Westinghouse ATH Kyshawn Robinson Rates Penn State Visit 10/10



Westinghouse DB Kyshawn Robinson.

Even as a freshman on high school football’s biggest stage, Westinghouse Bulldogs’ athlete Kyshawn Robinson showed that there was no moment too bright for him. Playing in the state championship game last season, lined up at cornerback on his own goal line ahead of a pivotal third down, Robinson announced his presence with a thunderous hit. 

Robinson broke free of the receiver blocking him, accelerating forward to stand up the ball carrier at the goal line

“I knew a run was coming, but as a corner I’m secondary to the run and [play] outside contain. I got rid of the wide receiver and [saw] the running back break a tackle,” Robinson said. “The only thing that went through my mind was ‘run through his face,’ and that’s exactly what I did.”

Robinson said his performance in the state championship game and 7-on-7 tournaments after the season ended helped solidify his position as a prospect to watch. As of July, he has ten FBS offers

He visited Penn State for their game against the West Virginia Mountaineers, rating the experience a 10 out of 10.

“It was a great atmosphere, the crowd was packed and lots of energy,” Robinson said. “I recommend [it] for all recruits.”

Staying Hungry

Robinson said he’s also visited Texas A&M, Oklahoma, Maryland, Howard and Akron. As the Power Five offers continue to pile up, Robinson said he won’t let himself settle in.

“Staying hungry and refusing to lose is what got me here,” Robinson said. “Staying hungry helps with not getting comfortable, because once you get comfortable anything is bound to happen.”

Kyshawn Robinson said the coaches he’s talked with focused on his defense, and described how he wants to improve this year.

“I’ve been told to focus on defense mainly but to keep playing offense to show versatility,” Robinson said. “I would like to work on my field awareness and also my communication. I would also like to work on my hip flexibility and getting in and out of my breaks faster.”
