Daniels: Nasir Robinson report from the MDC

The class of 2008's Nasir Robinson competed in last weekend's Memorial Day Classic. Some indicate that Robinson is a forward, some say he is a guard. Robinson told KSR, "I'm a big guard. And a tough guard that plays defense and can play pretty much every position on the court."

NASHVILLE, TN — It was another tough weekend for Team Final. While they made it out of pool play alive, their tournament run ended when they played Team Melo in the quarterfinals of the Nike Memorial Day Classic.

Team Final is blessed with a bunch of talented players including the best player in the class of 2008, Tyreke Evans. Also on Team Final is fellow junior-to-be Nasir Robinson. Robinson, a 6-4 SF of American Christian HS, is a versatile forward that is developing his guard skills.

"I did good (this weekend) I'm really trying to work on my point guard skills," Robinson said Monday afternoon. "I ran the team a little bit I did alright. I've been in the gym working on my ball handling skills a lot."

Robinson is a tough prospect to get a feel for because he's so versatile. It's hard to determine what position he is and what position he will develop into at the next level. He handles the ball well and is very strong going to the basket.

"I'm a big guard," Robinson said describing himself. "And a tough guard that plays defense and can play pretty much every position on the court."

Regardless of his position he's made a name for himself among college coaches. Schools like Villanova, Pittsburgh and Miami have already offered. Other schools that are recruiting him are Syracuse, Connecticut, Virginia, Maryland and Kentucky.

Those schools obviously like him, but who does Robinson like?

"I like Villanova, Kentucky and Louisville," he responded. "Villanova I like their guard offense and their style of play. With Kentucky they are my favorite college because my favorite player (Antoine Walker) went there."

However, Robinson isn't that focused on his recruitment right now and don't expect Robinson to make a decision any time soon as he is focused on his game rather than his recruitment.

"I really try and not worry about it too much. I just try and work on my game because that will come to me so I don't worry about it."

Robinson will take a few weeks off then he'll attend ABCD Camp and Nike's Hoop Jamboree before heading to Peach Jam and Vegas with Team Final.
