Virginia Tech has been sending out their fair share of new offers during the summer basketball travel circuit season including one recently to Texas native and four-star SF Micah Robinson who plays at in-state Oak Hill Academy.

Robinson had this to say about his reaction to receiving a VT offer.

"Excited! I had originally talked to coach (J.D.) Byers a while ago and they had been coming out to all our games during the live period, so I was really waiting for this one!" Robinson said.

He received the offer during a conversation with head coach Mike Young adding this on how that conversation was as a whole.

"it was great! Coach was pretty much saying that they’ve watched a lot of game film of me on top of the games they came out to see, and they really like my game and think I could be a key piece to what they’re trying to build!" Robinson said.

This offer didn't come out of nowhere as Robinson has been receiving interest from the Hokies for a little while.

"I would say a good amount! I had first spoken with coach (Kevin) Glitner a few months ago back during school, then a few days after that I started staying in contact with coach Byers. Between coach Byers and coach Young, I would hear from them weekly!" Rohinson said.

This offer shouldn't come as a surprise as Robinson averaged 15 points, 7 rebounds, and 3 assists per game while shooting 45% from three-point range in his first season at Oak Hill. Given his size at around 6'6'' and versatility, Robinson seems like a very good fit in what the Hokies look for on the wing.

So what has made Robinson a four-star recruit? He had this to say about the strengths and weaknesses of his game.

"I would say I'm a very versatile player who can score in multiple different ways, and guard multiple positions. My size and athleticism along with my guard skills allowing me to create mismatches on the offensive end, and also allowing me to guard both smaller and bigger guys. I really wouldn’t call it a weakness, but one part of my game that I’m working on showcasing is my ability to make jumpshots off the dribble whether it being mid-range or from three," Robinson said.

Looking ahead, Robinson told us that he is looking to take a visit to Virginia Tech. He also has a visit to TCU this weekend and has been talking with Oklahoma, LSU, and Mississippi State about setting up visits to those schools.

So with all that said, how does this VT offer impact his recruitment and where VT stands in it?

"It means a lot towards my recruitment! I’ve been thinking about shortening my list of schools in the next few months, so it means a lot knowing that they truly believe in my talents," Robinson said.
