College: Williams College (DIII) (2013-2014), Michigan (2015-2018)

College Breakdown: Duncan Robinson started his career at Division III Williams College before transferring to the University of Michigan, where he spent the final three years of his collegiate career. Robinson averaged 9.2 points on 38.4 percent shooting from beyond the arc during his senior campaign and was a 41.9 percent career 3-point shooter during his time in Ann Arbor. The New Hampshire native hit the seventh-most 3-pointers in the Big 10 during the 2017-2018 season and is 3rd all-time on the Big Ten’s career 3-point percentage list. Robinson rarely commits careless giveaways and ranked 3rd in the Big 10 last season in turnover percentage and 1st during his junior year. The Michigan swingman helped the Wolverines reach the 2018 NCAA Championship Game, where they lost to Villanova.

Scouting Report: At 6-foot-8, Robinson has the size to be a stretch four, with most of his minutes coming at small forward. Robinson is a lights-out shooter from long range and can score off the dribble in the mid-range as well. He’s an excellent catch-and-shoot type of player and is deadly from the corner. Robinson plays with an extremely high motor, which helped him make the jump from Division III basketball to Division I, and is a solid playmaker, creating opportunities for his teammates off of slashes to the basket.

Organizational Fit: Robinson will join the Miami Heat organization, spending time in Sioux Falls with the Skyforce. Sioux Falls ranked 11th in 3-point percentage a season ago and will have a good shot at cracking the Top 10 during the 2018-2019 season with Robinson’s shooting prowess. The Skyforce have an excellent track record of developing players and sending them to the NBA. Past Gatorade Call-Ups include Briante Weber, Okaro White, Henry Walker, Larry Drew II and Tyler Johnson.
