FAIRFAX, Va. — As a part of our trip on Monday to Paul VI Catholic High School, Inside the Hall had a chance to spend some time with coach Glenn Farello to discuss Stanford Robinson, who recently gave a verbal commitment to Indiana.

Watch and listen to what Farello had to say about what Robinson will bring to the Hoosier program, new IU assistant Kenny Johnson and much more in the embedded media player below:

    Great job Alex. All of this is excellent stuff.

  • plane1972

    This is amazing coverage, Alex. Really appreciate it.

    Umm, Marcus Derrickson (sp?) sounds pretty interesting, huh?

  • You can thank Greg for setting these up. Excellent stuff from him here and as always, on the podcast.

    I understand at this point it’s a big “if”…..but IMO it isn’t that far fetched to ask this question: If Yogi and VO leave early, is Stan Robinson our new starting point guard for 2013?      If VO improves this off season as much as last year, he will be a 1st round guy.    With his best buddy CZ going #1/#2  overall, does Yogi really turn down being a top 15 pick to come back to play a year without him?          2013 is shaping up to be one of those seasons where no one knows what to expect.   We could be #1 again, or we could barely be top 20, and to me it will all come down to how effective Stan Robinson can be as a D1 point guard….   Anya, Perrea, Hollowell, and Sheehey will make up the best frontcourt positions 3-5 in basketball, but a backourt of Robinson, Abell, Etherington, and Patterson…..LOTS of questions….     All I can say is, I hope this kid is good…..(and that Mo Creek comes back with avengance, because if HE is there, I’ll take a Creek/Robinson back court all day with that front court against anyone the rest of the country can put together)

    I think it is pretty far fetched to ask this question. It’s not 100% that Yogi will even start at the PG next year (strong chance too over time possibly). He’s competing with lots of current talent, so he’ll need to put up insane numbers on the strongest NCAA team out there. He wasn’t even the #1 PG in his own class, so to put him in the Top 15 discussion? Let’s not get ahead of ourselves.

    Stan Robinson is 10-15 spots lower than Yogi was in recruiting (Yogi was #30ish prospect).

  • plane1972

    I don’t believe Yogi is one-and-done material. Definitely a stretch considering him a top 15 pick in the draft. I think he is ours for 3-4 years.

  • joebull

    Why is Yogi not one and done material?  Is he as good as Teague?  IU will be very good next year and therefore get lots and lots of attention.  If Yogi is helping lead the charge, he may be one and done material.

  • iufan4life10

    Did he say that he is a big IU fan?  Are there more connections in the DMV than we know about? 

    It sounds like Robinson has been in good hands with coach Johnson and Farello.  I’m excited for the Robinson commits and all of the other possibilities in the DMV.

  • IULaw79

    for one reason and one reason alone….height. Yogi will be an All American PG at IU…but in the NBA, he’d get isolated and posted up on relentlessly.

  • iufan4life10

     Yogi will be an excellent point at IU but when was the last time a PG under 6′ was a one and done?  I’m not saying Yogi is a scrub or even an average player but I think there is only a slight chance that Yogi leaves after one year.

  • IULaw79

    Things like this from you and Greg will play a huge part in keeping the pipelines open to IU.  You could tell how much this coach enjoyed being interviewed.  He has pride in his players and an obvious respect for CTC.  Keeping high school coaches in our corner, first in Indiana and now in the DMV (where i reside), is such a huge factor in recruiting.  Thanks to both you and Greg for this, and for feeding my daily need for IU hoops during this long long offseason.

    Exactly….Not many small PG’s ever do well in the NBA.

  • plane1972

    Yeah, his lack of size was my only point about Yogi. I have nothing but respect for his game. This may sound crazy to some of you, but I prefer having a guy like Yogi over having a Derrick Rose or Kyrie Irving just for continuity’s sake.

  • IULaw79

    I don’t think thats crazy at all.  I would prefer a 4 year player over a 1 and done any day.

