He’ll also look for a third top-10 finish in the TSSAA Class-A State Championship after finishing fourth in 2017 and sixth in 2018.

He led the Irish to a District 9A title and Region 5A team championship in 2018 and been a state qualifier all three seasons as a high school player.

In addition to his prep work, Robinson has been a fixture on the summer youth tours in the state of Tennessee. In 2018 alone, he posted five top-10 finishes, including runner-up honors in the 54-hole Challenge at Greystone—site of Austin Peay’s annual fall home tournament—and closed the fall with a win at the Nashville Junior Open in October.

“Morgan is a very talented young man,” said Austin Peay head coach Robbie Wilson. “With the access and opportunity to play and work hard every day, the sky is the limit. He has the physical gifts and talent to go a long ways in this game and I look forward to helping him in his development over the next several years.”

Robinson joins Booneville, MS, native Tate Dickerson as a fall signee for the Governors.
