Northview Chief’s Neiko Robinson Commits To Penn State Nittany Lions
June 4, 2012
Robinson, a 5-11, 170-pound safety, made the unexpected verbal commitment on the phone late Sunday night with Penn State coach Bill O’Brien after receiving the offer on Friday.
The rising senior is listed as the 18th best safety in Florida, according to Rivals.com.
Northview Coach Ty Wise says Penn State, Alabama, Florida State, the University of South Alabama, North Texas and Louisiana Tech were among the schools that visited Robinson or watched him practice at Northview. The first offer Robinson received was from Penn State.
Robinson is a transfer from nearby Flomaton High School, where he help lead the Hurricanes to an 11-2 season last year.
