Virginia Tech head coach Buzz Williams and company have received a commitment from one of their top targets in the class of 2015. St. James (Hagerstown, MD) point guard Justin Robinson announced this afternoon that he will attend Virginia Tech, choosing the Hokies over Providence and UNLV, among others.
Robinson is the second class of 2015 commitment for Tech, which scored Orlando (FL) native Kerry Blackshear, a low post prospect, last weekend.
Robinson, a native of Manassas (VA), attended Montrose Christian (Rockville, MD) as a sophomore before transferring to St. James for his junior year. As a junior, the 6’1″, 175-pound point guard averaged 14.6 points and 7.9 assists per game while leading St. James to a 22-5 overall record.
Tech’s Williams had Robinson high on his wish list early.
“Coach Buzz’ first visit was to St. James when he got the job at Virginia Tech, so that was nice,” Robinson said in this TSL Pass article posted on May 22.
Robinson is rated a 3-star recruit by 247Sports, Rivals and ESPN. Scout.com, which is led in its basketball recruiting coverage by National Recruiting Analyst Evan Daniels, ranks him on the 4-star level.
What I love about Justin Robinson is his feel & poise at the PG spot. Understands his role & is a true set up guy. Also can make shots.

The Hokies likely aren’t finished with class of 2015 recruiting. Cape Henry Collegiate (Virginia Beach, VA) small forward Chris Clarke has VT in his final four along with Connecticut, Creighton and Tennessee. Two-guard CJ Williamson, a teammate of Blackshear’s at Evans High School in Orlando, will announce between Virginia Tech and Texas Tech on October 27.
