The Florida State Seminoles are riding high, finding themselves on a two-game win streak and entering their bye week with new-found confidence. One member of the team will no longer be riding with the ‘Noles, however. Wide receiver Bryan Robinson, one of the highest rated recruits from the Class of 2020, has decided to enter his name in the transfer portal to seek a fresh start elsewhere. The 6’1”, 207 pound redshirt freshman is “no longer part of the program,” a Florida State spokesperson confirmed on Monday morning.
Robinson has dealt with injuries throughout his time in Tallahassee, struggling at times even to get on the practice field. He did manage to appear in three games last season and in the Louisville game this season, but did not record any statistics either year. He was named a Seminole Scholar for his excellence in the classroom.
Robinson was a four-star out of Palm Beach Central High School and was rated as the nation’s No. 30 wide receiver and 26th-best overall prospect in Florida by 247Sports Composite. Mike Norvell and WR coach Ron Dugans had to fight to keep Robinson committed as they scrambled to cobble together the Class of 2020 following the long period of uncertainty after Willie Taggart’s firing. Robinson ultimately stuck with FSU over offers from the likes of the Alabama Crimson Tide, Florida Gators, Georgia Bulldogs, Miami (FL) Hurricanes, Michigan Wolverines, Pittsburgh Panthers, and Tennessee Volunteers, largely due to his relationship with Dugans.
