Former Penn State running back Andre Robinson has transferred to Delaware after leaving the Nittany Lions' program following the 2017 season.

Robinson's move to Delaware was first reported by former Harrisburg area reporter Josh Reed, now sports director at WIVB TV in Buffalo. It was later confirmed by PennLive.

Robinson left Penn State in December prior to the Nittany Lions’ Fiesta Bowl victory over Washington. The Mechanicsburg, Pa., native is eligible to play for the FCS Blue Hens this season.

Penn State’s former No. 6 redshirted as a freshman in 2015 and played a reserve role behind Saquon Barkley for most of his Nittany Lion career. He departed Penn State with 196 career rushing yards and seven total touchdowns in two seasons.

His more productive season came during Penn State’s Big Ten championship run in 2016, as he rushed for 141 yards and scored five touchdowns on the ground in 12 appearances.

Last season, Robinson only appeared in five games, scoring one touchdown and gaining 55 yards as Miles Sanders leapfrogged him for the backup spot behind Barkley.
