A graduate of Western Hills High School in Frankfort (KY), Robinson originally committed to the Wildcats as a four-star top-100 prospect in 2018. His lead recruiter was Vince Marrow.
Just weeks later, he decommitted from UK and pledged to Scott Frost in Nebraska, where he enrolled in January of 2019.

Playing as a wide receiver and running back, Robinson found an immediate roll in the Nebraska offense. In 2019, he played in 10 games with 40 catches for 453 yards and two touchdowns while adding 340 rushing yards and three scores on the ground.
Robinson was an honorable mention All-Big Ten selection, a two-time Big Ten Freshman of the Week honoree, and a Second-Team freshman All-American. He also finished as one of four finalists for the Hornung Award, which was won by Kentucky’s Lynn Bowden Jr.
In a shortened 2020 season, Robinson was even better. In just eight games, he made 51 catches for 461 yards and a touchdown while rushing for 240 yards and a score.
Now in the portal, Kentucky is expected to be a major suitor with the former commit, as their offense looks to be more explosive in 2021 under new offensive coordinator Liam Coen.
