After redshirt sophomore quarterback Chris Robison was suspended due to sexual battery accusations he’ll be officially reinstated for football activities, according to FAU athletics spokesperson Katrina McCormack.


The former Oklahoma transfer didn’t attend FAU’s spring practices and other events. FAU PD investigated Robison’s situation after a student alleged he sexually battered her. The student eventually recanted her allegations and decided not to press charges, according to police records.


This isn’t the first time Robsion has been suspended. In the beginning of FAU’s 2018 camp, he was suspended after missing a tutoring session. At the University of Oklahoma, he was arrested on a public intoxication charge in April 2017. He was then kicked off the team that summer prior to transferring to FAU in August.


“Chris Robison is currently able to participate in football-related team activities,” Assistant AD/Communications at FAU Katrina McCormack said.


The 20-year-old’s reinstatement provides more decisions for head coach Lane Kiffin when it comes to the team’s clustered quarterback room. As of right now, Indiana transfer Nick Tronti and former brief starter for Kent State Justin Agner are competing while redshirt freshman Cordel Littlejohn and incoming freshman Javion Posey enter the fray.


Another quarterback that’s up in the air is former FSU signal-caller Deondre Francois who said he intended to walk-on for FAU, but no news since has come out on that front.


Robison started 11 of FAU’s 12 games last season and he recorded 12 touchdowns and 12 interceptions to go along with 2,540 passing yards.
