Video: Glenn Robinson III at IBCA Top 100 Showcase


Players from all over the State of Indiana converged at Ben Davis High School on Monday for the Annual IBCA Top 100 Showcase. The event, which is open to NCAA coaches, features the top underclassmen in Indiana. Participants engage in a variety of drills, skill evaluations, seminars and three rounds of scrimmages prior to the day’s end. This year’s event was highlighted by names such as Gary Harris, Zak Irvin, Basil Smotherman and many others. Among those in attendance was class of 2012 Michigan commitment Glenn Robinson III. Michigan head coach John Beilein and assistant Jeff Meyer were in attendance at the event, keeping close tabs on Robinson and many others. Check out UM Hoops’ scouting notes on Robinson as well as video from his scrimmage play.

Scouting Report:
Robinson was among the top performers at Monday’s IBCA Top 100 Showcase. The 6-foot-6 Michigan pledge made an impact across the board with his solid all around play. Robinson scored with great versatility: knocking down jump shots, scoring out of the low post post, finishing contested drives off the bounce. He welcomed contact to earn free throw opportunities and finished well. The class of 2012 star continued to build on his strong summer as he showed off an impressive, versatile offensive game throughout the day. He also added a handful of impressive dunks, several of which are featured in the video above.

  • Flwolve

    Big Dog Jr. = big time stud

  • YpsiTuckyBoy

    Can Stauskus and GRIII just quit high school and come play in 2011? Please?

  • sane1

    GRIII looking more like Big Dog dad every time out. Beilein was so wise to get in on him early and lock him up. The sky’s the limit for this kid.

    • kennyYe

      very much true. There is a lot of confidence in his game, just like the big dog. 2012 might  be the best class Beilein ever has.  

  • matt d

    This kid is for real, he’s going to be pushing for a fifth star at this rate. His game is so smooth, no wasted movement.

  • GregGoBlue

    Wow. Just… wow. Excited to see he and Stauskas play together, both such talented players. Bravo, Beilein! 

  • His demeanor impresses me. Plays hard and with purpose but doesn’t seem to get too emotional regardless of the play. Doesn’t lose focus. Stone cold killer. He’s going to be special.

    • sane1

      Just like dad in that regard, too. Had the privilege to watch Big Dog when he came to Crisler  (Fab 5 era). Big Dog was unflappable.

      • Suavdaddy

        And unstoppable.  Most dominant college player I had ever seen.  A beast.  He single-handedly beat us several times. 

  • Bballkdp

    Cant wait to see him at UM..along with Nick…man if Coach can only pull in Mitch McGary to go along with them =)  Either way great pick ups with them both

  • JayRich

    Is GRIII projecting as a SF or PF?  Seems to have body of a SF but more inside game.

    • I think I’d call him a three but I do think he has the ability to play the four, especially in this offense where the four is more of a wing spot.

  • A2JD

    With the way his game is progressing, I think GR III will be Michigan’s first McDonald’s All-American since Daniel Horton.

  • A2JD

    I know we’ll be losing Novak & Douglass after this season but if TH Jr. returns for the 2012-13 season, Michigan will be the most talented and deepest it’s been in over 10 years.

    • Mattski

      Possibly true even if Hardaway LEAVES. I may be getting misty-eyed, but I begin to see us as an elite program. 

  • YpsiTuckyBoy

    Dylan, what do you think the odds are that we take another 2012 guy, and, if so, who? Personally, I’m really hoping we snag (1) McGary or (2) Jankovic, but bank it if we can’t get either of them or some as-unknown stud. I like the huge line-ups. As much as I’m hoping for that, I just don’t see McGary coming here, and Jankovic appears intent on taking his time with his decision, during which time it seems that Irvin or another will take that spot. Thoughts?

  • Wayman Britt

    Robinson and Stauskas will elevate UM’s talent beyond anything we have seen in Ann Arbor in many, many years.  Now we need Monte Morris for the icing on the cake. Of course if we get McGary he would be the icing, cherry and all other toppings.

    • redman345

      if we dont get mcgary or jankovic.dont forget sherron dorsey walker.he still has an um offer.and beilein loves the three.and thats walker forte.and he could put it on the floor.look for dorsey walker to be our next what i tell u

  • Bdon

    Damn, this kid is special. As Lloyd would say, Tremendous! 

  • KRN

    2013 NBA mock draft:

    Look at #6.

    • A2JD

      Nice projection for Timmay.  The funny part is it has the Pistons taking 2 combo guards.

    • DingoBlue

      I was expecting Tim to be in the draft discussion moving forward.  And it is quite early, but wow that’s surprising for me.  Go Tim.

  • DawgPound

    He banged hard on that fool at the beginning.  Boom.
