After visiting Notre Dame this weekend, Corey Robinson decided that was exactly where he wanted to spend his college career.

The 3-star wide receiver and San Antonio Christian standout had offers from Iowa, Navy, Wake Forest, North Carolina and Kansas, but in the end felt that Notre Dame was home.

“It feels great,” Corey said. “I’m very comforted and know I can be apart of the Fighting Irish in a year and a half. It feels really good. I loved the atmosphere and coaches, it just felt right. We were praying about it and we felt the Lord really led us to the commitment. We had a peace about it. They believed in me before anyone else. They were my first offer. They had this confidence in me. I enjoyed hanging out with them. A lot of times we weren’t even talking about football. I respect hem as men.”

Corey’s father, NBA Hall of Famer David Robinson, was just as enthusiastic about his son’s commitment.

“It is always the subtle things that make you feel at home at some places rather than others,” David said. “I’m absolutely thrilled for him. I’m just proud of him. He’s worked so hard and stayed focused. Obviously with a school like Notre Dame they don’t just take athletes because of their father’s name. It’s a real tribute to his energy and effort that he’s put into his game. How can you not be proud when such a storied program wants your son.”

Corey and David both got back from an unofficial visit to Wake Forest the same day Corey committed to Notre Dame.

“Being at Wake Forest today, we saw that they are a phenomenal group of coaches,” David said. “They are great people working hard for their program. Both programs (Wake Forest and Notre Dame) have good guys and both are great. But when you see you have a connection with something, you can’t explain it.”

Corey went to Notre Dame for the team’s Junior Day and he met with academic counselors from the school. The talented prospect has emphasized the importance of education in his decision and was immediately impressed by what he saw from the Fighting Irish.

“Academics had a huge impact on my decision,” Corey said. “That’s why both Wake Forest and Notre Dame were my top schools. Academics was the forefront of my decision and played a huge role. The players at Notre Dame were amazing. They were just like me. They wanted the education. They were very talented, but they were very dedicated. I saw that in their class work and in their football. I saw their level of passion. I feel like I would mesh with them. I just felt a connection.”
