Penn State All 105: Mason Robinson Part of McDonough Pipeline

Penn State is loaded at defensive end, and Mason Robinson is one of the up-and-comers in that room.

Robinson is the subject in the latest edition of All 105, a Nittany Sports Now series profiling each Penn State player.

Before Penn State: Penn State received its second Class of 2023 commitment in as many days late Tuesday morning, Dec. 13, when Mason Robinson committed a day after decommitting from Northwestern. Robinson (6-foot-4, 235 pounds) committed to Northwestern in late May 2022 but de-committed following his official visit to Penn State in December.

Robinson joined quite a pipeline of standouts from his high school, the McDonogh School in Owings Mills, Maryland. Also from the McDonogh School are current Penn State defenders Dani Dennis-Sutton, Curtis Jacobs, Dvon Ellies and PJ Mustipher. Robinson has a relationship with all four of those players. Although Mustipher and Jacobs are done with his college career, Dennis-Sutton and Ellies are still at Penn State.

A quote by Mason Robinson: Before making his commitment official, Robinson spoke with 247Sports about Penn State and coordinator Manny Diaz’s defense.

“They let the d-line play really vertical and let them attack,” Robinson said. That is the one thing that I loved. Now you allow the linebackers to do their job, play hard, play fast, and you play the run on the way to the quarterback. That was one of the cool things that they have going on with their defense.”

A quote about Robinson: ”That was big for us because I felt like we needed to sign some high school defensive ends in this class. That was big for us.” — coach James Franklin on Robinson at his post-signing day presser.
