Jakob Robinson is headed home.

Well, almost.

The former Orem High standout and transfer from Utah State announced Wednesday afternoon on Twitter that he has committed to join the BYU football program.

A three-star prospect coming out of high school, per 247Sports, and member of USU’s 2020 recruiting class, Robinson played in four games for the Aggies last season — against Boise State, Fresno State, New Mexico and Air Force. The cornerback finished his true freshman season with eight tackles and a sack. He recorded a career-best five tackles in his first career start, against Fresno State.

At 5-10, 165 pounds, Robinson was the 20th-best recruit in the state of Utah his senior year of high school and helped the Tigers to a third consecutive state title, finishing with 38 tackles and six interceptions.

Robinson entered the transfer portal earlier this month, on Feb. 1, declaring in a tweet, “New chapter.”

He will have four years of eligibility remaining.
