College careerEdit

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. Boston College assistant coach Scott Spinelli, who is known for finding diamonds in the rough, was the only representative of a Power-5 school to offer Robinson. As a freshman, Robinson averaged 11.7 points, 4 rebounds and 3 assists per game for the 2015-16 season. As a sophomore, he averaged 18.7 points, 4 rebounds, 3.4 assists per game. During his junior year, he averaged 20.7 points, 3.6 rebounds and 3.3 assists per game and was named All ACC First Team with 14 ACC Player of the Year votes.[2] Additionally, he was an Associated Press honorable mention All-American. He scored a career-high 46 points in a loss at Notre Dame on February 6. After the season, he declared for the 2018 NBA draft but did not hire an agent to preserve his collegiate eligibility.[3] On April 28, 2018 he hired an agent with CAA sports thus ending his eligibility.[4] Robinson became the first ever lottery draft pick out of Boston College.
