The Penn State football program is losing a star player with Chop Robinson officially declaring for the 2024 NFL Draft, per Jordan Reid of ESPN. Robinson also posted a lengthy message to X to announce his decision.

‘Penn State EDGE/OLB Chop Robinson announces that he will not play in the team's bowl game and enter his name into the 2024 NFL Draft.'

Here's part of Robinson's message:

“After careful thought, I have decided to forego our bowl game and declare for the 2024 NFL Draft. From one dream to the next, I am excited to continue this next chapter.”

Robinson also won't play for Penn State in the Peach Bowl against Ole Miss on December 30, electing to prepare for the NFL Draft in an unsurprising decision.

Robinson is widely regarded as a first-round pick and he had 11 tackles with four sacks in 2023. However, he played in just six games due to injuries. He was out for a month and returned for the Rutgers game.

Robinson has some comparisons to former Penn State football star Micah Parsons, who has taken the NFL by storm with the Dallas Cowboys.

His quickness is off the charts, and NFL teams will be lining up to see him at the combine.

It isn't surprising that Robinson is sitting out for the Peach Bowl game, especially after he sustained injuries and had to miss a good chunk of time during the season.

Robinson's time at Penn State ends with 41 tackles, 17.5 tackles for loss and 9.5 sacks, and he has a ton of potential and could end up as a first-round pick by the time the draft rolls around.
