Crusader earns first offer was able to confirm Monday night that Na'alii Robins, a 6-foot-2.5, 242-pound defensive end from the St. Louis School in Honolulu, Hawai'i, will be officially visiting Oregon State this coming weekend after having been offered a scholarship by the Beavers. This news was initially reported by Doris Sullivan of the PIAA.

"I was happy," Robins said when he heard the news. "I was shocked. They were one of the schools I want to go to. The coaches there, they are like family."

The 6-foot-3, 240-pound defensive lineman is one of the big reasons the Crusaders are off to a 4-0 start in ILH play so far in 2010. Clearly the Beavers have been paying attention, and they are bringing Robins and his father up on an official visit this weekend to see OSU host Arizona State.

There is a chance Robins might put a quick end to a recruiting process that just started to take off for him. "IIt could be a good possibility that I commit early," he said. "But I would have to talk it over with my family."

At this time Weber State appears to be the only other school that is talking about an official visit, but interest is definitely growing. Arizona just spoke to Robins recently, and according to his family Wyoming, Hawaii, Utah State and Washington State are also curious. will have more on Robins' recruitment when he gets back from his official visit to OSU this weekend.
