Missouri transfer QB Shawn Robinson pushing for immediate eligibility
Quarterback Shawn Robinson is pushing for immediate eligibility at Missouri.
Robinson transferred to Missouri in December after two seasons at TCU. The Kansas City Star’s Drew Davison and Alex Schiffer reported on Tuesday that Robinson has filed for a waiver to make him available to play immediately. Robinson is citing mistreatment by TCU, a claim the Horned Frogs are disputing. The nature of the alleged mistreatment has not been revealed.
Robinson dealt with injuries last season and played in seven games. He completed 60.8 percent of his passes for 1,334 yards, 9 touchdowns and 8 interceptions. He also rushed for 230 yards and 3 touchdowns.
If Robinson is granted eligibility, he would be able to compete with expected starter Kelly Bryant, a graduate transfer from Clemson. Robinson would be able to play in four games while still taking a redshirt year if he were cleared for this season.
Missouri is coming off an 8-5 season in head coach Barry Odom’s third year. They’re looking to build upon the success Drew Lock had at quarterback last season.
