OU Dismisses Freshman QB Chris Robison From Team for Violation of Team Rules



The University of Oklahoma has dismissed freshman quarterback Chris Robison for a violation of team rules, new head coach Lincoln Riley announced on Wednesday night.

Robison was a four-star prospect in OU’s top-10 2017 recruiting class and arrived on the Norman campus in January as an early enrollee. He was offered a scholarship by Oklahoma State during the recruiting process along with many other Division I programs but ultimately chose OU and stuck with his early commitment.

Details have yet to be released on Robison’s dismissal, but it is worth noting that Robison was arrested for public intoxication back in April.

Although Robison’s dismissal means nothing for the short term — Baker Mayfield is obviously entrenched as the starter, and both Kyler Murray and Austin Kendall have plenty of talent to be viable backups — it could make an impact in the long-term. Robison would have competed for a chance to replace Mayfield in 2018 given his pedigree and talent, but now the Sooners depth chart has suddenly thinned out significantly.
