Rivals100 running back Kylan Robinson of Tampa Chamberlain has decided to make a life-long dream come true and play his college football at the University of Miami.
The 6-foot-2, 215-pound Robinson chose Miami ahead of offers from Ohio State and South Carolina.
"When I went down there, I just felt like I was part of their family," Robinson said. "It was the place I always wanted to go"

Tim Walton was the Miami recruiter of record for Robinson. Hurricanes head coach Larry Coker also participated in the process following the dismissal of offensive coordinator Dan Werner, Robinson's original recruiter.
The firing of Werner didn't faze Robinson.
"It didn't really bother me because I know anybody they get is going to be a good coach," he said.
Rivals.com introduced Robinson to fans of football recruiting when he made his debut in the Rivals100 in December. He is currently the No. 93 overall prospect nationally.
Robinson moved to Florida from Anchorage, Alaska. He was playing tight end before switching to running back early in his senior year.
Despite his commitment to the Hurricanes, Robinson had nice things to say about the Gamecocks and Buckeyes.
"I just liked (South Carolina) and they offered immediate playing time," he said. "(Ohio State) had nice facilities with their big stadium and all."
Robinson is the No. 12 overall prospect in the state of Florida and the nation's No. 11 running back prospect.
