Robinson transferred into the program in June as a rising junior out of the University of Guelph in Canada. COVID-19 canceled the Canadian college football season this past spring. The 6-foot-8, 250-pound defensive lineman recorded 65 tackles, 12.5 sacks and 17.5 tackles for loss in his first two seasons in college.
