The Duke basketball team will have another scholarship player on the roster next season.

According to a report from News 4 San Antonio, incoming freshman Justin Robinson received the scholarship offer from Mike Krzyzewski and Duke this past Monday, essentially rounding out the 2015-16 roster for the Blue Devils.

Robinson, who is the son of NBA legend David Robinson, had planned to join the team next season as a preferred walk on in Duke’s 2015 freshman class. The offer from Coach K now means the Blue Devils will have six freshman on scholarship next season – Brandon Ingram, Derryck Thornton, Luke Kennard, Chase Jeter, Antonio Vrankovic and Robinson.

As a 6’8″ forward for San Antonio Christian, Robinson was a two-time All-State player in Texas.

He’s not expected to be part of Duke’s rotation next season and could redshirt, but it never hurts to have depth in practice and the opportunity to learn the game under arguably the best coaching staff in college basketball.

David has been a die hard fan of Duke Basketball since the 1990's, when Coach K and the Blue Devils slapped the floor and made their way into his heart. During his playing days, David perfected his role on his basketball team as being the guy who would hold everyone on the bench back after a teammate would make a clutch shot. He once played N.C. State legend David Thompson in a game of H-O-R-S-E. David won.

    His dad was 6’7 when he was a freshman at Navy and ended up a 7 footer.  No downside to this move at all and a lot of potentioal.  Low risk-high reward but sounds like he’s a great kid and i’m happy he’s on the roster.
