One of the fastest rising seniors in the Chicago area this season has been Darius Robinson. In his first year at Kenwood Academy, the 6’1” guard has been averaging 14.2 points, 5.1 assists, and 1.9 rebounds per game. 

After spending last season at Thornton High School, Robinson made the move to an ultra-talented Kenwood squad for his senior season. He said the appeal of Kenwood was their schedule, playing for head coach Mike Irvin, and the goals of winning a city and state championship. 

Robinson is one of the top shooters in the entire state. In his most recent game, he hit seven threes on his way to a twenty-five-point performance. He is a pure knockdown shooter from the outside but can also make plays off the dribble. Not only a threat from three, he also has the ability to create for himself in the mid-range. More than just a scorer, he has good length and is tough perimeter defender. 

His shooting abilities have been able to catch the attention of several division one programs as of late. Loyola (IL), Monmouth, St. Louis, and Western Illinois are all currently recruiting Robinson. The senior said that Monmouth is currently recruiting him the hardest. 

For teams in need of a shooter, Robinson could be a steal in a programs 2022 recruitment class. He played with the Meanstreets program.
