Sporting News Names Allen Robinson a First Team All-American

Allen Robinson’s record breaking season isn’t going completely unnoticed, as Sporting News named Penn State’s star wide receiver a first team All-American.

Robinson was a monster for the Nittany Lions this season, catching 97 balls for 1,432 yards, which are both single-season school records. The Michigan native hauled in six touchdowns, and chipped in six rushes for 36 yards. On top of that, Robinson had tons of memorable moments this year, like his catch against Michigan that was instrumental in Penn State’s victory over the Wolverines, or his insane 65 yard catch-and-run against Ohio State.

According to Sporting News, Robinson is “A fabulous, under-the-radar season for a player many scouts believe will be the best pro from a deep group of wideouts in the 2014 NFL draft. He carried the Penn State offense and put up big numbers (97 catches, 1,432 yards, 6 TDs) for a unit that wasn’t geared toward the pass (501 rushes, 409 passes).”

While Robinson’s future at Penn State is still up in the air for a few more weeks — he said that he’s going to decide on declaring for the NFL Draft over winter break — we can’t help but think that he’ll end up on a few more All-American lists next season if he stays in Happy Valley.
