Keilan Robinson commits to Texas

Texas added another transfer from Tuscaloosa on Sunday evening. Alabama running back Keilan Robinson announced his commitment to Texas, adding another talented back to Stan Drayton’s position group.

Robinson played in eight games in 2019 for the Crimson Tide, carrying the ball 39 times for 254 yards and two touchdowns. He opted out of the 2020 season due to COVID-19 concerns.

A product of St. John’s in Washington, D.C., Robinson was a four-star prospect in the class of 2019. He chose Alabama over 20 other offers.

Excerpt from the Recruiting Notebook

Strengths: A compact and well-proportioned runner. Great footwork out of his stance and presses the hole quickly and decisively. Great vision. One-cut and gone runner who will excel in the outside zone game. Exceptional cut, acceleration and top end speed. Has lateral wiggle evident on film and seems like a slippery menace. Legs move on contact and is always leaning forward. Does not give up on plays and always seems to get something for his efforts. Sark knows him from Bama so he’s a known commodity to the staff.

Areas for Improvement/Concern: A lot of unknowns as there is limited film on this player. Pass protection/receiving are unknown. Hasn’t played meaningful football in a while. Build and durability likely different now.

Robinson is the sixth transfer addition ahead of the 2021 season.
