Running back Jovon Robinson is an Auburn Tiger ... again

Though he took an unusual path to get there, it looks like running back Jovon Robinson is going to end up at Auburn after all.

“I have taken visits and evaluated every school that offered me the opportunity to be a part of their program, and after careful thought and consideration, I have chosen to verbally commit to Auburn University," said Robinson in a release.

Robinson, the top-ranked junior college running back in the nation, joins the Tigers 2015 class. Which isn't all that out of the ordinary, as Auburn gets a lot of top recruits, but let's not forget that Robinson was also a member of Auburn's 2012 class. 

Robinson signed with Auburn in 2012 and participated in practice with the team for a few weeks before he was ruled academically ineligible after it was discovered a guidance counselor at his high school had changed at least one of his grades. That led to Robinson enrolling at Georgia Military College, where he set a junior college record with 2,387 rushing yards and 34 touchdowns last season en route to being named the NJCAA Offensive Player of the Year.

Hopefully this will be the last time Robinson needs to commit to the Tigers.
