Florida provides official update on freshman WR James Robinson
GAINESVILLE, Fla. — Florida freshman wide receiver James Robinson has still not been cleared to play or practice while he awaits results on his unspecified heart condition.
“His genetic testing results won’t be available until late November at the earliest,” a University Athletic Association spokesman said Wednesday.
To clarify, that doesn’t mean he will be cleared as soon as the test results come back, meaning Robinson likely will not play this season.
McElwain previously announced on Sept. 6 that Robinson took an echocardiogram and that Robinson “had something show up” on the test.
McElwain said earlier this month that Robinson visited a heart specialist in Philadelphia but did not have the full scope of the results at that time. He did say, though, that Robinson was in good spirits.
Robinson is a 6-foot-4, 205-pound receiver from Lakeland. He was a 4-star recruit and the 14th ranked receiver in the Class of 2017 according to the 247Sports Composite.
