Georgia Tech Football: DE Kevin Robbins Jr. No Longer on Team

The rising redshirt freshman was expected to compete for the starting job at SDE during spring camp.

Reports surfaced Monday that rising redshirt freshman DE Kevin Robbins Jr. would no longer be a part of the Georgia Tech football team. It was reported by Eric Thompson of GTSwarm.com. When asked via Twitter, insider Kelly Quinlan revealed that the decision was not one based on football, but rather about his desired major.

Robbins is the the latest this offseason to leave the team prematurely, following QB Vad Lee's transfer to James Madison, DE Anthony Williams' dismissal, and DT Justin Akins' decision to transfer. Alongside Akins, Robbins becomes the second from the 2013 signing class (already small with only 14 signees) to depart the team early. The three-star recruit is the son of a prominent Michigan State and former NFL player (Kevin Robbins Sr, if you couldn't guess) and signed with Georgia Tech over the Spartans, North Carolina, a slew of other BCS-level schools.

Robbins was expected to provide stiff competition to Tyler Stargel with a good chance to win the starting SDE role in spring camp. Following his departure, the job is almost certainly Stargel's to lose, though the competition now is likely to be with Robbins' high school teammate Darius Commissiong.

Disappointed to see Robbins leave? How much will it affect the team moving forward?
