Central Florida wide receiver Jaylon Robinson who is visiting the Miami football program on Wednesday and Thursday has moved up his commitment date from May 18 to the 15 in a tweet posted on Tuesday.  Robinson entered the transfer portal on April 21 and has taken visits to Mississippi, TCU, and Tennessee.

Robinson began his collegiate career with Oklahoma in 2018 before transferring to UCF. Connecting with quarterback Dillon Gabriel who has now ironically transferred to Oklahoma, Robinson broke out with 55 receptions for 979 yards and six touchdowns during the 2020 season.

Robinson was the 440th ranked player, 32nd athlete and 63rd in Texas in 2018. Miami previously added Frank Ladson from Clemson as the only transfer WR to the roster for 2022. Miami has signed 11 transfers since Mario Cristobal was hired as the new head coach in December. Only four transfers have been on offense.
