St. James (Hagerstown, MD) point guard prospect Justin Robinson turns 17 on Sunday, October 12. This birthday promises to be an exciting one, as this is when the standout senior plans to announce his college choice.
“I’m excited. I’m turning 17 and I’m making the biggest decision of my life,” said Robinson, who says his decision likely will come “around 2:30” on Sunday afternoon.
Maryland, Providence, UNLV and Virginia Tech made up the 6’1”, 175-pound Robinson’s final four in recent weeks. The finalist list now stands at three.
“My coach told me Maryland dropped out,” Robinson said.
Virginia Tech’s Buzz Williams has made Robinson a priority in this class. St. James was one of Williams’ first stops after being named head coach of the Hokies. Yesterday, Williams once again showed how much he wants Robinson to don the orange and maroon.
“He was up here at school,” Robinson said, referring to Williams. “The whole [Virginia Tech] staff came. Coach Williams’ pitch is that to win you have to have a lot of good guards. He discussed his system and how me and Seth [Allen] would work together. He thinks people underestimate me and that I have much more than people think. He thinks I have a lot to offer the team.”
Robinson will meet with his parents and his coaches today for a final discussion on his college choice. From then on, the standout prospect will come to a decision. At this point, he says he has not made a decision. He also says he is not leaning in any one direction.
“It has to be a gut feeling,” Robinson said when asked what would separate one of the schools from the rest. “All of these schools offer great opportunities.”
