Henry DeMarcus Robinson (b. Oct. 29, 1991) looks for all the world as if he has the potential to be another Darren Sproles, based on his build, high school exploits and video highlights.

However, undisclosed personal issues reportedly had him flirting with the idea of leaving the team earlier this year, which would be rather tragic for us fans. The four-star back was the jewel of our 2010 recruiting class, after all.

At last word, though, he remains on the team, but is well behind Bryce Brown, John Hubert, Angelo Pease and Robert Rose on the depth chart at running back. Most likely, it's his blocking skills holding him back, because the kid can run.

Robinson rushed for a Wichita City League season-high 1,720 yards as a senior and for nearly 5,000 yards in his career at Wichita Northwest, putting him up there with Brown and Barry Sanders as all-time Air Capital greats.

That earned him multiple first-team Class 6A honors and a Kansas Shrine Bowl invitation, as well as a ranking by Rivals.com as the 18th-best running back nationally in his class. And he might not even see the field this year. Wow.
