Missouri quarterback Shawn Robinson, formerly a quarterback for TCU, filed a waiver for immediate eligibility. Robinson is alleging mistreatment during his time at TCU, and the NCAA has not made a decision yet on the matter, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.
The NCAA waiver is confidential, and the specifics of Robinson’s claims are still unknown.
Robinson previously injured his shoulder while playing at a TCU-Iowa game in September. He started again Oct. 11 against Texas Tech and Oct. 20 in a game against Oklahoma. Ultimately, he struggled to play through the injury in each game and eventually was replaced by backup Mike Collins. TCU argues that the coaches didn’t force Robinson to play through any injury.
“He’s tried to play and I think it’s hurt his confidence and it’s hurt his escapability and a lot of other things for him to make some plays, how we run the read option and everything,” TCU coach Gary Patterson said in an interview with the Star-Telegram.
TCU is not expected to contest the NCAA’s decision if it grants immediate eligibility to Robinson. Robinson’s allegations comes after a lawsuit filed by Kolby Listenbee, who also alleged mistreatment by the university and Patterson.
Robinson informed TCU of his decision to transfer to Missouri in December. He’s projected to play as the starting quarterback in the 2020 season.
