Robinson Holds A Pair Of Offers

Jeff Robinson is a high major prospect, but he has to share the post with a handful of other talented big men on his high school team. recently caught up with the junior to get an update on his season and recruitment.

Jeff Robinson would be the prime post threat at most schools, but things are a little different at Indianapolis (Ind.) Lawrence North. The Wildcats are loaded with talent and size inside, so he has to share the post with a handful of other high major prospects.

"The more competition around me, the better it makes me as a player," Robinson said. "The more I work out with other big men at my position the more it helps.

Lawrence North is equipped with six players over 6-foot-7, including Stephan Van Treese,'s 40th ranked prospect, and Dominique Ferguson, who ranks in the Top 10 in the 2010 class.

Despite so much talent, the Wildcats are in the midst of a two game losing streak and have dropped three of their last four. Robinson, however, thinks they are going to pull it together for a tourney run.

"It's been pretty good, with some ups and downs," Robinson said about the season. "I think we are coming together now as a team. I just think we are starting to play better and getting ready for sectionals."

Robinson, a 6-foot-9 power forward, is shooting an impressive 55-percent from the field for the 15-5 Wildcats.

"I think I've made a lot of headway in certain skills that I didn't have going into high school my freshman," Robinson said. "I think I've made a lot of improvements defensively and being able to guard, not just a post position, but also small forwards."

As far as recruiting goes Robinson is getting strong interest from Illinois, Purdue and Michigan State. The Illini and Boilermakers are the only two that have offered a scholarship.

"Right now I'm just going to wait for a while," Robinson said. "I think I'm just going to wait [to make a collegiate decision].
