Army sophomore slotback Tyrell Robinson has decided to enter the transfer portal, he announced Friday morning.
Robinson, a game-breaker in the Black Knights’ rushing and passing game, was second on the team in rushing and receiving in 2021.
“This past season has been incredible and the love I have for my teammates, the Army football staff and the Army fans is unmatched by words,” Robinson posted on Twitter. “I appreciate the support and the love that everyone has showed me and I would like to say thank you with all of my heart.”
“Thank you to my family for the support and advice that they have given me while making this tough decision. Furthermore, through a lot of conversations and thought, I have made the decision to enter the transfer portal with 3 years of eligibility.”
Robinson’s announcement comes one day after top receiver Isaiah Alston declared that he was entering the transfer portal. Robinson averaged 8.5 yards per carry and rushed for 609 yards and three touchdowns. He also caught 12 passes for 340 yards (28.3 yard average) and three touchdowns and was Army’s primary punt returner.
Robinson was one of the most electric running backs to play on the banks of the Hudson in any era of the program’s storied history. All of Robinson’s six touchdowns were 24 yards or more including three of 70 yards or more.
