Former Auburn running back Jovon Robinson has admitted to two incidents that led to him being dismissed by the team, 247Sports’ Ryan Black reported.
One incident involved Robinson forcing a woman to leave his dorm by taking her by the wrist, the source said.
“He told me, ‘I had a girl in my room. I tried to get her out of my room. I grabbed her by her wrist and told her to get out,’” the source told 247Sports.
The incident was reported to the school’s Division of Student Affairs, which had no comment.
The other incident involved teammate Marshall Taylor, as he and Robinson went to a party where Taylor was involved in a physical altercation. Robinson denied involvement in the scuffle, 247Sports reported.
“The only thing Jovon said is that Taylor got there and got ‘doped up,’” the 247Sports source said, “and that everything was blamed on him.”
Robinson’s refusal to be accountable for his actions was a familiar refrain for 247Sports’ source.
‘They’re blaming everything on me. Everybody is coming at me,’” the source said. “It was just the usual, ‘pitiful, pitiful Jovon. Everything is put on me.’”
According to AL.com’s James Crepea, Taylor did not wish to return to the team if Robinson was going to continue to be part of it. The Auburn defensive back missed the Tigers’ first two practices.
