A woman has recanted a domestic violence claim against formerrunning back Jovon Robinson that from the team, according to .
The accuser initially sent an email to head coach Gus Malzahn, saying Robinson shoved her out of his dorm and she smashed her head into a door, and skinned her knees on the hallway carpet.
She later sent Malzahn another email on the evening of the day Robinson was dismissed, claiming she made the story up.
“I’m not sure if your decision today had anything to do with my situation a few weeks ago, but I just wanted you to know that I made up the entire thing simply because I was upset with Jovon at the time,” the accuser wrote to Malzahn. “I haven’t had any contact with him in the past few weeks but I do not think my lie should have costed him his spot on the team. Please consider changing your mind because I would really hate to see a person with so much potential lose his opportunity because of my silly fib. Jovon didn’t do anything to me that night but ask me to leave his room and I was upset about that.”
The accuser also reiterated recently that she made up the story to AL.com.
"If it was anything like that, I wouldn't have just went to the school," she said. "Nothing like that happened."
Robinson was slated to be the starter this season after running for 639 yards and three touchdowns as a freshman.
