Irish offer four-star small forward
Notre Dame offered four-star small forward Devin Robinson of Christchurch (Va.) School last week. Robinson is now up to 15 offers, and the 6-foot-7, 180-pound standout said he wasn't expecting Notre Dame to jump on board when they did. "The offer surprised me a little bit," Robinson said. "I didn't know I would be getting offered by them. [Notre Dame assistant] (Anthony) Solomon contacted my high school coach and told him they were offering me after seeing me play recently in Pittsburgh. I texted Coach Solomon after that, and he was just telling me to keep up the good work on the court. Notre Dame really likes my game." After reclassifying as a junior, Robinson was named Virginia Player of the Year for Division II this past year. He led Christchurch to a state championship title this year, averaging 17.7 points, 9.4 rebounds, 2.6 blocks, and 1.3 assists per game. "I know that Notre Dame has great history as a school and with their athletic programs," Robinson said. "They provide their athletes with great support to succeed. I know that it's a great school. I definitely want to visit." "Wherever I go, I want it to feel like family," Robinson said. "I want to get a great education as well. Style of play is going matter, I like to get up and down the court and run and gun out there." Robinson has a long and athletic frame and is known for having a serious range from deep. "I can score from anywhere and I shoot pretty well," Robinson said. "I can also get the ball to my teammates when I drive in the lane. I need to work on my handle the most." Robinson is planning on visiting Connecticut this summer, but he's in no rush to make a decision and plans on taking official visits in the fall. Robinson is ranked as the No. 23 small forward in 2014.
