National Signing Day 2017: Western Pennsylvania star Kenny Robinson signs with West Virginia

Imani Christian Academy standout Kenny Robinson sent his National Letter of Intent to the West Virginia coaching staff this morning, and will be continuing his football career as a Mountaineer.

The Pittsburgh-area native originally committed to West Virginia at the end of October, but the Iowa State’s Matt Campbell and his staff began to put the full-court press shortly afterward. Robinson visited the Cyclones the weekend of January 13th and followed that up with a visit to Morgantown the following weekend, where he reaffirmed his commitment to Mountaineer head coach Dana Holgorsen and shut his recruitment down.

The 6’-2”, 200lb athlete is projected to play as a safety in West Virginia’s defense, but could bulk up a bit and move to an outside linebacker spot sometime down the road, if necessary. Robinson camped at West Virginia in 2015 and won the camp MVP award after lining up on both sides of the ball in the 95-degree weather that day, showing off his talent and stamina.

In addition to West Virginia and Iowa State, Robinson held offers from Pittsburgh, Virginia Tech and Cincinnati.