    Sorry to get in late. I think we can all see the deterioration of the point guard position in the NBA. Kyrie Irving basically dominated as a rookie, and is probably a top 7 point guard in the league right now. The position is just depleted. You don’t think Yogi could own Jeremy Lin?  I think scouts look at Yogi and see a Damon Staudemire. One year from now, Yogi could supplant the PG starters for Toronto, New York, New Orleans, Atlanta, Milwaukee, Utah, LAL, and possibly Phoenix and Dallas if Nash and Kidd only go one more year……That’s a third of the NBA….      Believe me, I hope I am wrong, but in a league that needs point guards, Yogi will be the best or 2nd best (Kyle Anderson will be great) available…that makes him a top 15 pick regardless of height…

  • IULaw79

    Your comparison to Staudamire is a great one.  But with that you have to realize Staudamire stayed at Zona for 4 years.  And in those 4 years, he put on a lot of muscle.  He would not have been ready for the NBA after his freshman year.  I do think Yogi will be a player in the NBA, but not after 1 year of college.  3 minimum.

  • Dave

    Is it just me or does one have to decide to either not hear the coach or get drowned-out by the high volume of Greg’s voice. Next time please either put the mike halfway or near the interviewee.

  • Miamihoosier

    If Yogi stays 4 years, I think we win 2 national titles in that time. Maybe I am a pessimist by nature, b/c though you guys make valid arguments, and I would love for you to be right, I just think there are too many teams with holes at his position, that would gladly take the risk on him……The physicality of the NBA is greatly diminished. It’s major news that the Pacers are giving hard fouls in the Play offs…..The ticky tack fouls that are called now really negate the size/strength argument….maybe why Nash and Paul have been dominant despite being undersized nearly every night…….how many times you see these two isolated in the post on D? 

  • SCHoosier

    I am a big Yogi fan..but you can count the number of 5-10 point guards who had an impact In the NBA on one hand.

  • NaplesHoosier

    Lets pick up coverage on our “offer” for marcus Derrikson…2015 PF…since we have made an offer for him……

  • NaplesHoosier

    I think Stan Robinson is going to be great for us! just my opinion! But wow he has it all and only going to get better…

  • NaplesHooser

    Lets hope we get BeeJay Anya….thats not a given…but wiil be nice if we do..he would be a great addition and member to the Hoosiers……for sure!!!! He is going to be doing PG this yr in HS at Paul VI… Great positve mentality….what more could u want..? really….this guy is going to be great…

  • MillaRed

    Hey Plane, if you think about it, there is not one current NBA player at Yogi’s height. Correct me if I’m wrong.

  • Let me know if you want to do a story.

  • CreamandCrimson

    I love Yogi’s game and I am thrilled he is going to be at IU but there is no way he could start in the NBA for 1/3 of the league one year from now.

    I will just go with the teams you mentioned.

    Toronto- Jose Calderon, 6’3″ and 210 pounds.

    New York – possible I suppose but Jeremy Lin is 6’3″, 200 pounds

    New Orleans – Jarrett Jack, 6’3″ and 197 pounds

    Atlanta – Jeff Teague, 6’2″ and 180 pounds

    Milwaukee – Brandon Jennings is 6’1″ and 180 pounds

    Utah – Devin Harris, 6’3″ and 192 pounds (he is terrible though)

    LAL – Ramon Sessions, 6’3″ and 190 pounds

    And those are who you consider the bottom tier PGs. It doesn’t mention the ridiculous talent at the top of the position. Guys like Russell Westbrook, Tony Parker, Derron Williams, Derrick Rose, etc.

    Could Yogi have an NBA career? Sure. Could he become the starting PG for a team one year from now? I don’t see it.

    Oops…my browser appears to be posting my posts multiple times. Sorry about that.

  • INUnivHoosier

    I read each one start to finish just to make sure you didn’t add any analysis. Biggest waste of 5 hours of my life.

  • CreamandCrimson

    Sarcasm (or lack thereof) doesn’t translate real well on a message board.

  • HoosierHawk

    Isiah Thomas, rookie out of Washington, had a decent role on Sacremento last year. But it is Sacramento.

  • marcusgresham

    He’s taller than Nate Robinson

    It’s fun to try. I would have thought the 5 hour part was a dead giveaway.

    Sorry for lack of response, Milla. I was having problems with new Disqus and unable to comment. Gresh beat me to it, though. I was going to say Nate Robinson but have very different games.
