HATTIESBURG, Miss. -
Southern Miss men's basketball coach Larry Eustachy announced today the signing of Brooklyn, N.Y., product Lindsey Robinson to a national letter of intent for the 2007-08 academic year.
Robinson, the 6-foot-9, 225-pound power forward, attended God's Academy this past season in Irving, Texas, for coach Tim Miller. He averaged 19 points per contest. The Ambassadors finished fourth in the National Association of Christian Athletes national tournament and ended the year with a 24-2 record.
"Lindsey is a big 6-foot-9 player that is still growing," Eustachy said. "He can post up, put the ball on the floor and score inside and has a tremendous upside for us. He is going to be good player in the future for Southern Miss."
Robinson is the fourth signee for the Golden Eagles this spring, joining 6-foot-4 Kevin Branch from LaPlace, La. (Washington-Marion HS in Lake Charles, La.), 6-foot R.L. Horton from Jackson, Miss. (Lanier HS), 6-foot-8 Brandon Cooks from Thibodaux, La. (Thibodaux HS/Genesis One Christian School). In the fall, the Golden Eagles signed 6-foot-8 Maurice Bolden from Jackson, Miss. (Wingfield HS), as well as adding 7-foot Gustavo Lino from Sao Paulo, Brazil (Universidade Anhmebi Morumbi), who enrolled during the spring semester.
