Paul VI (Fairfax, VA) junior Stanford Robinson is a hot commodity among major Division 1 programs. The 6’3″, 185-pound two-guard has picked up another ACC scholarship offer, from the University of Virginia, to go along with previous ACC offers from Miami, N.C. State, Virginia Tech and Wake Forest. Current Big East and future ACC program Pittsburgh has offered, and so have Big East programs including Marquette, Rutgers, Seton Hall and Villanova.
Through six games, Robinson, who plays on a talented squad that boasts at least seven Division 1 recruits, is averaging 12.5 points and six rebounds per contest. His best game of the season came against an Episcopal squad that features Wake Forest-bound senior wing Arnaud Adala Moto and George Washington-bound senior guard Kethan Savage. Robinson had 16 points and 10 boards in the 67-59 win.

“My dad told me when I was young I always was playing with a basketball, and since then I’ve never stopped. So I’ve always been a basketball guy,” Robinson said.
The standout junior denies having a favorite in the recruiting process. Miami, N.C. State, Rutgers, Villanova and Virginia Tech are the schools he has visited unofficially so far. He says he may take in a college game or two this season, but right now he is in no hurry to decide his college future.
“I don’t plan on making my commitment until the beginning of next school year,” Robinson said.
