Shawan Robinson, a 6-2 rising senior combo guard from Raleigh (NC) Leesville Road, has committed to Clemson, according to Elite Hoop Recruits.

Robinson is ranked No. 100 in Prep Stars' Pre-Summer Top 100. He boosted his stock with a strong showing in the Boo Williams Invitational in April and has played well since at events such as the Peach Jam last week. He plays AAU ball with the Raleigh Heat, which features Broughton High star Shavlik Randolph.

Prep Stars on Robinson's Boo Williams performance: "High-majors want him to play PG. Whether he can ultimately pull that off remains to be seen. But he does plenty of good things now. Shoots the ball extremely well when he's on -- and he was really on for most of Boo. (Although his shoulder-level release could pose problems down the line.) Can handle the ball. Found his way into the mid-range area for floaters and stop-and-pop jumpers."

Shawan's father, Darryl, is the head coach at Leesville Road and played for Bobby Cremins at Appalachian State. Leesville featured Florida State-bound McDonald's All-American Anthony Richardson last season.
