Glenn Robinson III verbally committed to Michigan today. Robinson, a 6-foot-6 wing, is the first signee in Michigan’s class of 2012. Robinson has consistently named Michigan his leader and the mutual interest was clear with three unofficial visits in the last month or so.
Here’s what Robinson had to say on his commitment:
I just talked to my mom and dad and coaches and everybody in my family. Yesterday I just started to like it more and more and I figured there was no point in waiting. Michigan is where I want to go. They have a great academic program and basketball program. I just like everything about Michigan and that’s where I want to be. I think I’ll fit perfectly.
Robinson said Beilein told him he will be playing either the two or three when he gets to campus. More to come later. He is rated a three star prospect by Rivals and the number 118 player in the class of 2012. We’ll have much more coming soon including a more full scouting/Google stalking post.
Michigan now has 1 scholarship remaining in the class of 2011 and 1 scholarship remaining in the class of 2012. I still expect that one remaining scholarship will be used for a big and the other one used for a wing, regardless of class. The lead candidate for the 2011 scholarship is wing forward Dominique Pointer, who is down to a final three of Michigan, St. Johns and West Virginia.
