She looks like a good player!

But then again so did T.Veitenheimer in her highlights, and we got...well what we got. It's so hard to tell if a player is going to be productive at the next level based on highlight reels like this one. She had absolutely no defense guarding her, I can see that much. I wonder if she will be ranked at some point? How tall? I'm sure she's definitely the type of player SC thinks will turn around her program!

She's not in the Hoopgurlz top 60 for 2020 at this point/as a junior after playing with Oklahoma Shock, and #60 is a three star. I'm sure she can play somewhere, but it's not what is needed at this point, however, it just might be who SC signs or someone like her...she loves a great shooter that lacks other necessary skills to compete effectively in the conference. Heck, I'm probably good for 50% if no one is guarding me.

From inside 3' perhaps. I get your jest. But I am serious.

After a good warmup...3's...I'm good for about 20%. But it ain't going to do a bit of good for OU. #noeligibility

PS...and if I had some NCAA eligibility, there is no way I could play for SC; especially the given state of the program. How do you run it all the way down into the ground after great success?

Wait and watch the 2019-2020 and 2020-2021 seasons and you will have a better explanation to answer your question.

She currently has nine offers: Oklahoma State, Tulsa, Oral Roberts, Missouri-Kansas City, Wichita State, Washington State, Santa Clara, Texas-San Antonio and Texas-Arlington.
I guess OSU wants another Jaden Hobbs. I would put Hobbs in the category of "a great shooter that lacks other necessary skills to compete effectively in the conference."

By getting damn lucky you signed 3 Oklahoma kids in Shannon Selmon, LaNeishea Caufield and Caton Hill while Stacy Dales was in school. I think Llanusa is the only other Oklahoma player on par with Caufield and Hill that Sherri has signed since.

The Paris twins found OU not OU found the Paris twins. The Paris twins drew Alajuwon and A. Thompson to Norman and Sherri found DRob. Not much self initiated recruiting success ever by Sherri and staff just a few good breaks at key times. JMHO.

Sometimes it pays to be lucky rather than good.

VERY lucky. However, SC did not "find" DRob. She was basically heading to Cal when AParis told the coaches about her. SC went to see her in Oregon in July at the big tournament there and mentioned she was "quick" in one of the articles. SC rushed a home visit then DRob visited OU and said that she was amazed by the many fans and game atmosphere. I remember reading this stuff in several articles. Can't remember if it was San Francisco/San Jose newspapers or Oklahoma.

Again...how is it that they did not know about DRob until the twins told them to check her out? She should have been on their list once they opened the Cali door with the twins.

Then she should get to choosing and committing. She's a dime a dozen...and not what OU needs...unless her best friend is a 6'5" post player that can't imagine them not attending college together.

Don't have time to find all of the articles again, but here are a few. Again, the staff didn't even have her on the radar when they were looking for guards. That's a flaw in recruiting strategies. Any player from CA in the top 100 in the country should have been on their list to recruit; at least know who they are considering they already had AOlajuwon from southern CA and the twins from northern CA.

Robinson was an alternate on the USA U18 World Championships team this past summer. She was one of the Paris twins favorite players during their days as prepsters in Northern California and someone that Ashley Paris advised the coaching staff to recruit.

http://www.soonersports.com/ViewArti...CLID=208388093


Then at a tournament only a couple months before signing day, Robinson met Sooner coach Sherri Coale for the first time.

One thing led to another.

"We’re going where?” Robinson’s mother, Denise, asked when her daughter said they were taking an official visit to OU.

Robinson took a couple of other official visits after going to Norman, but eventually she canceled her last two visits and committed to the Sooners.

Does anyone know how OU let this player get out of state? Even tho she’s not super big, she could have made a impact for the sooners and possibly a starter at the 5.

Seeing things like this make me hope that SC & co. Are really out there looking, but pessimistic that they will find anyone productive as they'll all be taken. Let's hope for the best I suppose. Should have been looking all throughout the season when it was glaringly evident what our primary weakness was, but SC knows best, right?
