Only Allen Robinson Until Penn State Football

It's weird to think that at one time in the past, Allen Robinson was only known as "that wide receiver that Rob Bolden played with in high school". Now he's become to be called "A-Rob", "Thee Smoove" or the Big Ten's 2012 Receiver of the Year.

After making only three receptions in 2011, Robinson exploded onto the scene during last year's Navy game when he caught three touchdown passes on only five receptions. He would have another three-touchdown game later in the season and end up breaking numerous Penn State receiving records on his way to a 77 rec.-1,013 yards-11 TD 2012 campaign. His accomplishments earned him the Big Ten Receiver of the Year award as well as being named first-team All-Big Ten and being put on this year's Biletnikoff Award watchlist.

He won't sneak up on anyone in 2013, but as he proved last year, he has the talent to thrive even with the extra attention.
