James Madison men’s soccer signs Rodrigo Robles on transfer from West Virginia
“Rodrigo comes to us after a solid freshmen season at West Virginia,” said Zazenski. “He is a possession-oriented midfield/forward who can score and assist in big moments. He has maintained a strong academic profile and has four seasons of eligibility remaining. We are pleased to have him represent JMU as a student-athlete and are excited to see what he can bring to the table for our group.”
Robles appeared in 21 games and started 16 of them in 2019 for the Mountaineers. The Burgos, Spain native lead the team in goals (nine) and points (21), taking 27 shots during the season with 16 on goal.
Robles lead the Mid-American Conference in goals among freshmen, and ranked fifth nationally in the same category. Among all players in the MAC, he tied for the lead in goals and finished fourth in points.
The former Mountaineer will be immediately eligible to participate in the 2020-21 season for JMU. He will look to help aid the Dukes in their quest for their third Colonial Athletic Association title in a row when they open the season on Friday, Feb. 19 at Georgetown.
