Penn State Star Makes Trip to Maryland

It’s unclear if Penn State will have one of its best players for tomorrow’s game at Maryland.

But Chop Robinson has made the trip.

Robinson, who got hurt in the second quarter at Ohio State two weeks ago, was carted off the field and missed the rest of that game and the next week’s game against Indiana, was seen arriving with his team at the hotel, as captured by Mark Brennan of Lions247.

Robinson wasn’t seen by reporters at the team’s weekly Wednesday practice viewing window. When asked about Robinson’s status days after the injury, coach James Franklin was predictably vague, but said he didn’t see it as a season-ender.

Robinson being out for Saturday would be disappointing for a number of reasons.

Week in and week out, he’s one of Penn State’s most important players. But this week would be Robinson’s only chance to play at his former school for the opposing team. The Gaithersburg, Maryland, native who starred at Quince Orchard High School committed to Maryland’s 2021 Class and played there for that season. Afterward, he entered the transfer portal and picked Penn State, who pursued him heavily as a high-end four-star recruit. In more than a year and a half in Happy Valley, Robinson has blossomed into a player many project will be a first-round draft pick in 2024.

With or without Robinson, Penn State needs to beat Maryland Saturday to have any realistic chance of winning the Big Ten and making the College Football Playoff, the latter of which hasn’t been done in program history. The game is scheduled to kickoff at 3:30 on Fox.
