01/02/14 - Allen Robinson to Enter 2014 NFL Draft...Robinson is Penn State's 98th first-team All-America selection all-time. He is the 84th Penn State football student-athlete to earn first team All-America recognition, dating to W.T. (Mother) Dunn's selection to the Walter Camp All-America squad in 1906. Additionally, Robinson is the Nittany Lions' 24th first team All-American since starting Big Ten Conference competition in 1993 (28 total selections).

01/02/14 - Allen Robinson to Enter 2014 NFL Draft...Penn State first-team All-America wide receiver Allen Robinson (Southfield, Mich.) has decided to forgo his final year of college eligibility and will enter the 2014 National Football League Draft. The 2012 and 2013 Big Ten Richter-Howard Receiver of the Year, Robinson earned seven All-America honors after a stellar 2013 season. The standout junior was selected a first-team All-American by CBSSports.com, Sporting News and Phil Steele's College Football, a second-team honoree by the FWAA, SI.com and Athlon Sports and a third-team honoree by the Associated Press.
"It was a great honor to play at Penn State," stated Robinson. "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." "We are very excited for Allen," said interim head coach Larry Johnson. "Allen has meant a great deal to our program at Penn State and we wish him all the best and continued success at the next level." - Penn State football
12/26/13 - CBSSPORTS.COM ALL-AMERICANS: FIRST-TEAM OFFENSE AS NFL DRAFT PROSPECTS: WR - Allen Robinson, Jr., Penn State: With the Nittany Lions breaking in a freshman quarterback this season, no way Robinson would be able to match his 2012 production, right? Not so fast. The junior receiver surpassed last season's totals and finished with 97 catches for 1,432 receiving yards and was the main playmaker for the Penn State offense. He isn't the biggest (6-2, 210) or fastest (estimated 4.55 speed), but he's able to be effective because he pays attention to detail and is extremely aggressive when the ball is thrown in his area. Robinson projects as a top-40 prospect if he makes the jump to the NFL. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
12/05/13 - Top Prospect of Week 14: Penn State WR Allen Robinson...With the Nittany Lions trailing 14-7 in the closing minutes of the first half, Robinson ran an 18-yard square-in and leapt into the air to haul down a high pass from Hackenberg to give Penn State first and goal from the two-yard line. The pass was thrown where only Robinson could catch it but robbed him of the opportunity to do anything after making the grab.
Robinson was featured on the Nittany Lions' first drive following the half, diving back towards his quarterback and getting his hands underneath the football to save one low pass for a first down and showing off his strength to push aside Shelton and linebacker Derek Landisch after catching a quick out for another one. The variety of routes run, receiver positions played and the ability to gain separation against both press-man and off coverage is an indication of Robinson's polish. His consistent production this season is another.
Saturday was the eighth time this season the First Team All-Big Ten wideout eclipsed the 100-yard mark. Despite catching just three passes for 29 yards as a true freshman two years ago, Robinson's 175 career receptions rank second in school history to Deon Butler's 177. With the Nittany Lions ineligible for a bowl this season due to NCAA sanctions, it remains to be seen if the next pass Robinson catches comes with Penn State or in the NFL. The junior has said that he'll discuss his options with his family and make a decision over Penn State's holiday break. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
