Each and every time Phenom Hoop Report gets to report or sees a commitment from a player we have seen over the years, it is always a fantastic day.  It is great to see players achieve their goal to play at the next level and it is such a great accomplishment for that player.

Here is the latest commitment

Player: DJ Robertson

Class: 2019
Committed to: Florida Atlantic

What the Player Said:

Q: What made FAU the place for you in the end and what all went into your decision?

Robertson: FAU felt different and the coaches are going to put trust in me to better my game and help change this program.

Q: When did you inform them of your decision?

Robertson: On my official visit

Q: What did you tell them?

Robertson: I really like the school and campus and I could see myself living here after graduation.  I would love to help change this program with the coaching staff and I want to be a part of the change.

Q: On the court, what do you hope you can bring as a player?

Robertson: I think I can bring energy and a winning attitude to the community and school.

Q: We have seen your game for quite some time but how would you describe your game?

Robertson: I would say I’m a fast pace point guard with good visions and can score in bunches but could gain a few pounds and improve more.

Last Season’s Stats:

At Athens Drive, Robertson averaged 22.8 points, 4.2 rebounds, and 3.3 assists per game for the Jaguars.

What Was Said by Phenom Hoops:

“Most shifty PG we have seen in a while. DJ has an elite handle and uses great pace to make defenders look silly. This kid puts on a show with the ball in his hands. To really contribute at the next level he will need to improve his outside shot and like most young point guards, become a more vocal leader.” – Queen City Showcase 2018

“Robertson is a score-first lead guard who, without question, is jet-fast and has a handle that allows him to get anywhere he wants on the floor. Last night he was said to be battling the flu a little bit, Robertson got into the paint almost at will.” – Jamie Shaw from NCHSAA in 2018

“There is no question, 6’1 DJ Robertson is physically gifted. He has tremendous length, athleticism, and unbelievable ball quickness. His hand speed dribbling the ball is as good as I’ve seen in quite some time, not to mention his ability to score from all three levels. In the game vs. Ravenscroft, Robertson finished with a game-high 32 points, including four 3-pointers. More importantly, he is so quick, mobile and fluid off the dribble and was constantly getting to the rim. Our records show Robertson went a perfect 11-11 from the free throw line.” – Rick Lewis at City of Oaks in 2019
