The Huskies have made official the commitment from Long Beach Poly (Calif.) Wide Receiver Jason Robinson.
At 5’10.5” and 160 pounds, Robinson shows great ability and potential to develop into a sort of Jalen McMillan type receiver. Just from looking at his tape, you can tell this guy is very athletic, with the ability to make defenders miss, both while running routes and once the ball is in his hands. He has the ability to get separation from defenders on his route and the hands to reel in even the most wayward of passes.
This season for Long Beach Poly, Robinson had 68 catches for 900 yards and 9 touchdowns. This included a 5 catch, 135 yard, 1 touchdown effort in the first game of the season.
In addition to Washington, Robinson was pursued by Notre Dame, Colorado, USC and Utah, among others. He also took an official visit to Syracuse and another to Utah before committing to the Huskies, per 247 Sports.
Robinson’s path to the field could be a long one, as Jalen McMillan’s draft status is up in the air as of now. Aside from Jalen McMillan, Germie Bernard, Taeshon Lyons, Giles Jackson, Denzel Boston and Keith Reynolds figure to be the five projected receivers next year to get regular playing time, assuming Polk goes to the Draft and the Huskies don’t get a transfer portal receiver. Given time and development, Robinson could develop into a special player and another weapon in the Huskies’ vaunted passing attack.
