2024 Safety Recruit Clinton Robinson May Find a Home in West Virginia



WVU football recruit Clinton Robinson

Moving to Morgantown to attend WVU wouldn’t require 2024 recruit Clinton Robinson having to move that far.

WV Sports Now spoke with the all around athlete who currently attends Keystone Oaks High School in the Pittsburgh area about his recent trip to West Virginia. Robinson visited the WVU football program at the end of March in hopes of impressing the coaches and experiencing what it could be like to be a Mountaineer.

The 6’1″ and 195 pound Robinson is one of those players that is just looking for a chance to prove himself. It’s possible WVU could become his best option to do just that. “They think I got a real chance and I’m a great athlete. They want me to come down there over the summer,” Robinson said he was told by the West Virginia coaching staff.

Sometimes when an athlete plays multiple potions, some wonder where he actually fits and that can hurt his recruitment. In the case of Robinson, he knows the Mountaineers see him as a safety. That makes tons of sense too since West Virginia has made it known that athleticism is exactly what they are looking for in members of the secondary.

Robinson has been awarded three stars by at least one major recruiting outlet, which suggests his talent is not going unrecognized nationally. There even seems to be more interest in Robinson than how it may appear to someone only looking at his list of offers. Robinson explained that Penn State and Syracuse are schools he’s communicated with in addition to his publicized offers from Akron, Miami (OH), Monmouth and Tempe.

With a year left of high school and plenty of time to put his skills on film, Robinson may garner more attention before he’s forced to commit somewhere. “I’ve talked to the head coach a lot more since my visit. He said he like my film and I’ll be a good fit for WVU football,” Robinson said while revealing he’s had ongoing talks with Neal Brown.

Robinson stands as a hidden gem type prospect, but also one that could very well find a home 70 miles south of interstate 79.
