Ex-Rutgers DB announces transfer to USF
Former Rutgers defensive back T.J. Robinson will be heading a little closer to home to finish his college football career.
Earlier this week, Robinson announced on Twitter that he will be transferring to USF. He is a native of Riverview, Florida and was a three-star member of Rutgers’ 2019 recruiting class. He transferred after one season with the Scarlet Knights.

Robinson appeared in four games for Rutgers last season, registering five tackles. Because he did not compete in more than four contests, Robinson is able to designate the 2019 season as his redshirt year.
Due to NCAA transfer regulations, Robinson will be forced to sit out the 2020 season, unless he receives a hardship waiver. Still, he will have three years of eligibility to use at USF.
As a high school player, Robinson totaled 103 tackles and seven interceptions as a defensive back and had 36 catches and four touchdowns as a receiver.
