  Former Cincinnati offensive lineman Jakari Robinson has committed to Memphis football. Robinson entered the transfer portal on March 1 after starting 24 games at center the past three seasons.

He started all 14 games in 2019 as Cincinnati reached the AAC Championship game where the Bearcats lost to Memphis. He initially committed to Arkansas State but de-committed on Tuesday. His decommitment came the same day after the AAC eliminated its intraconference transfer policy forcing athletes to sit out a year if they transferred between member schools He'll be a graduate transfer and has two years of eligibility remaining. The NCAA is expected to soon approve a one-time transfer allowing players to be immediately eligible after leaving a program. - Memphis Commercial Appeal

  As University of Cincinnati men's basketball coach John Brannen continues to sort through who's left in his locker room, Bearcats football coach Luke Fickell also has been forced to take inventory of his roster this offseason. Like Brannen, who had six of his players enter the transfer portal last week, Fickell has had his issues of players transferring, as center Jakari Robinson earlier this month became the latest UC football player to enter the portal. Robinson, who started 24 games during his Cincinnati career, entered the portal as a graduate transfer, joining backup quarterback Ben Bryant, wide receiver Jayshon Jackson and others. "I think it's (the diminished amount of in-person contact due to the global pandemic) been tough on us as coaches and I think it's been a lot harder on these 18- to 22-year-olds," Fickell said on Monday. "I think that piles onto the issues that the guys leaving in the basketball program or even that are leaving in the football program. It's made it a lot more difficult." - Cincinnati Enquirer

  The NCAA transfer portal now contains two former University of Tennessee specialists. After senior kicker Brent Cimaglia revealed Friday that he would use his final year of eligibility elsewhere, redshirt junior punter Joe Doyle elected Saturday to leave the Volunteers as well. Doyle, a 6-foot, 204-pounder from Knoxville, was a USA Today Freshman All-America selection in 2018 but was beaten out by Paxton Brooks midway through the 2019 season and did not attempt any punts this past season. The Athletic was the first to report Doyle's departure. Doyle averaged 41.1 yards in 2018, when his 65 punts led the Southeastern Conference. Only eight of his punts were returned for a total of just 15 yards. In Tennessee's 38-12 loss at Georgia that season, Doyle had a career-long 71-yarder. - Chattanooga Times Free Press

  Austin Myers won't return to TCU football next season after all.

Myers is a versatile lineman who played tackle and guard in his time at TCU. He opened last season as the Frogs' starting left tackle, playing the first three games there. He then started two games at right guard before missing the final four games. - Fort Worth Star
