There was a buzz on Notre Dame, Michigan, and Nebraska websites Tuesday when the news broke that Trevor Robinson, one of the elite offensive linemen in the country, planned to visit Michigan and Notre Dame this weekend. From the Lincoln Journal Star:
“We are going for a drive, and that’s all it is right now,” said Wade Robinson, father of touted Nebraska football recruit Trevor Robinson.
The Robinsons’ plans for a long drive later this week created a stir Tuesday among Husker fans, at least those on Internet message boards and blogs. Unease and even consternation occurred because Trevor Robinson, a 6-foot-6, 305-pound offensive lineman, revealed that he will again visit the campuses of Notre Dame and Michigan.
A senior-to-be at Elkhorn High School, Robinson verbally committed to Nebraska on April 7 after making previous visits to Ann Arbor, Mich., and South Bend, Ind. Robinson remains verbally committed to Nebraska, his father said.
Robinson was one of Notre Dame’s early targets and one of the highest offensive linemen on their board before making his commitment to Nebraska. Robinson visited Notre Dame at least three times according to the article (although it was a few more than that) and many felt the Irish were going to be the team to beat at one point. Robinson went with the hometown Huskers back in April though.
It’s probably a bit too early to get overly excited, but this would be a huge pickup for the Irish if anything were to come of it. Notre Dame already has commitments from two interior linemen – Braxston Cave and Miike Golic Jr, but adding a third in the form of Robinson is certainly something that the Irish would be willing to accomodate.
