Stanford Robinson of Paul VI Catholic picks Indiana


By the end of the one-day visit, the Paul VI Catholic junior swingman knew where he wanted to go to college.

“I’ve been going through the recruiting process for the last couple years now and I felt like it was time to come up with a decision,” said the 6-foot-3 Robinson, a second-team All-Met who averaged a team-leading 13.5 points this past season as the Panthers went 35-3 and finished as the Washington area’s top-ranked team.

“My final three were Indiana, Villanova and Rutgers. When I was sitting down thinking about everything, I came out with Indiana being the right fit for me 100 percent.”

Robinson said he and Hoosiers Coach Tom Crean hit it off during his campus visit. Additionally, he was comfortable with Indiana’s new assistant coach Kenny Johnson, who previously was a Paul VI assistant coach during Johnson’s first two years of high school and during his under-16 season with the Team Takeover travel team. Johnson was an assistant coach at Towson this past season.

“With Coach Johnson being there, it added on,” Robinson said. “It was the icing on the cake.”

Robinson said he is friendly with the two Washington area natives already on the Indiana roster: DeMatha graduate Victor Oladipo and former Oxon Hill standout Maurice Creek.
