Robinson Signs with Clemson
Clemson, SC-Clemson Head Coach Larry Shyatt has announced the signing
of the first member of his 2002 freshman class. On Wednesday, the
first day of the early signing period, 6-2 guard Shawan Robinson
signed a national letter of intent with the Clemson program.
Robinson attends Leesville Road High School in Raleigh and is
considered one of the top players in North Carolina and a top 100
player nationally. He averaged 16 points, five rebounds, five
assists and three steals per game last year.
Robinson is ranked in the top 100 in the nation by All-Star Sports
and by Hoop Scoop. A first-team all-conference player the last two
years, he combined with current Florida State freshman Anthony
Richardson to lead Leesville Road to the state championship game last
year. His father, Darryl Robinson, is the Leesville Road High School
"Shawan will be a tremendous asset to Clemson University and
our basketball program," said Shyatt. "He comes to us from a
wonderful family and is an excellent student. You can tell he is the
son of a coach.. He is an excellent combo guard who will help us
immediately as a primary ball handler and deep shooter."
