Jerald Robinson leaves Michigan football team

Rick Osentoski-US PRESSWIRE

On Friday, Michigan wide receiver Jerald Robinson decided to leave the program, becoming the third player to quit the team since the end of the regular season. Robinson finished the 2012 year with just five catches for 69 yards in 2012.

It's been a busy couple weeks in Ann Arbor, where on Friday Jerald Robinson became the third player to leave the Michigan football program since the end of the regular season.

The news was confirmed by head coach Brady Hoke via MLive.com.

In the big picture, Robinson's departure shouldn't hurt the Michigan program too much. The sophomore from Canton, OH finished the regular season with just five catches for 69 yards and zero touchdowns, in a passing offense which ranked just 98th in the country. Robinson also had to deal with legal issues during the season, after he damaged a gate in a parking structure. Robinson eventually pleaded guilty to malicious destruction of public property and was sentenced to six months probation for the incident.

But while Robinson's on the field impact was minimal, his decision to leave the program should concern Michigan fans in one way: He is the third player to quit the team since the regular season ended on November 24. Fullback Stephen Hopkins and defensive lineman Nathan Brink have also left the program since then.

Michigan will next take the field on New Year's Day when they play South Carolina in the Outback Bowl.
