After deciding to leave the University of Alabama this summer, cornerback Aaron Robinson returned home and has committed to the Knights via University of Central Florida 

News of Robinson’s transfer school was reported by Juan Toribio of 247Sports.

Before exiting Tuscaloosa, Robinson was a three-star recruit from Deerfield Beach (Fla.) High School.  He enrolled in the Crimson Tide’s 2017 signing class, following an output of 41 tackles and four interceptions as a senior in 2016.

The 6-foot-1, 181-pounder was listed at No. 294 on the ESPN 300 site, while being a rotational player in the secondary and special teams option for the Tide. With the Knights graduating Shaquill Griffin, D.J. Killings, Drico Johnson and T.J. Mutcherson, the program gets a defender in Robinson that it needs.

He will sit out a year due to the NCAA transfer rule, but in 2018 he should be prepared to contribute. Robinson, who totaled five tackles in 2016, joins former Alabama safety Shawn Burgess-Becker — who left the Tide to pursue a spot at UCF after the 2015 season.
