West Virginia’s secondary was a question mark entering this season, and through up-and-down play at times this season, the Mountaineers are battling toward another Bowl game.
However, with quite a few veteran names reaching the end of their playing careers upon the end of this season, reinforcements will be needed. One of those players, in the future, could be 2023 four-star cornerback Antonio Robinson from Florida Christian High School in Miami, Florida.
Robinson (5-foot-10, 170 pounds) narrowed down over 20 offers into his Top 12 of Michigan, Ole Miss, Virginia Tech, Texas, Mississippi State, Kentucky, Arkansas, Miami, South Carolina, Florida, Penn State and WVU.

Robinson has been a leading figure in Florida Christian’s 10-0 start to the season. He’s rushed for 332 yards and eight touchdowns on 31 carries, caught 15 passes for 246 yards and three touchdowns on offense, and he’s racked up 48 tackles (17 solo), nine tackles for loss, two interceptions and defended eight passes.
So… there hasn’t been an area where he hasn’t contributed because he’s also recorded 320 return yards this season.
According to 247Sports, Robinson is the 176th-ranked recruit in the cycle, checking in as the 24th-ranked cornerback and the 39th-ranked recruit from Florida. Rivals rates him as the 34th-ranked cornerback in the cycle.
Neither 247Sports nor Rivals has projected a landing spot for Robinson yet, but he’d be the first recruit in WVU head coach Neal Brown’s 2023 class.
