Century (Fla.) Northview cornerback and Penn State commitment Neiko Robinson got the news of sanctions being levied against his future program on Monday morning, but remains committed to the Nittany Lions for now.
“I mean, it’s hurtful. It’s hurtful to see the school that you are planning on going to can’t even go to a bowl game until you’re a junior. That hurts,” said Robinson. “To see that happen to them and to see it happen to a staff and a football program that didn’t have anything to do with it - they didn’t commit any NCAA violations. It was a crime. They weren’t paying players or anything like that. I don’t see why they got punished.”
The three-star prospect said that, for now, he’s still committed to the Nittany Lions. He also admitted that he would be exploring other options through February.
“I’m still committed to Penn State, but I still have to explore my options through signing day, and that’s when I’ll sign,” he said.
Robinson attended camp at Florida State last week, and said that Purdue has been one school expressing more interest as of late.
The 5-foot-11, 170-pound prospect had offers from UAB and North Texas when he committed to Penn State in June, and has since added another from South Alabama.
