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.
