Oregon linebacker looking to transfer

Tyrell Robinson

Oregon was to have a set of twins on the roster this season, but those plans have changed. Freshman (soon to be sophomore) linebacker Tyrell Robinson is on his way out of the program, although his twin brother Tyree Robinson will stay in Eugene.

As originally reported by Duck Territory, Tyrell Robinson has been granted a release from his scholarship, allowing him to pursue other options to continue playing college football and perhaps competing for a better position on a roster.

Robinson appeared in nine games for Oregon in 2013, recording 12 tackles in the process. It is unknown where he will be looking to transfer, but if he transfers to another FBS program he will have to sit out the 2014 season due to NCAA transfer rules. He may play right away this fall if he transfers to a program at the FCS level or below.

Tyree Robinson is expected to contend for a starting job in the defensive secondary. Both Robinson brothers chose to attend Oregon over offers from Washington and USC.

    Probably will come to USC now that Sark is the Head Coach, where these two should’ve attend in the first place.

    Remember, the Pac-12 schools have two years to make their name in college football history, because, come the 2016 season, SC will be ready to rock the college football world again.

    Yep they will try to buy there way back to the top only to be caught and sent back to the bottom.

    I wasn’t aware that Oregon had linebackers.

    Recent Oregon linebackers — Dion Jordan (drafted third) and Kiko Alonso. But yes, in 2013 our linebackers weren’t as good. This year will be better, we’ve returned some pretty good players who will be improved.

    Too bad to lose Robinson, though, I think he’d have been good for us, but perhaps the spring didn’t go well for him. We need defensive depth because of our offensive style.

    Funny about having only two years for the Ducks to make their name. Made the Rose Bowl in 2009 >before< USC's sanctions hit. The Trojans played in the Emerald Bowl, was it? And of course, the Ducks made the national championship in 2010, before any scholarship restrictions hit USC.

    Maybe USC fans should just recognize that other PAC teams are on the rise and you can't skate by any more. The days of year-in, year-out dominance for USC just might be over. And certainly, if you get sanctioned, just have a down year, or have sub-par coaching, you are going to pay.

    It will help USC to have the sanctions ended. But I'm not sure "seven win Sark" is the answer. With all the advantages he had at Washington, he hardly dominated. Maybe he'll be fine at USC, but who would trust the guys who hired Lane Kiffin to get it right this time?

    Fight on Trojans

    I’m just bitter because the Dolphins moved up to draft Dion Jordan and the guy did absolutely nothing last year. Typical Dolphins.

    OK. Since you are willing to admit that you are incapable of “thinking” here’s a crash course for you. The depth of your ignorance of Oregon linebackers is matched only by the height of your no-nothing attitude typical of all envious outsiders. Like basing your opinion of a rookie on just his first year. So, here’s a partial listing. (Partial, because your witless comment is evidence of the need of the “FOR DUMMIES”, level of instruction .)

    Casey Matthews is a def bust lol along with the rest of ur list i like Oregon in the pac 12 but far as matching them up with any real opponent from the SEC besides vanderbilt and kentucky is a waste of time thanks for the playoffs because i always said the SEC title game is the national 🏆
