Nebraska Recruiting: Big Day in Arizona for Defensive Prospects

November 29, 2018

Recruiting never stops and it's easy to miss the top stories day-to-day. Recruiting analyst Greg Smith recaps all things Nebraska recruiting news, analysis and more so you never miss a thing.

Yesterday, we talked about Wandale Robinson and the impact his in-home visit that Ryan Held conducted would have. Today, we’ll talk about a different Robinson on the other side of the ball. 

Ty Robinson‍, a 4-star defensive end from Higley High School in Gilbert, Arizona, is scheduled to have an in-home visit tonight from both defensive coordinator Erik Chinander and defensive line coach Mike Dawson. Last night, Robinson hosted USC’s head coach and defensive coordinator just hours after the Trojans let go of their defensive line coach (who Robinson told Hail Varsity he had built a close relationship with). 

Nebraska did well with Robinson on his official visit for the Michigan State game. When Hail Varsity asked him about the memorable parts of the visit, Robinson really got into the full package that being a student-athlete in Lincoln gives you. 

“Getting to talk Keith Zimmerman, their life coach that helps with community service and helps them become better people, him talking to us was pretty awesome showing how much Nebraska does for the community, the team, the school,” Robinson said. “That really left a great impression on me. Getting to meet with the strength and conditioning coach and the dietician was truly amazing. I got to figure out that if I wanted to, my body could hold 320 pounds easily. That just shocked me. Just the program they put their players through to develop them to become the best.”

It’s a busy time for Robinson as he is fresh off an official visit to Alabama. It’s significant that USC let go of his lead recruiter. Chinander and Dawson have a great opportunity to solidify Nebraska’s position with Robinson during the in-home Wednesday night. That’s before the eventual in-home from Scott Frost that Nebraska still has in its back pocket. 

It’s also worth noting that 4-star safety Noa Pola-Gates‍ is expected to get a visit Wednesday from both Erik Chinander and Travis Fisher. It’s a big day for defensive recruiting in Arizona for Nebraska.
