Former South Carolina DB Jammie Robinson announces transfer destination
Since he was a freshman in 2019, Jammie Robinson has contributed in the defensive secondary for South Carolina. The now former Gamecock appeared in 12 games two seasons ago, with three starts. In 2020, he played in all 10 games and made an interception, and he was the team’s second-leading tackler with 74.
But nearly three weeks ago, he entered the transfer portal after a brief career with the Gamecocks, who he chose out of high school coming out of Lee County in Georgia over the likes of Alabama, Auburn, Kentucky and Tennessee, among others.
At South Carolina, he quickly found playing time and contributed. In 2019, he was named to the SEC Coaches’ All-Freshman team and was a second-team Freshman All-American according to Pro Football Focus in a season when he finished third on the squad in tackles with 62.
Now Robinson has announced that he will transfer to Florida State, and play on a defense with another former Gamecock, DL Keir Thomas, who also announced similar plans in recent days. Robinson on social media thanked “the man above,” his coaches, fans and family for helping him in college and through this process.
“Ain’t to much else I Need to say,” he tweeted, “Let’s Get to Work.”
