OXFORD, Miss. — When elite UCF transfer wide receiver Jaylon Robinson hit the portal in late April, there was no question he would become one of the most sought-after offensive transfers. On Sunday afternoon, he chose to #TransferToTheSip, joining Ole Miss head coach Lane Kiffin and the country’s top transfer class.

It is a no-brainer as to why so many programs were looking to catch Robinson’s attention.
During the 2021 season, he tallied 322 receiving yards on 18 receptions. In 2020, he notched 979 yards on 55 catches. He is one of the most electric and explosive receivers, averaging 17.9 yards per catch last season as he made appearances in seven games for UCF.

Originally set to make a commitment on May 18th, Robinson announced he would be pushing up the date three days to May 15th. Like they say, “when you know, you know.”
His final list included Tennessee, the hometown team in TCU, and a late push from the Miami Hurricanes.
The momentum continues to grow on the Rebels’ recruiting trail as Coach Kiffin and staff are reloading and on the rise. The addition of an elite receiver to the already explosive offense — and the nation’s number one transfer portal class — will be keep the Ole Miss offense dangerous.
It didn’t take long for Ole Miss or Robinson to recognize the potential this match in Mississippi could mean for one another. After all, two days after Robinson hit the portal he wasted no time making an official visit to Oxford.
That’s loveeee🤞🏾💯 https://t.co/7pfn1abQ9j

It’s pretty cut and dry why Robinson would want to bring his talents to the ‘Sip. We all know just what kind of offensive guru Lane Kiffin is, and the Ole Miss offensive playbook is made for an athlete like him.
Another masterful portal move for the Ole Miss Rebels. Welcome to the Sip Jay Flash!
