“I say Pitt because they’ve had a long run of receivers get drafted and developed by a coach I’m very familiar with,” Robinson told Rivals’ Matt Moreno. “He (Tiquan Underwood) can coach up mostly anything that you need. They’ll throw that ball, and they’re always going to have a quarterback to throw the ball to receivers. And that’s why they made my list also.”
Pitt has made the latest cut for a highly sought-after four-star receiver from the West Coast.
Jadyn Robinson — a 5-foot-9, 155-pound wideout from San Juan Hills in San Juan Capistrano, Cal. — narrowed down his list of offers Friday to just eight schools. Colorado, Washington State, Pitt, Arizona, Texas, Cal, Utah and Arizona all made the cut.

Pitt jumped into the fray for Robinson in April, with Tiquan Underwood extending the offer as he was recruiting Robinson’s brother Jason — listed as one of Jason’s finalists before he committed to Washington.
Robinson has not made it out to Pittsburgh for an unofficial visit, posting trips to Texas, Arizona and Washington since the summer, but his relationship with Underwood has clearly stood out.
Robinson isn’t the biggest recruit, listed at 5-foot-9 and just over 150 pounds, but he’s a smooth, shifty athlete with excellent route running abilities. And he’s shined with the ball in — and out — of his hands.
Robinson only played in five games as a junior at San Juan Hills, but he made an impact on the ground and in the air. He hauled in 15 receptions for 206 yards (13.7 yards per reception) and two touchdowns — adding 15 carries for 130 yards (8.7 yards per carry) and two more touchdowns.
247Sports rates Robinson as the 571st-ranked recruit in the class (81st-ranked wide receiver and 57th-ranked recruit from California) while On3 rates him as the 597th-ranked recruit in the class (96th-ranked wide receiver and 55th-ranked recruit from California).
Rivals is even higher on Robinson, rating him as the 54th-ranked wide receiver and 27th-ranked recruit from California — holding a 5.8 Rivals Rating.
Pitt does not currently have a commit in the class of 2025, but that will likely change as the calendar flips to January and the focus shifts to 2025, but Robinson isn’t the only recruit to list Pitt as a finalist in recent weeks.
