FRESNO, Calif. - Fresno State head coach Tim DeRuyter announced Friday two transfers - LeKendrick Williams from Texas A&M and Tyrell Robinson from Oregon - have enrolled in school and will join the Bulldog football program.
Williams, a 5-8, 170-pound wide receiver, graduated from Texas A&M and will be eligible to play immediately for the Bulldogs. He has one season of eligibility remaining to complete at Fresno State.
Robinson, a 6-4, 201-pound linebacker originally from San Diego, Calif., played last year as a true freshman at Oregon. He will have to sit out the 2014 season in accordance with NCAA transfer regulations and will have three seasons of eligibility remaining after this year.
The former four-star prep standout, Robinson played in nine games last year for the Ducks and finished his first collegiate season with 12 tackles. As a senior in high school, he recorded 111 tackles to go with 12.5 sacks playing under former Bulldog star David Dunn at Lincoln High School. He played in the 2013 Semper Fidelis All-American game.
Williams, originally from Sharpstown, Texas, appeared in 19 games for the Aggies over the 2011-13 seasons. He had seven career receptions for 170 yards and scored two touchdowns. His longest reception went for 80 yards and a score in a win over Sam Houston State in 2012.
Fresno State players reported for fall camp on Friday. The Bulldogs will hold their first practice of the 2014 season on Saturday morning and open the season up on Aug. 30 when they play at USC.
