Each and every time Phenom Hoop Report gets to report or sees a commitment from a player we have seen over the years, it is always a fantastic day. It is great to see players achieve their goal to play at the next level and it is such a great accomplishment for that player.
Here is the latest commitment.
Player: Anthony Robinson
Committed to: USF
What Was Said by Phenom Hoops:
““Moving onto a player who understands how to capitalize on opportunities within the flow of the action, Anthony Robinson. He’s a long, fluid, athletic post prospect with excellent physical tools and a ton of long-term upside remaining. Robinson plays with a high motor, unselfish nature, and looks to involve himself through making hustle plays. He’s already a strong defensive presence inside the paint, but also moves well in space on switches. Robinson also stood out as one of the top rebounders on this team. Next in his development process is working to get stronger, as it would make him an even better finisher through contact. Coach Whaley on Robinson: “Anthony is an athletic rim-protector who plays hard and above the rim. He’s a constant threat for lobs. Can keep working to refine his skillet. Possesses a lot of favorable tools.” Robinson enjoyed a nice showing at camp, and will definitely be a prospect to keep an eye on over the coming years at Christ School.”
“The 6’10 big has a strong frame, moves well in the post, and is active on the boards consistently; he showed all of that down in Charlotte just a few weeks ago. But he also has a developing offensive feel, finishing at the rim when possible and showing touch down in the post, using his broad shoulders and length to his advantage. With his big hands and upside in his game, Robinson could be a blossoming talent in North Carolina, which is why it will be interesting to see who gets more involved with him.”
“Between his physical tools and development over the summer season, it’s easy to why Anthony Robinson’s stock has started to ascend. He’s a long, fluid, athletic big man who knows how to impact the game through finishing, rebounding, blocking shots, and running the floor. Robinson offers a pretty straightforward identity, which has been a massive part of what makes him so appealing as a long-term prospect to college coaches. Folks should be able to see clear growth in Robinson’s game over the last calendar year. His foundational abilities are already quite useful, but should only get better and better over the foreseeable future.”
“He’s an active, steady two-way big man with solid touch, finishing ability, rebounding instincts, and defensive prowess. Robinson is a capable scoring option but really doesn’t require many touches to make a consistent impact. He excels at simply taking advantage of lobs, putbacks, drop-offs, and whatever else lurks around the basket. Robinson alters and blocks shots well, but could become even better in that area. Expect a ton of programs to start getting involved with the two-way big man.”
