Coo Coo Cachoo, Mr. Robinson!!!
The Seton Hall family just welcomed its newest member, 6'5 transfer Jeff Robinson from the University of Memphis. Robinson, a product of one of New Jersey's finest - St. Patrick's High School Academy - will be a critical puzzle piece (the corner?) added to the team for next year and will be playing in front of his friends and family literally a few miles away from where he grew up.
Robinson, an athletic freak of nature, will be expected to rotate in and out with sophmore sensation Jeremy Hazell and recent transfer Robert "Stix" Mitchell. While Mr. Robinson's baseball skills may not quite matchup with Joe Dimaggio's, his basketball skills should hopefully help catapult next year's Seton Hall squad into the top half of the BIG EAST.
The additions of DeAndre Kane, Jeff Robinson, Herb Pope, Keon Lawrence and Big Mel Oliver (anyone else is welcome to join... sign-up sheet is posted outside Walsh) to a team that is only losing one (super)man will force Gonzo to do something he has yet to have the luxury to do: coach a team with depth at every posiiton. We are all looking forward to seeing Mr. Robinson play next year and, dont forget, the Pirates love you more than you will know!!
