After going nearly four months stuck on four verbal commitments, Penn State is beginning to gather some steam in its recruiting.
Two weeks after New Jersey offensive lineman Anthony Alosi announced he would sign with the Nittany Lions and two days after Virginia wide receiver Matt Zanellato did the same, Michigan wide receiver Allen Robinson accepted a Penn State scholarship offer on Monday night.
Robinson is a 6-foot-3, 195-pound flanker from Orchard Lake St. Mary High School, the same program that produced Nittany Lion freshman quarterback Rob Bolden.
"It played a little bit into my decision, but, when I went to camp up there in the summer, I really loved the campus,'' Robinson said. "Rob being there was just a little bit extra.''
Robinson had approximately 50 catches for 800 yards and 17 touchdowns as a senior for the Eaglets, who lost in the state championship game. He also had scholarship offers from Minnesota, Toledo and Buffalo and was hearing from Wisconsin, Michigan State, Illinois and Purdue.
