Bama Freshman Earns Dean’s List Honors
The first semester of college can be one of the more difficult life transitions a person can go through. Usually the first semester is the first time away from parents, responsible for your own decisions and actions.
Alabama early-enrollee Jahquez Robinson did very well with this transition as he has made the Dean's List for academic achievement in his first semester at the Capstone according to his father's twitter post.
In order to earn Dean's List recognition, a student must be enrolled in 12 hours of course work, typically four classes, and must maintain a 3.5 GPA which is equivalent to a B+ average.
While Robinson was likely taking core classes, it is important to note the adversity he and the rest of the students faced last semester. Robinson left his family in Jacksonville, Florida to enroll as a freshman and participate in the Crimson Tide's grueling "Fourth Quarter" workout program, he was academically responsible and was expecting to partake in spring practice prior to it being cancelled. He then dealt with having his classes transition to an online only setting, putting more responsibility on him and the other students to ensure coursework was completed.
A Dean's List honor in the first semester of college shows a mature mindset to handle the unique challenges of this past semester.
Robinson was considered a four-star prospect and the 20th overall cornerback in the 2020 class according to 247Sports. Robinson will compete to replace lots of lost experience in the Crimson Tide secondary as Alabama lost Trevon Diggs, Xavier McKinney, Shyhiem Carter and Jared Mayden.
