Clemson graduate transfer Jabril Robinson signed a grant-in-aid for the 2018-19 academic year with West Virginia, coach Dana Holgorsen announced on Thursday.
Details from Joe Buettner over at Big 12 DieHards:
The 6-foot-2, 270-pound defensive tackle will be immediately eligible as a graduate transfer in 2018.
EerSports.com’s Chris Anderson was the first to report the news.
He joins the Mountaineers after signing with Clemson in 2014 as a 3-star prospect, according to Rivals.com. Robinson saw limited action for Clemson’s vaunted defenses, however, the last three years.
Robinson, a product of North Brunswick High School in Leland, N.C., played in 11 games and 206 snaps for the Tigers in 2017. He recorded 19 tackles, 0.5 tackles for loss and 2 quarterback pressures during Clemson’s run to the College Football Playoff.
The reserve defensive lineman announced his intentions to transfer from Clemson on Jan. 29.
Clemson’s defensive line is obviously loaded, so it makes sense that Robinson would seek playing time elsewhere. Perhaps he can start for the Mountaineers in his final college season.
