On Saturday at the National Hoops Festival, 6-foot-1 guard Justin Robinson was the emerging prospect. A standout at Saint James (Md.) School, scored 12 points and tossed out eight assists in a Saint James over Burlington (N.J.) Life Center.
"It wasn't the best, but I did what I had to do help my team win," Robinson told Scout.com. "I'm just glad my team won."
Up against highly touted guard Traci Carter, Robinson more than held his own. He showed terrific court vision, put his passes on the spot and also showed an ability to score when he needed to.
"It's whatever my team needs," he said when asked to describe his game. "I can pass. I can score. I can shoot. I play on the defensive end. I'll do whatever it takes."
With his play, it's no surprise college programs are beginning to show more interest. He currently has two scholarship offers.
"I've heard from a lot of schools," Robinson said. "I just got offered by ODU last week. My first offer was from St. Peters. Now it's just rolling. It's getting better and better by the day."
"I visited George Mason, George Washington and I went to Temple the Thanksgiving break weekend," he added.
Robinson is currently averaging 16 points and 7.4 assists through five games for Saint James.
