Story by Andrew Feather, Campus Correspondent for Bishop McNamara High School
WASHINGTON (WUSA) — For the second time in two weeks, a Bishop McNamara High School defensive lineman has committed to Georgia Tech University for the 2013 season.
After watching teammate Darius Commissiong commit to the Yellow Jackets in late May, Kevin Robbins (2013) made the decision himself.
“It feels great to know that I have picked a college,” said Robbins. “Georgia Tech is the one that I am most comfortable with and that I feel like I can have the most success at.”
Robbins, who plans on majoring in business management, also brought up the importance of academics in his decision saying, “They are a very good academic school and a degree from Georgia Tech means a lot.”
To get Robbins to verbalize his commitment, Tech had to beat out several schools including Michigan State and North Carolina — the alma maters of his father Kevin and uncle Austin respectively, both of whom played in the NFL.
The one lasting technique that really stood out to Robbins in the recruiting process was the personal approach taken by Yellow Jackets’ Defensive Coordinator Al Groh.
“He really laid out a vision for me and where he sees me playing. He wants me to play outside linebacker in GT’s 3-4 scheme. He made me feel like I can have a lot of success there,” said Robbins, with excitement in his tone.
As for goals for the upcoming season, Robbins said he only has one.
“Win a WCAC championship. With the team we have this year I feel like we can really have success. I really just want to do everything I can to help my team be successful.”
Currently, his only plans are to take an official visit down to Georgia Tech and made it clear that he does not see himself visiting any other schools.
