After being buried in fourth on the Georgia Bulldogs depth chart after spring practices, redshirt Freshman quarterback Nick Robinson announced his intention to transfer somewhere else where he would have a chance of playing during his college career.
On Friday afternoon, the gunslinger tweeted that he had figured out what his destination would be:

Ultimately, Robinson will end up at the University of Pennsylvania, but, since that commitment won’t begin until 2017, he will play at Saddleback College in Mission Viejo, California.
Because Saddleback is a community college, they are not held to the same transfer procedures that the University of Pennsylvania is subject to. The next year will see a lot of moving for the quarterback, as he’ll travel from Georgia to California and then back east to Philadelphia.
Out of high school, Robinson was a three-star recruit, but did not receive a scholarship offer. He would walk-on to the Georgia football team. After redshirting his freshman year, he threw for 49 yards and one touchdown in Georgia’s spring game.
Robinson’s eventual destination–the University of Pennsylvania–finished third in the Ivy League last season, going 7-3 overall and 6-1 in the conference. Dartmouth and Harvard finished ahead of the Quakers with better out of conference records.
For next year, Robinson will return to his home state of California. He played high school football at JSerra Catholic High School and grew up in Rancho Santa Margarita, so to attend Saddlebrook College. Robinson will be moving close to home before returning to the eastern half of the country for the 2017 season.
