Scout evaluation:

Robinson has all of the tools that you are looking for in a young quarterback prospect, but is an extremely gifted runner. Physically and mentally he is prepared for the next level. Had a tough time picking the area of improvement for his profile. Has the true ability to beat you with his arm or his legs on any snap. He works well outside the pocket extending plays and will find receivers before just taking off when things break down, but when he does run he is always a threat to score. -- Greg Powers, Scout national analyst

More analysis: Moving to DeSoto High School, a perennial powerhouse in Texas' Class 6A, will put Robinson at the helm of an offense that features offensive linemen committed to LSU, Texas, and Missouri, as well as a receiver committed to Colorado. In all, DeSoto's offense includes five four-star players and three three-star players across the 2017-18 classes.

Robinson is 1 of 2 quality quarterback options for DeSoto, which also boasts 2018 signal caller Courtney Douglas, who should soon emerge as an FBS-caliber recruit.

This fall is a big one for Robinson as he tries to prove that his dip in numbers from his sophomore season to junior campaign was a product of nagging injuries and turnover at the receiver position, rather than personal regression. He was as dangerous as ever as a runner when we saw him a hand full of times, so think he'll be fine this fall, especially considering the talent he'll have around him.

  • 2014: Taking over the reins at perennial Texas power Denton Guyer, Robinson thrived, amassing 4,215 total yards of offense and 50 total touchdowns.
