Danielle Robinson elected to transfer to Michigan from Maryland to continue to play at the Division I level.
With the Maryland Terrapins varsity team being cut this past year there was bound to be players who were to transfer to continue playing at the Division I level. One such player is attacker Danielle Robinson, who elected to transfer to play for the Michigan Wolverines in early December.
The rich keep getting richer, and Wolverines head coach Matt Anderson mentions how grateful they are to get a high quality player like Robinson:
"We're very fortunate to get Danielle," said Anderson, "but obviously, it came under unfortunate circumstances with Maryland dropping its program. Danielle had a very strong season last year as a freshman. She is an offensive-oriented, tall and strong right-handed driver. She is going to join us in January and really help us immediately to win games. She already has a year under her belt and is a seasoned veteran playing within the CWPA. We are excited to have her in our program."
In her lone year at Maryland she was a key player for Maryland she appeared in 26 games, had 46 total points, scored 29 goals and 27 steals. Robinson hails from Canada and was one of the 25 players named to the 2011 Canadian junior national team, and she was invited to play in the Canadian Select League for that same year.
She is eligible to play for Michigan this year, and should be able to be a key contributor right away.
