Kent’s Robinson Ivy Bound
Kent School post-graduate guard Izaiah Delbrune-Robinson announced his commitment to Dartmouth over the weekend.
Robinson came to New England from New Jersey, where he previously starred at St. Mary’s High School in Elizabeth and played his grassroots basketball with the New Jersey Bulldogs.
He arrived in the NEPSAC without much fanfare, but established himself as one of the top players in Class A this season averaging 25.2 points, 5.2 rebounds, 3.4 assists, and 2.3 steals per game while shooting 46% from the floor, 37% from the three-point line, and 84% from the free-throw line.
“Izaiah had a terrific year, leading our league in scoring while topping the 30-pont mark five times,” said Kent head coach and longtime D1 assistant, Paul Lee. “The Dartmouth staff did a great job making him feel wanted and I am certain that he will reward their belief in him. He has such a bright future in basketball and beyond.”
Dartmouth was also ahead of the curve in identifying Robinson, as he flew under-the-radar for most of the season despite putting up those big numbers.
A highly skilled and unselfish guard, Robinson shoots the ball well from long-range and has a throwback ability to make shots coming off screens. He passes well, has a high basketball I.Q., and was able to be a high-volume scorer while playing within the flow of the game and not dominating the ball. He's also a solid vertical athlete with good positional size.
