Robinson was not ranked as a high school recruit and had trouble receiving offers from Power-5 programs coming out of Needham B. Broughton High School in Raleigh North Carolina.

After the season, he declared for the 2018 NBA draft but did not hire an agent to preserve his collegiate eligibility. On April 28, 2018 he hired an agent with CAA sports thus ending his eligibility.
