Pu'u-Robinson explains why he's leaving WSU
Washington State has been my home for the past three years and my experience in Pullman has been remarkable. I have developed several strong relationships with my teammates, fellow classmates, coaches and other people affiliated with WSU. I want to thank the many people who have shown their support toward me and my family during this difficult process and my playing career. The Cougar tradition and spirit is very special and one that I will always cherish. Go Cougs.
I made the difficult decision leaving WSU for personal, family reasons. I decided that being back home in Hawaii with my family is what was most important during this time. This was NEVER a football related decision and I am going home with the intent to help my family.
I was told directly by the WSU coaches (this spring) that I was playing really well and was projected to be on the field a lot this next season. The decision was made in Mid-April to transfer and have been waiting for my release since then. As of yesterday I was officially granted my release. Regardless of any rumors you might have heard, I was never cut by WSU.
This has been an emotional and long process but is finally over. It will be hard to leave such a great place like WSU. I am going to miss my teammates and wish them the best of luck next year. It is difficult to not finish my career as a COUG but I will always be one at heart.
I had a great experience playing here at WSU. I would like to thank all of my teammates, coaches and athletic staff members for a bunch of great memories. I hope to continue my football career back home with Hawaii.
