The sophomore wide out leads all Hokies with two receiving touchdowns and ranks second on the team with 14 receptions and 166 receiving yards.
Earlier in the season, Robinson reached an impressive milestone of 1,000 career receiving yards doing so against Middle Tennessee.
In the Hokies’ 21-10 victory over Richmond, Robinson returned a punt for 60 yards to record his first career punt return touchdown. His efforts against the Spiders was good enough for him to be named ACC Co-Specialist of the Week for the first time in his collegiate career.
In 2020, the Virginia Beach native led the Hokies with 38 receptions for 592 yards and ranked second with three touchdown receptions.
Robinson will be the second wide receiver to wear the No. 25 jersey for the Hokies in the 2021 season. Kaleb Smith wore the number in the Hokies’ lone road matchup against West Virginia.
