Demeioun Robinson, a 6’4, 250 pound Edge who graduated from Quince Orchard High School, announced on March 28th that he would be entering the transfer portal. Earlier this week he announced that he will be transferring to Penn State University, via social media.
Robinson, who was a highly sought after recruit coming out of high school, has three seasons of eligibility remaining after playing in 13 games for the Terrapins. He had 13 tackles, 2 sacks, and 2.5 tackles for a loss as a true freshman.
“It didn’t come as a surprise,” Terps head coach Mike Locksley said of the decision. “You know, as I’ve said before, we have to recruit our current roster. You have to recruit sophomores, juniors, and seniors. We’re recruiting all the time. And we hate to see players leave our program, but as I’ve said before, this is the landscape of college football. The Transfer Portal giveth and taketh away. I’m sure we’ll enjoy the fruits of the Transfer Portal during my time here.”
Robinson initially earned offers from Alabama, Georgia, LSU, Michigan, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Texas A&M, and more, but decided to go with the hometown University of Maryland out of high school.
He is eligible to play for Penn State this upcoming season and could still redshirt a year if needed, though he’s expected to compete for a starting position with the Nittany Lions.
