One of the top defensive line prospects in the country will be making his way to Virginia next week. Nathaniel Robinson , the talented defensive tackle from Irvington High School in Irvington, NJ, hopes to visit Charlottesville on the weekend of December 13.

“I’m trying to reschedule Virginia for next week,” said Robinson. “Coach Golden was here earlier today, and we were trying to set up the visit. It was on the January 17th.”

The change in visit dates was possible after Robinson eliminated Georgia early this week. The switch will also help Robinson decision-wise, as he wants to be able to choose his school sometime in mid-January.

“I want to get all of this over with by early January, so I can go ahead and make my decision,” said Robinson. “I will definitely take all of my visits before deciding.”

Currently, the Miami Hurricanes are the team leading for his services. The other contenders are Maryland (January 10 visit), Virginia (12/13), North Carolina (1/17), and Rutgers. Robinson will visit the Scarlet Knights this weekend.

“I’m going to Rutgers on Friday to see what they have to offer,” said Robinson. “Miami is my leader, followed by Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina and Rutgers, in that order.”

Robinson likes the Hurricanes because of their coaches, players, and history of putting great defensive tackles in the NFL. While the Cavaliers are currently third for his services, Virginia’s up-and-coming program is appealing.

“Virginia is a program on the rise,” said Robinson. “I could be one of the players to help build that program.”

Several other factors will play an important role in his decision.

“I don’t just want to be another number wherever I go,” said Robinson. “I want to make an impact. I want to know what my position is on the team. I also want a strong academic support team. That’s very important.”

Robinson is currently rehabbing from an early season knee injury, a rehabilitation that he feels is “coming along great. The doctors say that once everything is healed, I will be ready to go.” He looks to easily be 100% by the time he reaches the campus of his school of
