One more member of the Clemson football program has announced their intent to transfer. Defensive tackle Jabril Robinson announced Monday that he will be transferring for the 2018 season, however his destination is not known at this time. Robinson, who was a red shirt junior in 2017, earned his bacelor's degree in Parks, Recreation and Tourism Management in December of 2017. This will allow him to transfer to another FBS school without sitting out a year, if that school offers a graduate program that Clemson does not have. The 6'2” 270 pound Leland, North Carolina product played in 206 snaps in 2017, compiling nineteen tackles, and was named Co-Defensive Player of the Game in Clemson's 24-10 victory over Georgia Tech.
Clemson Football's twitter account tweeted out the following on the announcement.
"Clemson has developed me not only as a great football player but as an educated young man."— Clemson Football (@ClemsonFB) January 29, 2018
Leaving @ClemsonUniv with a National Championship and a college degree, we wish the best for Jabril Robinson. Thank you, 5️⃣0️⃣!

With the return of Christian Wilkins, the competition at the two DT slots got even more crowded, and Robinson's snaps may have been limited. This should give him not just an opportunity to shine at another school, but to potentially also earn a graduate degree and expand his horizon. We at STS wish Jabril the best, and look forward to watching him in the 2018 season.
