Former Dayton Flyers forward Jalen Robinson apologizes to UD

Robinson was dismised from team in December 2014

Former Dayton Flyers forward Jalen Robinson issued a public apology to the University of Dayton last month in a post to Instagram.

Robinson and fellow forward Devon Scott — both graduates of Northland High School in Columbus — were dismissed from the university as juniors in December 2014 and later plead guilty and served jail time for their roles in on-campus burglaries.

Robinson finished his college basketball career last season at Dalton State Community College in Georgia and is now playing professional basketball in Croatia.

“Never took the chance to public apologize to UD,” Robinson wrote. “Thank you for the many experiences and memories you guys gave me. My apologies for my behavior off the court. A regret I have for sure! I enjoyed my time there and although it did not end the way I wanted it to I always consider myself a #Flyer. My own dumb decisions and opportunities I took for granted led me astray. UD is excellent and I recommend it for any student athlete! From the community to the student/campus life, UD was amazing. God has a plan and the path I’m on now is guided by him through prayer and action! Thank you and once again my apologies for the stupidity I displayed.”
