Robinson described Longmire as a slasher-type player that recorded some impressive statistics last year. Longmire averaged 28.2 points per game as a senior along with pulling down nine rebounds, blocking three shots and dishing out seven assists per game. His team finished 20-9 and played in the Mississippi the Class 5A South State tournament according to The Sun Herald (Biloxi).
"He's a two guard, an excellent passer and sees the floor well," said Robinson of Longmire. "A solid basketball player."
Like any high school player, Robinson thinks that Longmire has room for improvement but believes LeKendric is an "up and down court" type, who is a good defender with long arms.
One of the reasons why Longmire may have been so quiet on the national front is that he sat out his junior year because he had transferred from Pascuagoula after his sophomore year. Once Robinson took over the program at the high school, Longmire came back to his original school and was able to play his senior year.
Coincidentally, one of Robinson's former players is Kenny Payne one of the Oregon assistant coaches, although the Ducks had been recruiting Longmire since around Christmas of 2005.
Longmire also played AAU ball for a team from Mobile.
Longmire picked Oregon over South Alabama, Southern Mississippi, Ol' Miss and Fordham.
