Report: Former Texas A&M DE signee Alton Robinson signs to play for Syracuse

Alton Robinson’s career at Texas A&M was over before it even got started. After choosing the Aggies over programs like Alabama and Michigan, Robinson was charged with robbery, and ultimately not allowed to play for Texas A&M. However, those charges have since been dropped, and Robinson has found a new home: the Syracuse Orange, according to Ralph Russo of the Associated Press:

Robinson spent last year at Northeastern Oklahoma A&M, a community college, and initially committed to play for New Mexico State (coincidentally, also the Aggies) last month. However, when Syracuse offered another opportunity to play in a power conference, Robinson chose to head to upstate New York.

Coming out of high school, the 6-foot-2, 235 pound Robinson was a highly-ranked three-star prospect. Most experts predicted he would sign with Baylor before surprising almost everyone with his commitment to the Aggies.
