In its continuing search for a power forward in the Class of 2009, Seton Hall has targeted Thomas Robinson of Brewster (N.H.) Academy. Problem is: many other schools have target the 6-foot-8, 210-pound Robinson as well.
A Washington, D.C. native, Robinson broke out at the Reebok All-American Camp in Philly and is continuing his strong play in Las Vegas.
“He challenges shots, looks to score in the paint and knows how to use his athleticism,” Scout.com analyst Evan Daniels wrote. “His performance against Illinois Magic had to have made a good impression on the eight head coaches in the building to see him.”
He told Scout he’s considering Kansas, Duke, Memphis, Pittsburgh, Virginia, South Florida, Providence, Seton Hall, Maryland, Louisville, Virginia, Virginia Tech, Kentucky, George Mason, George Washington, Georgetown, Georgia. Duke has not yet offered.
Robinson says he’s looking for an uptempo system and will decide midway through his senior year at Brewster. He previously played at Riverdale Baptist (Va.).
