Robinson-Earl a five-star attraction in 2019
After looking like one of the best prospects in attendance, regardless of class, at the first stop of the Under Armour Association in New York, five-star power forward Jeremiah Robinson-Earl is looking to build on his success.
The 6-foot-8, 220-pound power forward does it all on both ends of the court. He’s a very gifted all-around scorer on offense, but he’s also a very good passer from the high post. Defensively, he’s a great rim protector and dominates on the glass.
IN HIS OWN WORDS
Robinson-Earl has been a regular visitor to Kansas and saw North Carolina during the Fall. Earlier this week, he stopped by Missouri to check in on the Tigers.
Kansas: “It’s one of the top programs in the country. Everybody wants to play there. It’s a great school.”
North Carolina: “They are really interested. Roy Williams and C.B. McGrath came to my high school games and I took a visit down there. I liked it.”
Robinson-Earl was recently moved to five-star status by Rivals.com and so far it looks like the right call as the 2019 forward looks like a potential star on the college level.
He says that he's completely open but any time a kid grows up so close to Lawrence you have to watch out for the Jayhawks. Robinson-Earl's father Lester Earl (a McDonald's All-American as a high schooler himself) also played at Kansas -- where he was coached by Roy Williams -- but that shouldn't be a huge factor.
Proximity to Lawrence and familiarity with the Kansas program may scare off some, but Robinson-Earl is taking legitimate looks. An offer from UNC could make things interesting, Wake Forest has pushed hard and previous relationships could help the new Missouri staff out.
