Robinson Transitions To PG

With Quinn Cook at Oak Hill, DeMatha has turned their PG duties over to 2012 prospect James Robinson.

Last year Hyattsville (Md.) DeMatha was led by one of the nation's top lead guards in Quinn Cook. But he left for Mouth of Wilson (Va.) Oak Hill during the off-season, and Mike Jones turned over the point guard duties to James Robinson.

Through nearly 20 games this season, Robinson, a 6-foot-3 guard, has DeMatha sitting with a 15 – 4 record.

"The season is going pretty good," Robinson said. "But there are still a lot of games left and we have our goals to win two championships and the Alhambra championship at the end of the season."

Robinson, a 2012 prospect, has been known by most as a combo guard. But he's working to make the transition to point guard.

"It's still a learning process everyday trying to transition to the point guard position, but the coaching staff has done a really good job of preparing my game," Robinson told

"Right now I like to think of myself as a smart player," he said. "I'm not really a point guard or a shooting guard I'm just a basketball player that plays defense and I've been working on my outside game more than people know."

Robinson has picked up scholarship offers from Notre Dame, Virginia, Georgetown and Miami. He also has interest from UCLA, Maryland and Georgia Tech.

"It's going pretty well right now," Robinson said of the recruiting process. "I know my dad is pretty heavily involved in that."

"Right now I'm getting closer to making a decision a little bit before the start of my senior year, but right now it's pretty much undecided," he added.

Following his junior season, Robinson, a four-star prospect, has plans to take some unofficial visits, including one to Miami.

Robinson,'s No. 72 player in 2012, plays with Team Takeover on the spring and summer circuit.
