Stanford Robinson transferring to Rhode Island

  • 05/19/2015 4:06 pm in

Former Indiana guard Stanford Robinson will continue his college career at Rhode Island. Robinson announced the news today on his Instagram account.

Robinson averaged 3 points and 1.9 rebounds for the Hoosiers last season and chose the Rams over VCU. As a freshman, he averaged 6.4 points per game and had a career-high 17 points in IU’s win over Iowa at Assembly Hall and 13 in IU’s win over No. 3 Wisconsin.

However, after his playing time diminished this past season, Robinson cited playing time and location as the factors for his departure from Bloomington.

“I hope to find something that is closer to family and where I can have more of an impact on the court,” he said in late March in a release. “I’ve loved everything about being at IU and am thankful for the support of Hoosier Nation.”

The Landover (Md.) native was a member of IU’s 2013 recruiting class that also included Collin Hartman, Devin Davis, Luke Fischer, Noah Vonleh and Troy Williams.

He appeared in 31 games as a sophomore at Indiana, but shot just 33 percent in 11.4 minutes per game. Robinson missed IU’s two exhibition games and its first two regular season games last season due to a suspension and was also arrested by state excise police in April of 2014.

The 6-foot-4 guard will have to sit out next season due to NCAA transfer rules but will have two seasons of eligibility remaining beginning with the 2016-2017 season.

Robinson is one of three IU players to transfer this offseason, joining Max Hoetzel (San Diego State) and Jeremiah April (undecided).

???? Rhody Ram!

    Good luck Stan…keep takin’ it to the hole..but not right into 3 defenders. Have a great career at RI

  • Robert Golden

    I’m assuming he’s wearing URI jersey #6.

  • EBeck

    Which hand will he shoot with there?

  • IU diehard from CT

    Good luck Stan – and please don’t start saying “wicked” all the time!

  • inLinE6

    As I’ve said it before, it actually doesn’t matter… I’m hoping he shoot well both hands. But he won’t see significant drop-off in production with either hand anyways.

    Good luck Stan, I hope it works out at RI for you! Thanks for your time at IU!

  • HannerTime Hoosier

    Stan, loved your energy and tenacity! Gonna miss having a guard who could take it to the hole against any defender . . . CTC blew it with you. Unreal.

  • Hoosier Hall

    Good luck to you Stan! You start hitting those outside shots and you’ll be a dangerous player.

  • At the Quarries

    I’m a little tired of this routine, ha. But good luck as a Rhody Ram dear Stan.

  • INUnivHoosier

    Wicked feathery.

    How, exactly did CTC ‘blow it’? Did he make the fake ID for him? Force him to smoke pot? Did the coach Insist Stan miss lots of shots and commit TO’s? Stan has some skills but let’s not pretend he was a superstar- on or off the court.

    That’s right, I did not read your post — because in the first line you destroyed your entire argument and anything else you wish to proclaim as “true”, so what’s the point of reading it?. Of course, you cannot see your self-contradiction, good relativist that you are, but relativism is self-defeating; it is for those who lack the ability to think with logical premises and to think deeply, hence the propensity of people in the modern West to resort to it. Let’s put your “thought” in the form of a syllogism:
    1. There is no First Cause, since everything must have a cause;
    2. Therefore we are hopelessly caught up in an endless chain of relative causes;
    Conclusion: everything is relative; there is no Absolute and therefore there is not absolute Truth, since all is relative.
    But if all is relative, and there is no absolute truth, then YOUR ASSERTION OF TRUTH CANNOT BE TRUE.
    It cannot be true that there is no truth, and you cannot be “right” if there is only an unending chain of relative causes. Hence Meister Eckhart: “The more he blasphemes (God), the more he proclaims Him.”
    You need to stick to basketball and avoid anything deeper.
    Magna est veritas, et praevelebit.
