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.
