Robinson High On Pack

N.C. State has made one thing certain, they are going to recruit the top guards in the country.

Fairfax Paul VI (Va.) guard Stanford Robinson fits that mold.

Along with an offer from N.C. State, 2013 four-star recruit claims offers from Virginia Tech, Virginia, Maryland, Miami, Villanova, Marquette, Wake Forest, Rutgers, Xavier and more. So far, he's visited Villanova (twice), Miami, N.C. State, Rutgers and Virginia Tech.

Clearly, there's a lot to be desired about a 6-foot-4 athletic guard with elite scoring ability.

From being on the circuit, he's sparked friendships with current signees Rodney Purvis and Tyler Lewis.

"Me and Rodney Purvis are good friends," Robinson said. "We've talked about N.C. State a couple of times.

"I can't say enough about Tyler. He's a true point guard."

Robinson also has developed a solid rapport with the N.C. State coaching staff.

"Me and (assistant) coach (Rob) Moxley, we talk a lot. He calls with coach (Mark) Gottfried," he said. "The coaches have been coming to my games."

N.C. State assistant Orlando Early was in Columbia to watch Robinson play at the Chick-Fil-A Classic last week. Scout's No. 60 overall prospect took notice.

"It means a lot to me," Robinson said. "It means they just aren't talking to me. They are actually taking their time out to come and support my games, and it shows they are still recruiting me."

Robinson is being regarded as a combo guard, but he's ranked as Scout's No. 11 shooting guard.

"Schools are recruiting me to be a combo guard," he said, "but right now, I'm more of a two."
