Fairfax (VA) Paul VI 2013 standout Stanford Robinson picked up an offer from NC State this week, and the four-star prospect was excited to receive the news.

"I actually talked with the head coach from NC State and they offered me a scholarship," said Robinson. "It means a lot because NC State is a good school in the ACC. They came to a lot of my games this summer and said they like how I play. They also offered my teammate, Josh Hart. They said they like the way we play together.

Robinson, who plays for Team Takeover on the AAU circuit, is currently rated the No. 11 shooting guard in the country by Scout.com. He really helped his reputation over the summer with several big performances.

"My best event was probably the Nationals," he said. "I played real well and helped lead my team to the title game.

"I feel like I'm at my best on the fastbreak because I can control the floor and get into the lane. I probably need to work the most on my shot selection at times."

NC State wasn't Robinson's first offer, as Miami, VCU, Drexel, USF, Rutgers, Pittsburgh, and UMASS have already extended scholarship offers. He just took unofficial visits to two of those programs.

"Before I got the NC State offer I was on a visit to Rutgers and Villanova," he said. "Those two trips went well. I don't know what I'm looking for just yet, but it was nice to go up there and see the campus and meet the players."

Robinson admits that he is still learning about all of the programs under consideration, including NC State.

"As of right now it's still early but I want to get down and visit NC State hopefully in September or October," he said. "I don't know too much about them right now. I know Ryan Harrow was there, and C.J. Leslie is there now.

"I know they are recruiting guys like Rodney Purvis... that's about all I know about them so far. They have a new coaching staff too and so I'm going to try and get to know them even better and find out more about the school."

It is still early in the process for Robinson, who doesn't have a list or leader at this point. He did point out that there is a chance he plays on the next level with two of his AAU teammates, Josh Hartand Beejay Anya. Both Hart and Anya also hold offers from the Wolfpack.

"We've talked about possibly playing together," he said. "There has been some talk about that, but we haven't decided yet.

"I think we all play real well together. That would be great, going to college with Josh and Beejay."
