It's the Hokies for Tayvion Robinson.
The 6-0, 165 pound Cox HS standout committed to Virginia Tech over finalists Virginia, Maryland, Nebraska, Ohio State, and South Carolina.
The 247Sports Composite ranks Robinson as a 3-star (0.8820) ATH, WR, S. Though Rivals ranks the electric do-it-all skill player as a 4-star athlete. And that's not hyperbole either. Robinson racked up yards and touchdowns as a wide receiver, quarterback, and running back last season.
Robinson accounted for 1694 yards from scrimmage for Cox, playing quarterback (25 of 62 for 539 yards, 5TD's) as well as running back (174 carries for 1096 yards, 16TD's) and wide receiver. He also had 465 return yards, a special teams touchdown and three pick-sixes among his six interceptions from the defensive side of the ball.
That effort earned him Beach District co-offensive player of the year honors. He also straps it up at defensive back plus returns punts and kicks.

Moreover, his play on the field has earned the respect of opposing coaches in the region.
"He is a dynamic playmaker," (Princess Anne coach Jelani) Fair said. "He is definitely a guy you want to have the ball in his hands."
Green Run coach Brandon Williams, who did see Robinson on the field, agreed.
"I truly think Tayvion is one of – if not the best – dynamic player not only in the Beach District, but the state," Williams said. "He is the type of athlete that can beat you on both sides of the ball."
