    Ranked No. 21 in the 247Sports Composite, Robinson is one of the best combo forwards in the class. Moreover, his ceiling is very high. At this point, Robinson is already a matchup nightmare for most opponents. He's long and athletic, and knows how to get points in a variety of ways. Robinson has consistent range out to the perimeter, and is able to finish at the rim in transition. Defensively, he can guard multiple positions and is an effective help defender due to his length.

    Robinson's stock rose dramatically during the spring, when he burst onto the scene with the Squires Richmond AAU program. When the live period began in late April, Robinson's main offers were VCU, Virginia Tech, Connecticut, Rutgers, Towson and Boston University. That quickly changed, after a standout performance at the Pittsburgh Jam Fest.

    An interesting note about Robinson: he's the first out-of-state five-star prospect to commit to Florida since 2011, when Brad Beal pledged to the Gators. Chris Walker and Kasey Hill were both five-star prospects in the class of 2013, but each was an in-state kid. Prior to Beal, Tennessee native Corey Brewer in 2004 was the last out-of-state five-star prospect.

    YES! Huge get. Billy Donovan is a wizard. Looks like we're going to be solid again after Wilbekin, Young, and Yeguete leave.

    Based on pure potential, new Florida commit Devin Robinson could be a top 10 player in the class of 2014

    I thought with a half full O'Dome and no midnight madness we couldn't get big recruits anymore? Billy D strikes again! Nice one!

    Agreed. But then again, in 201 the Mayans were dominating basketball and they were pretty short. Someone as tall as Robinson would probably be the unanimous #1

    Snicker.

    Big get, and some great, great work by Billy to make up what seemed like an insurmountable deficit not long ago. Robinson still has to add some weight (at 6'8, 169 pounds, I assume Robinson disappears when he turns sideways), but that'll come.
