Late Monday evening, while the rest of the nation was watching the NBA Awards, Big 3 basketball, and The Bachelorette, Jojo Robinson made a decision that would effect his future.
Robinson, a wide receiver from Miami, FL, announced his commitment to Texas Tech via Twitter.
The 6’1” wide out was originally part of the 2014 high school class but has had an extensive history. In high school, Robinson was a 4 star recruit and ranked in the top 150. After originally committing to Florida State, he eventually enrolled at Arkansas as a prized recruit.
Right before enrolling, Robinson found himself in legal trouble as he was arrested for armed robbery. The charges were eventually dropped however he was still given a one game suspension. During the 2015 season, Robinson wore out his welcome and was dismissed from the program for class absences. After these setbacks, Robinson picked himself up and competed for Independence Community College in Kansas in 2016.
Texas Tech finally extended an offer to the 21-year-old and will be on campus this fall as a junior with two years of eligibility remaining. This comes after three Tech receivers left the program in the offseason. With these departures, Robinson will have the chance to prove his ability from the outset and Red Raider fans can hope to watch him make plays on Saturdays.
