Juco Big Man to Visit DePaul

DePaul coach Oliver Purnell's search for some frontcourt help in the 2013 recruiting class continues with an upcoming visit from a junior college power forward.

DePaul expects a visit this weekend from Forrest Robinson, a 6-10, 230 lb. sophomore power forward from South Plains junior college in Texas.

Robinson is an Eastland, Texas native who originally signed with North Texas in 2011. Forrest then left North Texas due to a coaching change.

Forrest competed this summer in the Mullens Sports Top 100 Camp for junior college prospects.

The DePaul coaching staff spotted Robinson at a Juco Jamboree in Dallas awhile back.

"We played in a Jamboree and DePaul was there," said Forrest. "They came down to see me a couple times. I talked with Coach Purnell and Coach (Billy) Garrett on the phone. They decided to bring me up on the visit. I'm going to come there and check it out."

Robinson is also receiving interest from Bradley, Mississippi State, and Tennessee Tech.
