Michigan basketball signee Glenn Robinson III on verge of five-star status
The majority of the Michigan basketball program's recruiting buzz surrounding the 2012 class has focused on power forward Mitch McGary.
And, rightfully so, as McGary is rated as a five-star prospect by two scouting services.
But he may soon have company.
On Sunday, Rivals.com listed 2012 Michigan signee Glenn Robinson III as the No. 1 player on a list of recruits most likely "to move up the Rivals150."
"The 6-foot-7 wing was knocking on the door of five-star status coming out of the summer," Rivals wrote. "This winter, he appears to be well on his way to busting that door down. He has size, a complete game and high level athleticism that all translates at a high level.
"His impact at Michigan should be immediate and sizable."
Robinson III, the son of former Purdue and NBA star Glenn Robinson, is rated as a four-star prospect by Rivals.com and the 34th-best prospect in America.
McGary dipped in both ESPN and Scout.com's prospect rankings, falling to four-star status in ESPN's case, and sits as the No. 3 overall prospect in America, per Rivals.
Rivals rates Michigan's third 2012 signee, Canadian-born shooting guard Nik Stauskas, as a four-star prospect and the 79th-best player in the country.
