Ryan Robinson Jr. committed to LSU as a Preferred Walk-On.

One of Brian Kelly’s goals in shaping his roster at LSU centers around attracting walk-ons he feels can contribute at the SEC level. The Tigers landed one of those guys, as three-star cornerback Ryan Robinson Jr. committed as a preferred walk-on.

In the 5-foot-11, 180-pound range and out of Edna Karr High School in New Orleans, Robinson landed some impressive offers throughout his recruitment. Nebraska, Auburn, Arkansas, Colorado, Florida State, Michigan State, Oregon, Ole Miss and Mississippi State were some of the schools that offered the No. 28 overall prospect in Louisiana’s 2023 class.

“Everywhere I’ve been, the walk-on program has been instrumental to our success,” Kelly said after LSU completed its first spring under the headman. So, when we talk about instrumental, it’s not only in terms of the ability to add depth, but scholarships, too. I believe that walk-ons should have a chance to earn a scholarship.”

That opportunity was one reason Robinson, who was a three-year starter, opted to walk-on and turn down several scholarship offers still on the table.

Below is a look at some senior highlights of Robinson in action that show the type of player LSU is getting.
