He won't be able to take the field anymore.

Former 4-star wide receiver recruit James Robinson committed to play for the Florida Gators.

Robinson, a 6-foot-4, 205-pound wideout was expected to emerge as a serious redzone threat for the Gators during his freshman season, but ran into health complications.

An echocardiogram picked up an unknown heart condition, and it wasn't known if Robinson would return to the field or not.

On Friday afternoon he addressed the situation.

It's terrible news for someone who was expected to make an immediate impact for his team.

Robinson committed to the Gators as the No. 14 wide receiver recruit in the 2017 class and the No. 21 recruit from the state of Florida.
