Texas A&M football recruit arrested on robbery charge

A Judson football player who recently signed a letter of intent to play for Texas A&M University was arrested Tuesday morning, Bexar County Sheriff's Office spokesman James Keith said.

Alton Robinson, the No. 1 high school football recruit in San Antonio, was picked up around 10:20 a.m. at Judson High School, Judson ISD spokesman Steve Linscomb said. Robinson, 17, was charged with robbery, Keith said.

Keith said the arrest came after Robinson's ex-girlfriend filed a criminal complaint with a BCSO investigator on Monday.

The ex-girlfriend told the investigator that on Feb. 9, she came home from a store around 11:15 p.m. and found Robinson hiding in some bushes near her driveway, Keith said.

As she attempted to go in the house, she said Robinson ripped her purse off her shoulder and ran away, Keith said. She was slightly injured during the struggle. As she chased Robinson, he dropped the purse but took her cell phone, Keith said.

The ex-girlfriend also told the investigator that a similar incident happened in May 2015, Keith said. She claimed that Robinson approached her car and stole her purse. A struggle ensued and the girl suffered minor injuries, Keith said.

Robinson appeared before a magistrate who set bond at $20,000.


Robinson signed to play football at Texas A&M

Robinson officially signed with Texas A&M on National Signing Day on Feb. 3.

He committed to play for the Aggies over offers from Baylor, California, Houston and Alabama.

Robinson was rated as a 3-star recruit on various recruiting sites including and

He was named to the 6A All-State third team defense in 2015.

Texas A&M has not released an official statement on Robinson's status.
