Newark Central High School’s Faith Robinson is coming off a successful AAU season with Team Sharp, thusly earning her a slew of Division I college basketball offers.
Yesterday, local St. John’s (N.Y.) Women’s basketball program tossed its hat into the ring by making Robinson an offer.
In addition to the Red Storm, the rising junior now has offers from Seton Hall, Northeastern, Monmouth, Fordham, Rider, LaSalle and Rhode Island.
The 5-foot-11 Robinson possesses a high-energy motor, and plays a tenacious defense, with a propensity to clog the paint, change the course of shots, and send the basketball into orbit when an offensive player thinks she has a chance of scoring.
Robinson’s 2021-22 season stats speak volume about her skill set. She enjoyed a terrific sophomore high school campaign, scoring 434 points, grabbing 350 rebounds, making 154 blocks and 158 steals in 25 games this past season.
The rising junior helped Central High School Blue Devils to a 16-9 record and a 9-0 mark in the SEC – Colonial division this past season.
The Red Storm posted a 12-19 overall record and went 7-12 in Big East Conference action in the 2021-22 campaign.
