A-Rob Declares for NFL Draft

Penn State's record-setting receiver is giving up his final season with the Nittany Lions to turn professional.

Penn State first-team All-America wide receiver Allen Robinson (Southfield, Mich.) has decided to forgo his final year of college eligibility and will enter the 2014 National Football League Draft.

The 2012 and 2013 Big Ten Richter-Howard Receiver of the Year, Robinson earned seven All-America honors after a stellar 2013 season. The standout junior was selected a first-team All-American by CBSSports.com, Sporting News and Phil Steele's College Football, a second-team honoree by the FWAA, SI.com and Athlon Sports and a third-team honoree by the Associated Press.

“It was a great honor to play at Penn State,” stated Robinson. “I am blessed to have played with, and for, the people in the Penn State football program. This is a decision that I believe is best for my family and I, and I wish all the best to the university and all my teammates.”

“We are very excited for Allen,” said interim head coach Larry Johnson. “Allen has meant a great deal to our program at Penn State and we wish him all the best and continued success at the next level.”
