Florida Gators heading receiver Demarcus Robinson was dangling for Saturday’s 27-2 detriment to No. 13 Florida State, and now a team’s seniors will confirm either he can lapse for this week’s SEC championship game.
“I’m going to revisit with a seniors. They’ll establish that instruction we’ll go,” manager Jim McElwain said, according to a Gainesville Sun.
Florida meets Alabama for a SEC pretension in Atlanta on Saturday.
Saturday’s diversion noted a fourth time Robinson has been dangling while with a Gators. He was dangling twice as a beginner and for a 2014 deteriorate opener opposite Idaho, a diversion that was canceled since of thunderstorms. Robinson has also been benched or demoted twice this season.
Robinson, a local of Fort Valley, Georgia, leads a 12th-ranked Gators (10-1, 7-1 SEC) with 47 catches and is second on a group with 505 receiving yards. He has dual touchdowns this season. For his career, Robinson has 105 catches for 1,338 yards and 9 touchdowns.
Asked because a seniors would confirm Robinson’s fate, McElwain said: “Look, he done a choice, OK. He done a choice,” McElwain said. “You know what, a family needs to make this decision, and those guys are a leaders of a family.”
