Scouting Report: Robinson had a tremendous offensive season showcasing a high skill level as a post scorer and shooter. Limited explosion and rim protection are the red flags for the 7-footer.

The 21-year-old averaged 19.4 points, 8.4 rebounds and 1.2 blocks in 36 games with the Bulldogs this past season. He continued to expand his offensive repertoire as well, making 37 three-pointers and shooting 35.2 percent from beyond the arc.

In January, Bleacher Report's Kerry Miller highlighted the 7-footer as one of the 2022 draft prospects who was getting overlooked a bit.

"He has a dream combination of size, length, range and versatility, but no one seems to have noticed," Miller wrote.

While Robinson is unlikely to be a major contributor at the next level, he possesses a lot of the tools necessary to become a reliable backup big for a long time.
