TUSCALOOSA—Alabama offensive tackle Cam Robinson was one of five semifinalists named for the Outland Trophy on Wednesday, according to the Greater Omaha Sports Commission.

A three-year starter, Robinson has anchored the Crimson Tide’s front line since signing in its 2014 class.

The Monroe, La., native has blocked for 10 100-yard rushing games this season and 27 100-yard games for his career. His play at left tackle has guided Alabama to 41.2 points a game, which is first in the Southeastern Conference and 14th nationally. In the passing game, Robinson has aided Jalen Hurts to 2,032 yards and 27 touchdowns. Named after John Outland, the Outland Trophy is presented to the nation’s top interior lineman.

Ex-Tide players Chris Samuels (1999), Andre Smith (2008) and Barrett Jones (2011) all won the award.

Three finalists will be named on Nov. 22, and a winner will be announced on Dec. 8 via ESPN in Atlanta.
