the speed to move sideline to sideline."
