Prized Pittsburgh prospect set for Penn State return – 247Sports


Penn State has adopted an active approach while putting out scholarship offers to Pennsylvania prospects in the 2023 recruiting class. Among rising juniors across the state, Ta’Mere Robinson is in elite company and his presence will be in high demand as college programs restart on-campus recruiting efforts.

The Brashear (Pittsburgh) High School standout confirmed that he will be in Happy Valley on Sunday, when Penn State hosts its White Out camp.

Robinson, who received a Nittany Lions offer last April, is evaluated by 247Sports as Pennsylvania’s No. 3 prospect in the 2023 class. Nationally, he is the No. 4 linebacker and No. 67 overall talent in 247Sports rankings.

The 6-foot-2, 200-pound prospect has secondary experience and is viewed as a versatile defender. Analyst Brian Dohn served up this scouting report:

Can play safety or grow into linebacker at the college level. Can fill out to 215 pounds with ease. High level talent joined football team a few weeks into season. Also plays basketball. Excellent ball skills down the field. Shows speed to play outside numbers. Willing to play physical in run game and fill gaps. Shows quickness and speed playing down hill. Future position will be decided by body development, particularly as strength and mass is added throughout frame. Has to continue technique development with footwork. Relies heavily on athleticism. Starter at high-level Power 5 program.

Robinson recently spent time at Penn State. He traveled to Beaver Stadium on April 23 for the Nittany Lions’ last spring practice, which was opened to limited public admission. Due to NCAA rules, Robinson could not interact with PSU staff members in person during that experience, but it was a notable trip nonetheless.

“It was important for me to go because I keep in touch with them weekly,” he told 247Sports. “I needed to get up there again, especially after the ‘White Out’ game I attended in 2019. … It was great. It’s always great to be in the stadium. For that to only be a practice, it was lit. The vibes up at Penn State are always great.”

Starting Tuesday, coaches can meet face to face with prospects and assess athletes live in camp action for the first time since COVID concerns swept across America. An impressive group of prospects is already scheduled to see State College this week and, from a long-term perspective, few figure to be as prioritized as Robinson.

He reached a double-digit offer total earlier this year, with Arkansas, Kentucky, Maryland, Notre Dame, and Tennessee offering since March. Robinson is among the anticipated headliners for a Tuesday evening recruiting event at Pitt, according to 247Sports recruiting director Steve Wiltfong, and shared on Tuesday that he also intends to visit Rutgers (June 12), Ohio State (June 15, 16 or 22) and Notre Dame (TBD).

Penn State does not carry a commitment in its 2023 class, presenting more than 160 offers to this point.
