WR James Robinson’s career is over due to heart condition

Florida freshman wide receiver James Robinson has seen his football career end before it even began.

Robinson was diagnosed with a heart condition in September, but the University announced on Friday that he could not be medically cleared to play football.

Robinson was the #14 ranked wide receiver in the country, and was Florida’s top ranked offensive signee in the 2017 recruiting cycle.

Robinson tweeted his own frustration upon learning of his football fate:

Robinson was cited for marijuana possession in August and was subsequently suspended for the season opener against Michigan. It was only days later when then head coach Jim McElwain announced the heart condition.
