Former college football player charged with making “terroristic threats” against his former program

Former Arizona State cornerback Edward “Robbie” Robinson was arrested on the ASU campus Friday after making violent threats against members of the Sun Devils athletics community, according to a report by Phoenix’s 3TV on Saturday.

The campus authorities claim Robinson, 20, made threats around noon on Friday, which set off a campuswide alert.

The cornerback, who hasn’t been enrolled at the university in more than a year, was arrested in connection to the threat around 8 p.m. on Friday and charged with “making terrorist threats, disruption of an educational institution and possession of marijuana,” according to the report.

Robinson’s bond is set at $50,000.

The 5-foot-8, 172-pound corner was a three-star prospect who received playing time early in his true freshman season at the nickel cornerback and boundary corner positions in 2016.

However, he saw a decrease in appearances as the season progressed, while Arizona State finished with the worst pass defense in college football for the second straight season.

Robinson officially left the Sun Devils’ football program last spring, according to multiple reports.
