North Carolina State bolstered its class of 2018 when it added 3-star, 5.7 ATH Daevon Robinson. The 6-foot-4, 205-pound athlete out of Shawnee High School is ranked the 34th ATH in the entire country and the 17th overall prospect in the state of New Jersey. He announced his decision to commit to NC State via Twitter earlier today.
Robinson becomes the second commitment for the Wolf Pack as he joins fellow South Jersey recruit & 4-star QB Devin Leary. Robinson took some time out of his busy day to talk with us here at NJVarsity.com about his decision.
"I’ll be committing to NC State,” Robinson told NJVarsity. "I love the school and the coaches feel like family. I know people that are there now and some guys who are going there too. Also, the coaches are great they have a great team and i feel I fit perfectly in the offense."
Robinson goes on to mention that another reason he committed is because of the love he felt from coaches McDonald and Faulk.
"I talk to coach Faulk and coach McDonald the most down at NC State. They talk about how they want me at NC State. Also they say that they want me to have a impact early and they are excited to have me apart of the wolf pack," said Robinson.
Currently NC State also has another South Jersey guy committed in QB Devin Leary. Robinson went on to talk about the relationship those two and what Leary has been telling him about the school.
"Leary's been on me, telling me that I have to go to NC State with him. As well as former Jersey guy Kelvin Harmon. Mostly Leary just says like it's the best move and great chance to play. He's gonna be there obviously and I want to play with a guy like that, he really changes the game by himself. As for Harmon he's been saying that Jaylen Samuels is leaving and that it’s going to be the perfect opportunity for me. Also that it's a great school and I would have a lot of fun there," Robinson said.
As of now Robinson is planning on heading down to North Carolina State on Saturday to check out the school a little bit more and hangout with some of the coaching staff. In the meantime stay tuned for more on Robinson and other 2018 Jersey recruits right here on NJVarsity.com!
