Robinson has natural athletic abilities that make him an impactful defender. Robinson is a versatile talent that played various positions across Ole Miss’ multiple fronts.”
Robinson has a unique story lettering in football, track, and basketball at Guelph Collegiate Vocational Institute in Ontario, Canada. He then signed with the University of Guelph, was named to the All-Ontario Rookie Team in 2018, and finally earned Second-Team All-Ontario honors in 2019 before signing with Ole Miss in 2020.
