The transfer market is heating up, and it looks like the latest player to try his luck elsewhere is out of Fort Worth. According to 247Sports’ HornedFrogBlitz, TCU star quarterback Shawn Robinson has decided to transfer from the program. ESPN later confirmed the report.
Robinson’s departure leaves a big void in the quarterback room for the Horned Frogs. Despite being only a sophomore, Robinson represented TCU at Big 12 Media Days and showed he was ready to be a leader in the locker room. He started in the Frog’s seven games before suffering an undisclosed season-ending injury.
Before the injury though, things weren’t going smooth. Robinson finished the season with 1,334 passing yards and nine touchdown and was completing 61 percent of his passes, but his play was up and down with eight interceptions.
Robinson arrived to Fort Worth with a lot of promise. He was a highly-touted recruit, and saw game time as a freshman. He played in six games behind Kenny Hill, and started one game when Hill was injured.
Michael Collins, who transferred to TCU from Penn, filled in for Robinson after the injury, and is currently next-season’s most-likely starter. However, don’t be surprised if TCU brings in another transfer to help fill what is now a thin quarterback room. Collins will be the starter for the Horned Frogs against California in the Cheez-It Bowl on December 26.
