Robinson, Barbir leaving PSU

University Park, Centre County, Pa. - A pair of Nittany Lions have been granted their release from Penn State and will not return for the 2018 season.

Running back Andre Robinson and kicker Alex Barbir will be leaving the Lions to find other opportunities.

Robinson was expected to be in competition for the starting running back role next season, if Saquon Barkley declares for the NFL draft.  The Harrisburg native finishes his PSU career with six touchdowns but saw limited playing time in 2017.

Barbir saw time handling kick-off duties late in games against Akron and Georgia State.  The Georgia native was expected to compete for kicking duties in 2018, as senior Tyler Davis will graduate.
