Allen Robinson Declares for 2014 NFL Draft

23 - Michigan - The Catch, Allen Robinson

Allen Robinson is ready to get paid.

According to the Penn State athletic department and his Twitter account, Robinson has decided to enter the 2014 NFL Draft, forgoing his final year of of eligibility with the Nittany Lions.

Robinson set multiple single-season program records in 2013, including most receptions (97) and most receiving yards (1,432), and was named to a bevy of All-American teams. He will end his career second in school history in career receptions (177) and third in career receiving yards (2,474). Not bad for a three-star high schooler who received one scholarship offer from a BCS school.

“It was a great honor to play at Penn State,” Robinson said in a statement. “I am blessed to have played with, and for, the people in the Penn State football program. This is a decision that I believe is best for my family and I, and I wish all the best to the University and all my teammates.”

His announcement comes two days after Bill O’Brien agreed to leave Penn State to coach the Houston Texans. It is unclear if O’Brien’s departure played into his decision to leave Penn State.

Robinson was responsible for some of Penn State’s best plays in recent memory, and will certainly go down as one of, if not the best, wide receivers in school history. Onward State wishes him the best of luck in his future endeavors.
