SOUTH BEND, Ind. (WNDU) - Isaiah Robinson is a 2022 graduate of South Bend Riley High School. But before walking across the stage, he was running gymnasiums around northern Indiana -- finishing his high school career as an all-NIC honorable mention player.

He’s got the option to play college ball, but instead he’s heading to Purdue University on a prestigious academic scholarship to study kinesiology.

Ironically enough -- the decision stemmed from an injury that kept him away from basketball for part of his senior season.

He’ll receive a scholarship covering full tuition to Purdue University through the Posse Foundation to further his academic career. Robinson says he also plans to serve as a manager for the Boilermaker basketball team.
