Penn State commit Neiko Robinson (Bratt, Fla./Northview) has been suspended for six games after throwing and landing a punch in a preseason game last week, according to a spokesman from the Florida High School Athletic Association.

FHSAA spokesman Corey Sobers told ESPN that Robinson was suspended through Oct 5. A punch merits between a two- and six-game suspension, Sobers said, and the association believed this situation merited the full six games.

The story was first reported Wednesday by the Pensacola (Fla.) News Journal.

The 6-foot, 162-pound safety is a three-star recruit who committed to Penn State on June 4. He also holds offers from Louisiana Tech, Purdue and UAB. Robinson did not immediately respond to a message seeking comment.

Northview can appeal the decision, but nothing has yet been filed.
