2010 WR loves BC
With just eight commitments in the Class of 2009, Boston College has plenty of work to do between now and Signing Day. That said, the coaches have also been busy getting a jump on prospects in the junior class. One such prospect is Columbia (Md.) Atholton wide receiver Matt Robinson, who took in a game at BC earlier in the year.
Robinson, a 6-foot-3, 195-pound prospect from Maryland, has attracted interest from programs like Boston College, Maryland and FCS schools. He had a nice junior year in spite of his team's struggles on offense.
"We had a pretty rough season but I did alright. We started out in the spread and that didn't work out too well because we didn't have a great quarterback situation. We lost our 2,000 yard rusher from the previous year. So we went to the Power I and ran the ball more.
"I think I really progressed as a blocker over the season. When I got the ball I made the most of it."
Robinson had 15 receptions for 205 yards and four touchdowns on the season.
It has now been a good while since he attended a game at BC. How was the experience in hindsight?
"I was at the Clemson game and it was pretty good," he said. "I really like it up there. I went to camp there in June and it was good to get back. I just got a feel for the campus and what it's like when all the kids are in school."
Boston College wasn't the first school Robinson visited. Prior to that BC-Clemson game, Robinson visited UConn and came away impressed with what the Huskies have to offer.
"Right now I'm focused on school and getting ready for basketball," he said. "I've made a decision not to pursue that for college. I'm enjoying it now and it's my first love, but I think my future is in football."
Though basketball will occupy much of Robinson's attention in the coming months he would like to take a trip south before too long.
"We were trying to go down to North Carolina but we don't know when we'll be able to. I've been hearing from UNC and NC State, and I just want to find out a little bit more about them. They sent me a lot of letters throughout the year. I had been to North Carolina when I was younger and I'd like to go again. I just feel like I should go back."
As for favorites?
"I'm keeping that pretty open but I do love Boston College."
