Recent News's Brandon Marcello noted that "simply put, [Auburn junior RB] Jovon Robinson is the future."
This past season belonged to Peyton Barber, who opted to forego his final season of eligibility to enter the NFL Draft. Now, it's Robinson's time to shine. The former five-star recruit rushed for 639 yards (5.5 YPC) and a trio of touchdowns on 117 carries this past season. He played in just eight games due to an ankle injury, but came on strong down the stretch with at least 90 yards rushing in five of his last six contests. "My performance throughout the last part of the season," Robinson said, "I think was a testament to my work ethic and during the summer and during the spring and during the winter." If the 6-foot-1, 220-pound junior can stay healthy, he has the talent to produce big numbers in 2016. DFS players, remember the name. Jan 19 - 6:26 PM

Auburn junior RB Jovon Robinson had 25 carries for 121 yards and a touchdown in Wednesday's 31-10 thrashing of Memphis in the Birmingham Bowl.

Robinson received almost double the attempts that Peyton Barber did (13 for 44). The junior had no problem pushing Barber into a backseat role when he returned from injury on Halloween and heads into the winter as the clear No. 1 RB. Barber acquitted himself well enough this year, finishing with 1,020 rushing yards, most of them accrued with Robinson on the shelf. He and Robinson -- a 6-foot-1, 220-pounder who was a five-star recruit out of high school -- will form one of the nation's most dangerous backfield duos in 2016.

Auburn junior RB Jovon Robinson had 12 carries for 93 yards in Saturday's 20-13 loss to Georgia.

We're confused that Auburn didn't utilize Robinson more often this afternoon. When they did, he made plays, just like he did last week while tearing up Texas A&M. But the school rotated Robinson today with the less effective Peyton Barber. The pathetic passing attack cost the Tigers this game, but they'd really help their cause if they simply began handing off to their most dangerous playmaker more often. Robinson, a 6-foot-1, 220-pound JUCO transfer product, was a five-star recruit out of high school.

Auburn JUCO transfer RB Jovon Robinson remains sidelined by the ankle injury he suffered in the season-opening game against Louisville.

Robinson tweaked the ankle in the second quarter against Louisville two weeks ago and he's still working his way back from it. Said HC Gus Malzahn, "He practiced a little bit [last] Thursday but he just wasn't ready to go. He's day-to-day. Hopefully he'll be ready this week." The 6-foot-1, 220-pound JUCO transfer product was a five-star recruit out of high school. His injury has helped open opportunities for Peyton Barber, who was just moved to the top of the depth chart on Tuesday.

Auburn views JUCO transfer Jovon Robinson as the school's best every down, between the tackles RB, according to ESPN's Travis Haney.

Haney starts by saying those who cover the team believe Robinson was in "the dog house" during camp, but the staff will rely on him to carry the load, like Tre Mason and Cameron Artis-Payne. Expect Roc Thomas to see snaps on the edge in the hopes of creating explosive plays, likely off motion or sweeps. Head coach Gus Malzahn has really created a plug and play system, but it helps to have great talent.
