DUKE, LOUISVILLE, FLORIDA, NORTH CAROLIN LATEST TO JOIN RECRUITMENT OF DEVIN ROBINSON
by Alex Schwartz
PHILADELPHIA – Devin Robinson of Christchurch (VA) is a player who really saw his stock skyrocket in the spring and now is loaded with high-major looks.
The class of 2014 prospect spoke about his recruitment and more while at the Reebok Breakout Classic.
Robinson listed scholarship offers from Indiana, Connecticut, Providence, Florida State, Rutgers, VCU, Virginia Tech, Notre Dame and Miami, noting that there are others as well.
In addition, the 6-foot-8 prospect said that there are a few schools expressing interest that have yet to offer him.
“Duke just came on the scene,” Robinson began, “Louisville, Florida, and UNC are the newest.”
Robinson went on to talk about what those schools are waiting on before extending him a scholarship opportunity.
“They just got to see me more,” Robinson said. “I don’t think they have seen me in-person yet. So, they’re just looking to come out in the July period and see me play in-person.”
At this point, Robinson claims no favorites and said that all of the schools are coming at him equally hard.
Robinson has been on unofficial visits to Georgetown, Virginia Tech and VCU thus far and has no other trips planned.
The rising senior does not have a commitment timetable and also has not considered whether he would like to sign early or late.
As for what he is looking for in a school, Robinson said, “Great coaching staff, a playing style that fits me, if I’m going to actually play, great campus, fans, and all the above.”
Robinson went on to elaborate a bit on just what style of play he is trying to find in a college program.
“I like the run and gun, I like getting up and down the floor,” Robinson said.
The Old Dominion State wing noted that location will not be a factor for him in his collegiate decision.
Robinson also spent some time talking about his game, including what he feels he does best on the court.
“Strongest part is [that] I’m a great team player,” Robinson said. “I like to get my teammates involved, I’m a leader and I can shoot the ball a little bit.”
On the other side, Robinson said, “Weakest [part is] probably my strength. I got to play [with] more of a high motor [as well].”
Lastly, Robinson discussed what he is looking to accomplish this summer.
“My goal for the summer is just to finish off [at the] top of my class,” Robinson said.
