UCF Lands Three-Star LB Samarian Robinson

The UCF Knights are adding a major player in the 2024 class in three-star linebacker Samarian Robinson. Robinson is a lengthy, athletic, tackling machine, and in his junior season at Tallahassee Lincoln high school, he totaled 93 tackles, (38 solo) and two forced fumbles while playing alongside Georgia linebacker commit, Raylen Wilson.

Robinson earned the rank of a three-star recruit and currently sits as the 42nd-ranked linebacker in the country, as well as the 82nd-ranked player in the state of Florida.


Robinson earned a composite score of 87.000 from 247Sports, and turned down offers from UAB, Louisville, Florida A&M, and Arkansas to join the Knights, and play in the Big 12 Conference.

The 6-foot-3, 215-pound hybrid linebacker provides a unique size and speed combination that will give the Knights a sideline-to-sideline player that also has the ability to be a great run-stopper.

Samarian Robinson joins fellow three-star signee, defensive lineman, Sincere Edwards who announced his decision to attend UCF which made him the first hard-commit of the 2024 class. The class ranks as the 39th best class of the 2024 recruitment ranks but with Robinson joining the ranks, look for that number to continue to climb.
