Virginia lands one of state’s top 10 prospects in LB Robinson

Chooses Wahoos over Virginia Tech, Tennessee and Penn State

By Jerry Ratcliffe


Former UVA star linebacker Clint Sintim, now the Cavaliers’ linebackers coach, built a strong relationship with one of the state’s top prospects over the past five months and that paid huge dividends on Friday afternoon.

Kamren Robinson, the No. 8 overall prospect in the state, announced on his Instagram account that he had committed to Virginia. The 3-star from Essex High School in Tappahannock is a 6-foot-2, 215-pound linebacker.

Robinson chose UVA over Virginia Tech, Tennessee, Penn State, Florida State, Pitt, Ole Miss, Boston College, Indiana, South Carolina and others.

Virginia offered Robinson on Feb. 2 and he visited Charlottesville on June 17 during Tony Elliott’s football camps. He had already taken a liking to Sintim, who will be his position coach at UVA.

Robinson is the fifth in-state player to commit to Virginia for the Class of 2023.
