The number of sides to a rectangle and the number of undefeated seasons Kellen Moore would have had, but for of being a TOTAL of 5 points short in key moments in his career. Today, we will be highlighting the anchor of the Bronco secondary…

#4, Rodney Robinson, RS Junior, Safety



Height: 5’8″

Weight: 180

High school: Cajon HS (San Bernadino, CA)

How’d he get to The Blue™?

Rodney was a 3-star recruit coming out of high school. Offered by multiple Mountain West schools and a few PAC-12 Schools (and was leaning heavily toward SDSU). Boise State swooped in and got the commitment. Rodney enrolled at Boise State on August 1st, 2020.


“The Graduate”

I’ll let you old school movie buffs work that one out. And yes, I know it doesn’t exactly fit, but I like it. It sounds dignified. So, it’s staying!


Former Cincinnati Reds pitcher, Edison Volquez…at least in this picture. Basically none of the others though.

Career Highlights

Rodney played a fair amount in 2021 and finished with 21 tackles and a pass defensed. However, he was named a starter at the beginning of last season and really made his mark then, racking up 48 tackles (2.5 for loss), and 3 interceptions. If you’d like to see the highlights from his junior year of high school, they can be viewed here.

2023 Prospectus

Mr. Robinson will be a starter at safety in 2023. In fact, that’s not even speculation. That’s what it said on the piece of paper that the Boise State Sports Information Director handed me yesterday at the press conference. Not only will Rodney be a starter, but I expect that he will be one of the most valuable contributors to the defense. His work ethic and ability have put him in a position where he has become an extremely consistent player that’s capable of flash plays every now and again too. Plays that SHOULD have included a safety, as the header image for this article depicts. I took that photo myself and I was standing right there. Totes a safety. But that’s Mountain West officiating for you!

Is he on Twitter?

Yes, and he and I are of one mind on this topic:

Completely made up fact

Rodney Robinson isn’t advocating for a Raising Cane’s to come here out of a pure love for Raising Cane’s. He’s hoping that it creates price wars between them and Dave’s Hot Chicken to drive down the prices of both and, truth be told, we are of the same mind on that as well!
