Friars New #1 Target: Justin Robinson

Here's the first video I made, from the spring/summer AAU season of 2013, where Robinson played with Hokies Elite. All footage is courtesy of Raymond Griffith.

This second one is a longer look, with highlights from his junior year at St. James in Hagerstown, MD, and is thanks to loads of video creators I credit in the video's description.

As you can see, Robinson is lightning quick, has outstanding court vision, and can score when necessary off penetration, or with his range that extends to the 3-point line. Should he choose Providence, it wouldn't surprise me to see him backing up Dunn for a year, then being handed the keys his sophomore year, with Dunn entering the NBA Draft early after graduating in 2016 (following a deep tourney run, of course).

I also got in on the "hopelessly coerce prospective recruits with photoshopped magazine cover" thing. It was fun making it though, and I'm proud of my improving self-taught photoshop skills.

Drew Edwards Highlights

I was able to cut some highlights up from Drew Edwards 2013 AAU campaign, thanks to Youtube user Raymond Griffith. After watching eight of his games in full, I really think Cooley got a good one. Edwards plays well within a structured offense, which IMO could translate to immediate minutes for him at either guard spot. I'll be looking forward to following his progress during his senior season.

BET Championship Rooke and Hassett Version

I'm a big fan of Gus and Raff, but they can't compete with John Rooke and Joe Hassett as far as capturing the feelings and emotions of every Friar fan on the night PC won the BET Championship. The whole game just feels more exciting, and the end of the game still gives me legitimate chills every single time. Great call by two great broadcasters.

Kyron Cartwright Mix (2014 PG Verbal)

There wasn't all that much as far as Kyron-specific highlights, so I took the liberty to piece together what I could from the team highlight vids from the good folks at Gazettes Sports. Granted they didn't show many bad plays, but I came away more impressed by Cartwright than I was going into making the video. I can see Kyron fitting nicely into a 10-15mpg backup role next season should he choose the Friars. With the departure of Fortune, and no other additions as I'm writing this on June 13, 2014, Kyron may be relied upon for more than that. Good IMO, throw him right into the fire, it'll be better for him in the long run.
