Robinson HighlightsClick Here to view this Link.
RANK: No. 234
SCHOOLS: Committed to Kansas State
WHY HE'S IN THE 250: A lot of the spotlight is deservedly shone on Blake Bell in Wichita, but Robinson has put up big numbers as both a junior and a senior. It's those numbers and improved play that lands him a spot on the Rivals250. - J.C.
