Villanova freshman Jeremiah Robinson-Earl has a long name and a lot of talent:
He bagged 24 points the other night in the Cats’ win over Army.
How highly does Villanova coach Jay Wright think of Robinson-Earl?
The New York Times is reporting that Wright said last week that his staff compares Robinson-Earl to the former Villanova and current Dallas Mavericks guard Jalen Brunson, only at a different position.
Right, Mr. Wright.
Robinson-Earl is 6-9 and Brunson is 6-3!
“He’s a great passer. He picks up everything really quick. He’s really committed. He eats well. He gets rest,” Wright said.
A versatile talent with a great face-up game, Robinson-Earl should flourish in the Wildcats’ flowing offensive system. He could be Villanova’s best player already.
