Rashard Robinson’s wait to join LSU is over.

The highly-touted cornerback out a Florida has been cleared by the NCAA Clearinghouse, which had been looking over the four-star recruits transcript before giving its all clear, the school confirmed.

Robinson, who is out of Pompano Beach, Fla., is expected to be in the mix for early playing time after coming out of Blanche Ely High School, which produced past LSU signees Patrick Peterson and Avery Peterson.

He committed a year ago, and is rated as the No. 24 cornerback prospect in the country by Rivals.com.

Meanwhile, the Tigers also got another indirectly related good piece of recruiting news Wednesday.

Bealoved Brown, a sprinter out of Ozen High School , was also cleared by the NCAA, which had been vetting a standardized test score ahead of admitting the Beaumont, Texas, native, a LSU spokesman confirmed.

She is expected to formalize her enrollment this afternoon. The deadline to enroll and register for classes is next Wednesday.

Brown is the older sister of cornerback Tony Brown, who is the No. 17 prospect nationally, according to Rivals.com. The 6-foot, 182-pound Brown has said his sister’s choice of school would factor heavily into his decision about where to take his services when he signs a letter of intent in February.

“It will not necessarily go to the top, but it would be in the back of my mind that’s where my sister is,” Tony Brown told The Beaumont Enterprise in December. “I would greatly take them into consideration. It would be an advantage for us to beat the same school and possibly in the same dorm and have somebody to lean on.”
