Robinson's charges dropped
Arkansas got good news out of Florida Thursday morning as 2014 signee JoJo Robinson was cleared of federal robbery charges stemming from an incident that occurred in Miami on April 24.
Robinson, 5-10, 185, 4.4, is considered one of Arkansas top additions in the signing class of 2014 and will be expected to contribute at wide receiver and on special teams as a true freshman this fall.
His father, Joseph Robinson, said Thursday's news was expected and that his family is glad to put it behind them.
"It was a lesson learned," the father said. "Here's the thing with JoJo, he really thinks that no one will put him in a bad situation. That's just how he thinks, so this was a lesson learned for him that, just that quick, somebody can put you in a mess.
"But we're moving on now. We'll be up there between June 26-29 and we're coming in running."
JoJo Robinson attended Arkansas' spring game just days after his arrest, and head coach Bret Bielema said in his postgame press conference that he anticipated Robinson's name to be cleared in the situation.
Joseph Robinson said he plans on reaching out to Bielema today.
"I haven't talked to Coach Bielema yet, but I'm fixing to give him a call and we'll talk it up," he said. "I know he's probably pretty happy about this."
JoJo Robinson was a three-star prospect coming out of Miami Northwestern. He was a long-time Florida State commit and also received offers from Auburn, USC, LSU, Miami and TCU before signing with the Razorbacks in February.
