For those that haven't heard, Stan Robinson verballed to Indiana last night. This is good and bad. Bad because he was our main SG target not named Aaron Harrison. The good news is that the staff can now look at other options/ focus on their attention towards the twins or another SG. Some of these dominos needed to start to fall. Right now the staff is spread thin in my opinion (so many guard options). Indiana is for real and anyone who thinks that a recruit isn't going to take an offer from them seriously needs to re-think that. There were quite a few people who thought Indiana wasn't a favorite to land Stan, this proves how strong the Indiana brand is.
Here's the Indiana Herald Times Blog piece including an interview with Stan's coach, Glen Farello:
Stan is the 3rd Team Takeover AAU member to join the Hoosiers' ranks: From Telep -
"The Indiana Hoosiers constructed another pipeline and it paid off in the form of 2013 wing Stanford Robinson (Fairfax, Va./Paul VI).
Robinson, ranked No. 46 in the ESPN 60, committed to the Hoosiers over Villanova. In picking Tom Crean’s Big Ten program, Robinson became the third basketball player from Team Takeover to make the transition to Bloomington. In the fall of 2013, he’ll join former Takeover and Paul VI assistant – now IU assistant – Kenny Johnson.
Maurice Creek and Victor Oladipo, former Takeover standouts, helped pave the way for Robinson to Indiana. "
