“With almost an all-NBA staff, it showed me how different they were from other colleges,” Robinson told On3 in an interview after committing to Louisville. “From the first conversation with coach Kenny Payne, it was great.

“He is very honest and wants you to get to the next level so he’ll push you and help you to get there as much as he can. I believe in Coach Payne, and I don’t believe I would find another coaching staff like Louisville. So that’s ultimately why I chose them.”

Robinson displayed decent outings in the 2022 Nike EYBL and the NBPA Top 100 Camp. During his junior year at Immaculate Conception, the guard averaged 21 points per game.

Additionally, the high school standout scored 50 points in the Lions’ 75-67 win over Dwight-Englewood in the first round of the Jingle Bells Jubilee Tournament in Paterson last December.

“We started slow and we’re down like 13-0 and 20-11 after the first quarter,” Robinson told Cardinal Authority after the win. “After starting off slow, I started to get into a rhythm and my teammates just kept feeding me.

“I just felt like I couldn’t miss. Everything that I put up felt good to me. I wasn’t really paying any attention to how many points I had. I was just trying to get the win because that was a big game. That game was crazy.”
