Under Armour All-American Profile: Devyn Robinson

If her performance at the U18 World Championship in September is any indication, Devyn Robinson is the best blocker of her age in the country—actually, maybe even the world.

Position: Middle Blocker

Height: 6-3

Hometown: Ankeny, Iowa

High School: Ankeny Centennial High School

Club: Iowa Powerplex

College Commitment: Wisconsin


The Ankeny, Iowa, native collected 23 blocks at the age group world championship in Egypt, the most on the team and tied for third among all players. At the end of the tournament, the FIVB dubbed her the best middle blocker of the tournament. In 2018, Robinson also contributed to the U.S. youth national team’s gold medal at the U18 NORCECA Continental Championships.


Next year, Robinson will join the Wisconsin roster, following in the footsteps of current UW middle Dana Rettke, who has also made a name for herself on the international stage. PrepVolleyball ranks Robinson as the No. 14 recruit in the Class of 2020. 

“Devyn has the potential to be a big-time player for us,” Wisconsin head coach Kelly Sheffield said. “She wants to own the net, which is a mentality that every great blocker must have. She can hit first, second, and third tempo and off of one or two feet. I can see her in the middle or on the right for us.”

This fall, Robinson totalled 214 kills (4.8 per set), hitting .311, and 51 blocks for Ankeny Centennial High School despite missing a few weeks to compete at U18 Worlds and was named to the All-Iowa team, as well as the Under Armour All-America First Team. Ankeny Centennial, with Robinson among the key starters, also won a Class 5A state championship in 2018.
