Today, we take a look at one of SU's many incoming freshman, Nick Robinson from Baldwinsville.  Here we go.

Player: Nick Robinson

Number: #68

Position: Offensive Line

Year: Freshman

Height: 6'6"

Weight: 265

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.

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