Arizona transfer safety Robertson commits to Griz


MISSOULA — The Griz have fortified one of their thinnest positions with a Pac 12 transfer. Gavin Robertson is coming to Montana.

Montana’s safeties’ group has become depleted through graduation and a change in head coach over the last two seasons. Two years ago, the group lost former Arizona transfer Yamen Sanders to graduation. In 2017, Montana’s roster featured three more senior safeties — Justin Strong, Mick Delaney and Korey Alexander — who all exhausted their eligibility following Montana’s 7-4 campaign.

With the non-renewal of Bob Stitt’s contract after three seasons at the helm, more attrition proceeded across the roster, including with prized former 3-star recruit Isiahia Banks leaving the UM program.
