Get To Know Your Orange Man - #68, OG Nick Robinson

We're counting down from 99 (Ryan Sloan) to 1 (Ashton Broyld and Julian Whigham). Here's a look at Baldwinsville native and starting right guard, Nick Robinson.

Rich Barnes-USA TODAY Sports

Name: Nick Robinson

Position: Offensive Guard

Year: Senior

Height: 6'5"

Weight: 281

Hometown: Baldwinsville, N.Y.

High School: C.W. Baker

2013 Stats: Robinson started all 13 games last season.

2014 Projections: Although he missed spring with a lower-body injury, he is projected to be the starting right guard. Assuming Ivan Foy returns to right tackle from his academic suspension, SU will have four returning starters: Sean Hickey (left tackle), Rob Trudo (left guard), Robinson and Foy.

How'd He Get Here: Well, he's only from Baldwinsville so I would assume by car. (I'll be here all week.) Syracuse beat out Buffalo, Tulane and  Western Michigan for the local lineman.

What'd Recruiting Sites Say: Two stars from Rivals and Scout.

Money Quote: "It's where my heart is." -Robinson, on staying close to home.

Links of Wonder: The Post-Standard's Nolan Weidner wrote about Robinson's career at Baldwinsville and his commitment to Syracuse.

Twitterfeed: Nick can be found at @nrobinson7868.

Tweets of Wonder:

What Does Shafer Think of Him: Nothing. Well, I'm sure HCSS has some opinion of him, but nothing that I could find.

Interesting Nugget O'Interest: Chris Carlson wrote about the O-Line's combination of "fury and furry".  Robinson tells a story about trying to shave in the shower when he was in sixth grade.

"It was the first time I ever shaved and I've never shaved again," Robinson said. "It was the worst experience of my life. ... I was like, 'Oh that hurts.' Then the water got on it and, oh God, I just started screaming for my mom."
