4-star DB Jammie Robinson picks South Carolina over Kentucky

Mark Stoops and company really wanted this guy.


The Kentucky Wildcats are still looking to fill out the depth chart in the defensive backfield, and after today’s big commitments, they are going to have to keep looking.

Four-star defensive back Jammie Robinson made his official announcement today, and the Georgia native will be taking his talents to Columbia to play for the South Carolina Gamecocks.

This came shortly after four-star cornerback Jay Ward picked the LSU Tigers over Kentucky. Thankfully, four-star defensive back MJ Devonshire picked Kentucky earlier in the day.

Robinson, a four-star recruit and the 24th-best safety via Rivals, was a star defender for Lee County High School in Leesburg, GA, and he was one of the best defensive back recruits still on the board for the 2019 class. On January 21st, Robinson announced the final four schools on his list: South Carolina, Auburn, Tennessee, and Kentucky.

Will Muschamp has to be pleased to land Robinson, who should come in and immediately be ready to contribute on special teams and perhaps even in the rotation of the defensive backfield. To get a four-star player this late in the process is a heck of a last minute commitment.

Robinson logged 105 tackles and two interceptions, including one returned for a touchdown, in his senior season. He is listed as both a corner back and a safety, depending on which recruiting website you visit. That kind of versatility will come in handy when he’s fighting for playing time in the SEC.

Kentucky may have come up short, but they still defensive back commitments Quandre Mosley, Brandin Echols, Moses Douglass, Taj Dodson, MJ Devonshire and Jalen Geiger. That’s a very good group of players to build Kentucky’s secondary with.
