Wesley Men’s Hoops Bolsters Frontcourt with Robinson

Posted:

DOVER, Del. – Wesley College head men's basketball coach Jerry Kobasa has announced that Jontier Robinson, a forward/center out of Worton, Md., has committed to play for the Wolverines in the 2013-14 season.  Robinson is the fourth student-athlete to commit to the Wesley program for next season, joining Evan Zimmerman, Xavier Grier and Sam Frain.

Standing six-foot-seven and 210 pounds, Robinson averaged 16.3 points, 15.2 rebounds and 2.9 blocks as a senior for Kent County High School and earned First Team All-Bayside Conference honors.  He also averaged a double-double (10.0 points and 13.2 rebounds) as a junior and led the conference in rebounding in each of his final two seasons with the Trojans.

An incredible defender and leaper, Robinson also was a wide receiver/defensive back on the Kent County football team.

The Wolverines finished 20-8 for the 2012-13 season, which included a program-record 11-game winning streak and their third trip to the NCAA Tournament.  Key victories during Wesley's run were over No. 1 Virginia Wesleyan, ninth-ranked St. Mary's, and 2011-12 National Runner-Up Cabrini College.  All three teams advanced to the Sweet 16 this year with a pair reaching the Elite 8.
