Torn knee ligaments threatened to derail the recruiting process for Ta’Mere Robinson.

But even after the talented pass rusher’s junior season ended because of surgery, scholarship offers from the likes of USC, Miami and Texas A&M kept rolling in to open 2022.

On Friday, though, it was all about one of the first schools to recruit him. Penn State had offered Robinson more than two years ago, and it culminated in the Pittsburgh native choosing the Nittany Lions on Friday.

At 6-foot-4, 225 pounds, Robinson provides some flexibility for Penn State — he could be a linebacker at the next level, but he certainly has the frame to grow into a defensive end.

Robinson’s decision ultimately came down to Penn State, Miami and Virginia Tech, with all three finalists getting official visits last month.
