The story of Overland High School’s back to back state titles starts with Indiana commit and Colorado’s top prospect Deron Davis, but a closer look at shows the play of 2018 guard Jervae Robinson was also key to the Trailblazer’s 25-3 championship run. The 6-2 guard scored 13.8 points a game running the point. A smart player with the skills of a point guard, when needed, Robinson can score with multiple games with 20 or more points.
Looking at his own game Robinson says, “I have gotten stronger, faster, improved my jump shot and attacking the rim more aggressively. Robinson goes on to say he is, “taking defense as a priority now, just all around I’ve developed into a better player.”
Robinson’s all-around game and proven performance as a winner has garnered interest, but as of yet no offers. Currently he has Grand Canyon, UT Arlington, Mercer, Colorado State, South Dakota State, Nebraska-Omaha, Coastal Carolina, UC Bakersfield and San Diego. Beyond the court Robinson is a good academic bet boasting a 3.4 GPA.
Also, Robinson is a winner! His play became a catalyst for the title run. Looking back at the title and why Overland was able to repeat Robinson says his Trailblazers improved on, “defense and respecting the process and focusing on teamwork.”
