Big Man Elbert Robinson Will Take An Official Visit To Louisville

elbertElbert Robinson, a 6-foot-10, 265-pound, prospect from Garland, TX., is one of the very few big men in the 2014 class that is being actively pursued by Rick Pitino and his staff.

Robinson has always been considered to be one of the top ten centers in the 2014 class, but that was mostly based on his massive size and potential.

At the NBAPA top 100 camp last week Robinson showed that he’s recently added some polish to his game. He averaged 10.2 points and 6.2 rebounds at the camp.

Robinson isn’t a name that you’ve heard mentioned with Louisville all that often in recent months, but assistant coach Wyking Jones’ hard work is paying off. “Next month, I plan on going to Louisville on an official visit,” Robinson tells Jeff Borzello of CBS Sports.

Ohio State, Georgetown and Kansas appear to be the three other schools that are in good shape with Robinson. He also has offers from Florida, Oklahoma State, Baylor, Texas and Georgia Tech, among others.

With Zach Price transferring and Stephan Van Treese entering his last year, it makes sense for Louisville to add a big man in the 2014 class. Especially since Chane Behanan and Montrezl Harrell could potentially leave early for the NBA draft at some point.

  1. Can’t tell him to get on the train. Dude looks like he ATE the train! Good to see some bigs targeted, was starting to think we’d see like ten combo guards on the roster for 2014

  2. Pitino will have this guy down to 2% body fat and breaking backboards in no time!

  3. David Dougherty

    sounds like a derrick caracter to me.. Not too interested

  4. At this point in Caracter’s development he had been touted as so great for so long that he was ready to rest on his laurels. This kid has gotten attention for being big, not for his play; i.e., he isn’t spoiled by his success. A big, with a big body, and he can play; he is welcome imo.
