Robinson becoming more comfortable at the point

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – Indiana commit Stanford Robinson (Fairfax, Va.) is taking part in this week’s NBAPA Top 100 Camp at the University of Virginia, an event he called “the best I’ve ever been to.”

The 2013 guard from Paul VI Catholic played well individually in the first game – six points and seven rebounds – but his team came up on the losing end. Robinson attacked the rim strong and played tough defense throughout.

Robinson told Inside the Hall he spoke with the entire IU coaching staff this week.

Tom Crean talked to him about adjusting to more a point guard role rather than shooting guard.

“We just talked about basketball and what I’m getting better on,” Robinson said. “I don’t think it’s that hard because I’ve been playing the one at my school now. I’ve just been working a lot off the pick-and-roll action. That’s what he specifically told me to work on.”

Robinson plans on attending the Kevin Durant Skills Academy on June 24-26 in Chicago and possibly the LeBron James Skills Academy on July 6-9 in Las Vegas.

He won’t visit Bloomington until next season, when he’ll see the Hoosiers take on North Carolina in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge.

When asked about IU’s potential preseason No. 1 ranking, Robinson lit up.

“It just puts a target on my back when I’m out here performing,” he said. “I actually can’t wait.”

    That target either makes you play harder or wilt under the pressure…I feel like Stanford will pick option one a proudly show what IU is getting
    I mean, I have the same target at the office with my AJ Moye desktop background, my Alex Bozich bobble head, and ITH as my home screen

    I hope he can be successful at the 1 in college. The advantage of a 6’4” point guard who can see out a trap in huge. It’ll be interesting to see if Yogi has the ball in his hands at all times up and down the floor or if we continue to use 2 primary ball handlers like we did with Jordy and Verdell / Victor.

    Stan is going to do amazing things at IU. Talented, intelligent, athletic, nice young man. Talking about “coachable”! As ESPN says “he gets better everytime you see him!” It gives me the “creaps” to see him in a blue/white shirt! lol I read that his is wearing IU socks though. 🙂

    I think we just got our answer to your question. Stanford Robinson just put up 24 points and 5 rebounds on some of the best players in the country, which is the best performance in the top 100 camp so far. Seems to be rising to the occasion. I heard he hit a couple 3’s and finished well at the rim with his right. At 6’4, 6’5, this guy is poised to be one of the best all around wings in the B1G for years to come. Love what he brings to the table.
