Two LBs contact Warriors

July 8th, 2014

Two linebackers who are seeking to transfer — Oregon's Tyrell Robinson and Nebraska's Jared Afalava — have contacted the Warriors.


Robinson, who is 6-4 and 220 pounds, was a 4-star recruit in 2012. He played nine games as a true freshman for the Ducks in 2013. Last month, Robinson requested — and received — a release from his football scholarship. His twin brother — Tyree Robinson, a defensive back who redshirted in 2013 — will remain at Oregon.


Afalava, who is 6-3 and 230 pounds, left Nebraska this past spring.

As a second-year freshman in 2013, Afalava played in four games, starting two.

He led Bingham High to two Utah 5-A state championships.

His father, Kesi Afalava, is a former UH defensive tackle.
