ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Michigan safety Marvin Robinson will be in court on Wednesday for a preliminary hearing after being charged with a single count of second-degree home invasion.

"We are aware of the report," Michigan coach Brady Hoke said in a statement Monday. "We will let the legal process run its course, and we will not have any further comment until that time."

Robinson, 20, has played in five games for Michigan (No. 18 BCS, No. 20 AP) this season and made nine tackles, starting one, against Notre Dame, in which he made a career-high seven tackles.

He has not traveled with the Wolverines to a road game this season. Hoke has said Robinson has been injured over the past month, but the coach never gave a description of what was wrong with the Winter Haven, Fla., native.

Robinson's hearing is slated for 1 p.m. Wednesday.
