Duncan Robinson

Division III All-American and reigning National Freshman of the Year, Duncan Robinson will transfer to Michigan for his final three seasons of eligibility. Robinson enjoyed a sensational freshman season at Williams College as he led the Ephs to the D3 National Championship game. Robinson averaged 17.1 points, 6.5 rebounds and 1.8 assists last year. The 6-foot-8 sharp shooter also connected on 81 of 179 three pointers (45.3%).

Robinson led Williams College in minutes played with 1,110 (a school record), points scored (548), three-pointers made (81), three-point percentage (45.3), free throw percentage (87.8), blocks (36) and steals (36). The versatile freshman also grabbed 208 rebounds and dished out 59 assists.

Robinson will have to sit out the upcoming season, but will have three seasons of eligibility after that. He decided to transfer from Williams College after head coach Mike Maker, left the school to take the job at Marist. Coincidentally, Maker is a former John Beilein assistant. 

Robinson visited Michigan Aug 4-6 and had previously visited Davidson. Williams College is an elite academic institution and Robinson liked the academic/athletic combination that Michigan offered.

Michigan doesn’t have any commitments in the 2015 recruiting class and Robinson helps fill that void. He will have the luxury of being on campus for a full year before beginning his Michigan career and will be able to work with the coaches, including strength and conditioning guru Jon Sanderson. He should be ready to make an instant impact once the 2015-16 season rolls around.
