A familiar face showed up for Air Force’s football practice on Monday evening, as Jalen Robinette mingled with his former teammates.

Robinette even provided a little one-on-one tutelage for sophomore receiver Geraud Sanders, his most obvious heir apparent at least where physical attributes are concerned.

The Falcon’s all-time leader in receiving yards exchanged pleasantries with The Gazette, but offered no further comment on his current situation.

Robinette has been the center of several stunning turns of events over the past four months.

He was expected to be taken in the NFL Draft after being invited to a pair of senior all-star games and the NFL Combine, but on the day the draft began he was informed that the Department of Defense would no longer allow service academy graduates to shift to reserves before serving for two years. Then, weeks later, Robinette did not graduate with his class. His agent later released a statement, saying his graduation was placed on hold while “awaiting a determination on a non-criminal disciplinary proceeding.”

And that’s where things remain. Robinette has stayed at the academy through the summer, where The Gazette has been told a determination on his case will be made by the commandant and superintendent.
