The 6-foot-6, 185-pound Robinson entered the NCAA transfer portal last month after one season with the Razorbacks program. 

“During the short amount of time I spent at BYU, it felt like home,” Robinson told On3’s Joe Tipton. “I felt an immediate bond with Coach (Mark) Pope, the coaching staff, and my future teammates.”

The guard played in 16 games as a sophomore for Arkansas this past season, with four starts, and averaged 10.2 minutes, 3.4 points and 1.3 rebounds per game.

Robinson started his college career off at Texas A&M, where he transferred after just one season.

He has three years of eligibility remaining.
