To go along with the signing center Eric Jacobsen, ASU basketball also announced Wednesday that two more athletes from the state of Arizona signed their letters of intent: guard Calaen Robinson (Corona Del Sol) and forward Kenny Martin (Glendale Raymond S. Kellis). According to ESPN, the Sun Devils now have the second (Robinson), third (Martin) and fourth (Jacobsen) highest ranked players in the state.
Robinson (the 18th nationally ranked point guard by ESPN) averaged 18 points, four assists and four steals per game his junior year. He projects to be more of a combo guard than a pure point guard but he offers "a nice frame with broad shoulders and fairly long arms" according to ESPN.com. Robinson, a lefty, was also being pursued by BYU, Saint Mary's and others before committing to ASU back in August. The 6'2", 170 pound Chandler-native could possibly contribute early due to his impressive range.
Martin (the 35th nationally ranked power foward by ESPN) averaged 14.7 points, 13.6 rebounds and 5 blocks per game this past season. The word that most comes up in scouting reports when describing the 6'10", 210-pound scrappy big man is "versatile." He has an excellent 20-footer to go along with a well-rounded frame that allows him to fight for rebounds and put-backs. Long Beach State also offered him a scholarship but schools such as Texas were beginning to show late interest.
This is the first time Arizona State has had an all local recruiting class in over a decade.
