Pitt FB Recruiting
Pitt Football Makes Top 10 For 2024 4-Star WR Jason Robinson, Jr.
Pitt has made the initial recruiting cut for an elite junior wide receiver.
2024 four-star wideout Jason Robinson Jr. from Long Beach Poly in Long Beach, California narrowed down his long list of offers to 10 schools and that group of schools includes Pitt.
Robinson’s Top 10 includes Pitt, Notre Dame, Colorado, Florida State, Utah, California, Penn State, Washington, USC and Syracuse.
Pitt’s recruitment of Robinson is interesting.
Back in his freshman season, Pitt was the first school to extend him a D-1 offer, with that coming from then-wide receiver coach Brennan Marion.
The communication between the two sides got quiet until recently when Tiquan Underwood ‘re-offered’ him and with the two hitting it off almost instantly, it’s completely changed the dynamic.
A month ago, Robinson had this to say to PSN about his initial conversation with Underwood.
“Me and him are real alike guys,” Robinson told PSN. “We were just talking about meeting each other and getting to know each other. I do feel a little bit more of a connection with him, I’m not gonna lie. Sometimes I get on the phone with a coach, and it be a little rah-rah, you offer and then you go off the phone, but when I got on the phone with him, it was like a real talk. And the last thing he even mentioned was the offer.”
This one special I’am blessed to be able to say that the 1st school that ever offered me, after talking to @TiUnderwood “University of PITT”has Re Offered!! @CoachDuzzPittFB @CoachKlineAlex @Pitt_FB #H2P 🔵🟡 @EdOBrienCFB pic.twitter.com/3DqcfxIHsV

In just eight games as a junior at Long Beach Poly, Robinson was the Jackrabbits’ leading receiver. He hauled in 46 receptions for 671 yards (14.6 yards per reception) and five touchdowns — showcasing crisp route running and the ability to leave opposing defensive backs in the dust.
247Sports rates him as the 349th-ranked recruit in the class (48th-ranked wide receiver and the 30th-ranked recruit from California) while On3 rates him as the 432nd-ranked recruit in the class (74th-ranked wide receiver and the 33rd-ranked recruit from California).
Rivals is even higher on Robinson, rating him as the 41st-ranked wide receiver and the 23rd-ranked recruit from California — holding a 5.8 Rivals Rating.
Pitt, with Underwood leading the recruiting charge, has definitely worked itself into his equation now, too.
“They for sure at the top, just being able to talk to coach like I did,” Robinson said. “That just clicked it because they weren’t even on the map at first, I ain’t even gonna a lie, but now I’m really interested in going and seeing what they have to talk about.”
Feel free to call it a conspiracy but…
One has to wonder if Penn State has an informant spy on the Pitt staff since they seem to be offering every decently high rated player that Pitt is offering a scholarship too. Now even in Long Beach, CA. Hmmm…
