INDIANAPOLIS (IN) - Despite moving out of the midwest-centered Horizon league to the Atlantic 10 and now the Big East, Butler continues to recruit Chicago, which is a major hub for talented high school athletes.
One of those players Butler has expressed interest in is Chicago (IL) Kenwood small forward Nick Robinson.
Robinson has seen his recruitment begin this summer while playing for Meanstreets AAU and hopes to have it blossom during his high school season.
The 6-foot 5 forward has started to hear from Butler, Creighton, and Notre Dame, but would like to hear from a few more schools.
"I would want to hear from some of the other top schools like Michigan and Kentucky," Robinson explained, "but I know I have to continue to work hard to hear from them."
A couple of weeks ago, Butler hosted a few recruits including Robinson and his friend, shooting guard Zion Morgan from Chicago (IL) King, on an unofficial visit during the Lamar game.
"I thought it was great," Robinson said. "I got to see the environment that the team plays in. We watched the shoot around, took a visit of the campus, went to the locker-room and then we watched them play."
After the win over Lamar, Robinson got a chance to talk with Brandon Miller and the coaching staff.
"I talked to the assistant coaches and the head coach," Robinson said. "They just talked about the campus, their staff, and their team this year."
Robinson is looking forward to his upcoming sophomore season at Kenwood. The Broncos finished last season 15-12 and Robinson hopes to improve on that mark.
"I think we are going to do very good," Robinson said. "We are getting ready for the season and our coaches are doing a great job getting us in shape."
Kenwood gets the season started while participating in the Riverside-Brookfield Thanksgiving Tournament next week.
