Michigan State had quite a few visitors this weekend including Somerville, N.J. athlete Mason Robinson. The 5-foot-9, 180-pounder had a great visit to East Lansing even though the Spartans couldn't hang on to win over Notre Dame.
"It was a really fun visit and I liked all the people and coaches," he said. "I got there on Friday afternoon and hung out with some of the guys including my former teammate Jesse Miller and Colin Neely. I really liked hanging out with them because everybody on the team treated me like I was one of their own, I felt at home."
Robinson was able to spend some time with the coaches too.

"I talked to coach Sirmans, Stoutland and John L. Smith," he stated. "All the coaches were cool and I really liked that they focused on academics instead of just football all the time. They also talked about the bond the players have together and that was nice to see."
The three-star prospect enjoyed the game despite the Spartans close loss.
"It was cool, there were a lot of fans there and they were really behind their team even though it was down pouring," he said. "I also paid close attention to the running backs and kick return game since that's what the coaches want me to play. From what I saw, it looks like the running backs and return men can break it open almost anytime. It was also cool to see the running backs not competing with each other, but instead hanging out and joking around."
Overall, Robinson gave his visit to Michigan State a perfect 10.
"The visit was a blast and I wish I could have stayed a couple more days," he said. "Everybody was cool including the players, atmosphere, campus and students."
At this time, Robinson is considering setting up other visits possibly to Boston College, Iowa and Rutgers.
