Texas Longhorns running back Keilan Robinson announced his decision to declare for the 2024 NFL Draft on Monday, foregoing his remaining year of eligibility.

An explosive playmaker on offense and special teams, Robinson arrived from Alabama along with Steve Sarkisian and spent three years in Austin, appearing in 38 games and making five career starts.

Robinson’s career in burnt orange included 542 rushing yards, 332 receiving yards, and 11 total touchdowns including one kickoff return touchdown and one touchdown on a blocked punt.

He was also just as effective in special teams coverage as he was with the ball in his hands.

Robinson received various accolades for his special teams prowess at Texas, including being named honorable mention All-Big 12 and honorable mention Big 12 Offensive Newcomer of the Year.

Despite Robinson’s departure, the running back room will still be loaded with depth with the returns of Cedric Baxter, Jayden Blue, Savion Red, and Tre Wisner and the additions of Jerrick Gibson and Christian Clark in the 2024 recruiting class.
