Career at Pinnacle

Robinson was a five-star tight end. He ranked as the state’s No. 1 overall prospect from the class of 2025 and the No. 19 prospect in the entire country.

The receiver showed nothing short of dominance in his time with the Pioneers. During his senior season, Robinson hauled in 84 receptions for 1614 yards and 14 touchdowns.

He was offered by dozens of Division 1 programs but ultimately made his mind up

The USC Trojans were fortunate enough to land him following this ridiculous season. Not only is Robinson a five-star football player but he is also a potential MLB Draft prospect as well.


Multi-Sport Impact

As a true freshman and just 18 years old, Robinson caught passes from expected No. 1 overall NFL pick Caleb Williams this past season. His ability to get on the field immediately goes to show how special of a prospect Robinson is.

With limited playing time, he caught 16 passes for 351 yards and two touchdowns for the Trojans.

This production will only increase over the next few seasons.

The baseball season is now underway and Robinson’s focus will shift there. He is capable of playing at the next level in both football and baseball. It is safe to say that USC made the right decision in their recruiting.
