Buzz Williams’ first stop as Virginia Tech head coach was to St. James School (Hagerstown, MD) to recruit class of 2015 point guard Justin Robinson. The 6’1”, 185-pound prospect returned the favor by making an unofficial visit to Blacksburg earlier this month.
“Me and my parents made an unofficial visit to Virginia Tech (on June 6),” Robinson said. “I saw the facilities, the education building, and met all of the staff. Most of the education and the basketball program is good. It was a good unofficial visit.”
Coach Williams reiterated his interest to Robinson, who averaged 14.6 points and 7.9 assists per game as a junior.
“His message to me is that I am his first priority in this class,” said Robinson, who is rated a 4-star prospect by 247Sports, Scout and ESPN. “That’s why my school was his first stop. In 2015 they need a point guard.”
Robinson is not tipping his hand in terms of favorites. At this point, his tentative plan remains to wait until after Peach Jam in July before he narrows his list. Creighton, George Washington, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, Memphis, ODU, Penn State, Providence, St. Joseph’s, Temple, UNLV and Virginia Tech are the schools that have offered so far.
“I’m still waiting to see how everything goes,” Robinson replied when asked if he had narrowed his list. “I’m waiting to see what colleges are going to be around. Possibly after Peach Jam I’ll have narrowed things down. Maybe I can have my decision next fall.”
Robinson is running with Boo Williams’ 17-and-under squad on the AAU circuit. The talented junior said this past Saturday that he is waiting to see if he’ll play in the 2014 NBPA Top 100 Camp, which takes place this week in Charlottesville.
