Quarterback Patton Robinette committed to North Carolina on Wednesday, according to Jamie Newberg of ESPN Recruiting.

Robinette chose UNC over Northwestern, Vanderbilt, Purdue and others. He threw for more than 1,800 yards, 21 touchdowns and ran for 11 more.
"I just had a really strong feeling about North Carolina," said Robinette. "Their academics and tradition are incredible and I love the community. Coach [Butch] Davis, coach [John] Shoop and the other coaches there are all outstanding coaches and guys. Really, it's the best fit for me.

"I visited a bunch of schools like FSU, Clemson, Georgia, Wake Forest, Northwestern and Vandy," Robinette said. "And it was just a great experience for me. I had an opportunity to visit some of the greatest schools in the country. Along the way I met with some super people and coaches. My family kept me grounded and this was my decision."

Clemson added three-star kicker Bradley Pinion to its class of 2012. As a junior, Pinion averaged 68 yards per kickoff, averaged 38 yards punting and made 7-of-12 field goals with a long of 42 yards. He also made 25-of-26 extra points.

Overall, Miami has the most recruits of any ACC school in its current class with 15. Virginia Tech has 12 and Florida State has 10. FSU has the most quality, though, as seven of those recruits are ESPNU 150 players. Miami has five ESPNU 150 recruits, and Clemson has four.
