Today, we take a look at one of SU's many incoming freshman, Nick Robinson from Baldwinsville. Here we go.
Player: Nick Robinson
Position: Offensive Line
Hometown: Baldwinsville, NY
High School: C.W. Baker
2010 Stats: He might have done some high school things, but obviously he didn't suit up for SU last year.
2011 Projections: Very few offensive linemen play their first year, and Nick's a bit of a local project player, so don't expect much from him in the immediate future.
How'd He Get Here?: Nick's always been a Syracuse fan, so when Marrone swooped in with a late offer, he jumped all over it. Nick was all set to go to Tulane before the SU offer.
What Did Scout/Rivals Say?: Both have Nick listed as a 2-star prospect.
Money Quote: When asked about the team running out onto the field to start the game, with the sultry sounds of Carrier Dome 80's hair metal blaring:
"It always gives me the chills...I want to do that."
Links of Wonder: Nolan's PS story on Nick's commitment to SU.
What Does Marrone Think?: Not all that much. Someone should ask him.
Interesting Nugget O'Interest: Nick got a lot of cool awards in High School. The Post-Standard made him the first ever lineman to win All-Central New York Player of the Year. He was first team All-State in class AA. Nick helped lead B'Ville to two straight Section 3 and Class AA football titles. A winning pedigree is always a plus.

High School Highlights:
#34 on the first play has had better days, I'm sure.
