Illinois State, currently ranked 24 in Illinois, 6-foot-1, 175-pound, slender athletic build.  Very athletic, competitive, and confident ballplayer. At the plate, ultra-competitive at-bats, never takes an at-bat off. Tall setup in the box; wide base, short stride; loose uphill swing with bat speed that produces line drives with backspin.  Handles velocity; not fooled or off balance versus most offspeed.  Advanced understanding of the strike zone, rarely swings at pitches out of the zone.  Defensively his actions, instincts, footwork, and soft hands make him one of the best shortstops in the state of Illinois regardless of class.  Robinson’s reads off the bat allow him to take efficient angles and field cleanly.  Quick exchange, arm strength is above average; throws from multiple angles. Shortstop profile at the next level.
