Another Top Ranked Defensive Back Names Penn State as a Top Contender

Penn State has already picked up four recruits in its top-ranked 2023 recruiting class, and another may be on the way soon. Four-star cornerback Antonio Robinson from Florida Christian High School in Miami, Florida may be the next great Nittany Lions cornerback.

Robinson (5-foot-10, 170 pounds) narrowed down over 20 offers into his Top 12 of Michigan, Ole Miss, Virginia Tech, Texas, Mississippi State, Kentucky, Arkansas, Miami, South Carolina, Florida, WVU and Penn State.

Robinson has been a leading figure in Florida Christian’s 10-0 start to the season. He’s rushed for 332 yards and eight touchdowns on 31 carries, caught 15 passes for 246 yards and three touchdowns on offense, and he’s racked up 48 tackles (17 solo), nine tackles for loss, two interceptions and defended eight passes.

So… there hasn’t been an area where he hasn’t contributed because he’s also recorded 320 return yards this season.

According to 247Sports, Robinson is the 176th-ranked recruit in the cycle, checking in as the 24th-ranked cornerback and the 39th-ranked recruit from Florida. Rivals rates him as the 34th-ranked cornerback in the cycle.

Neither 247Sports nor Rivals has projected a landing spot for Robinson yet, but he’d be the second highest-ranked recruit in Lions’ head coach James Franklin’s 2023 class.
