Each and every time Phenom Hoops 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: Micah Robinson
Committed to: TCU
What He Said:
Phenom: What made TCU the place for you in the end?
Robinson: “I would really say it was a lot of things that ultimately made TCU feel like home for me. Some of the main ones were just being the comfortability I felt with the entire coaching staff. I really felt like they were interested in me, not just as a basketball player but as a young man as well, so that definitely stood out to me. Also, I trust the plan that Coach Dixon has in store for me in terms of my development, and how he can help me be successful to ultimately reach my end goal.”
Phenom: What are their plans for how to use you in the coming years?
Robinson: “Yeah so one of the main comparisons they had for me was Desmond Bane and how they used him/ developed him throughout his years at TCU, so definitely in that type of role whether being coming on stagger screens, downs screens, pin downs, ball screens, and things of that sort. Then, I feel I bring a lot more than what I can do offensively with my size and athleticism. I feel I’m able to stay in front of smaller defenders, but also hold my ground against some that may be taller than me, so definitely just that defensive versatility piece alongside my offensive skill set are some things I’ll be bringing to the team!”
Game Description (Robinson from 2022):
“My game is very versatile. I feel I could be thrown in 1-5 offensively, even defensively depending on the other team’s personnel. I am capable of handling the ball and creating looks for myself and my teammates. Combining that with my physical ability, it creates a lot of mismatches for opposing defenders. On top of that, I’ve developed a consistent jumper from the outside, so once I really get that going, I’m going to be a problem for a lot of people. I take pride in my defense, so I feel I make an impact on defense, whether that be snagging defensive rebounds or making small plays like getting deflections and things of that sort.”
What Has Been Said:
“There is just something that I like when watching Robinson in action. The 6’5 athletic prospect brings a ton of versatility to the floor and is one who just knows how to fill up the stat sheet when he is on the court. Impacting the game on the boards, flying high to finish multiple throwdowns, stepping out confidently from three, and being able to play multiple positions, Robinson knows just how to make the most of his minutes on the floor.”
“Robinson continues to just be a solid piece for this team, as the 6’5 prospect was able to score with his size and take advantage of his matchup, but also use his athleticism to get on the boards. He can be used in a variety of ways on the court, which should only continue to attract college coaches.”
