Stanford Basketball Program Signs Two Top Recruits
STANFORD, Calif. - Kyle Logan, a 6-foot-5 guard, and
Nick Robinson, a 6-foot-6 guard-forward, have signed national
letters of intent to play basketball at Stanford, according to
Cardinal head basketball coach Mike Montgomery.
Logan is attending Mercersburg Academy in Mercersburg, Pa,
while Robinson is attending Liberty High School in Liberty, Mo.
Logan averaged 21 points, seven rebounds and three assists per
game last year as a junior at St. Maria Goretti High School in
Hagerstown, Md. He shot 58 percent from the floor, and 85
percent from the free throw line. In one game last year, Logan
scored 35 points and dished out seven assists against Mt. St.
Joseph's High School in Baltimore. For his efforts, Logan
gained numerous post-season honors, including regional all-star
honors in the central Pennsylvania and Western-Maryland areas.
"Kyle fits our immediate needs for next year's varsity," said
Montgomery. "Kyle can play the point and off-guard, and small
forward. He has tremendous potential and gives us excellent
quickness and athletic ability."
Robinson averaged 14 points and seven rebounds per game last
year as he led his team to a 23-3 record, a conference title
and a trip to the state playoffs. A two-year starter, Robinson
gained first team all-league and all-district honors, and
second team all-metro and all-state accolades.
"Nick has great potential," said Montgomery. "He is a
tremendous young man, who will be even more mature when he
joins us after completing his Mormon mission."
Both athletes also played on the their school's soccer teams.
Logan and Robinson are also outstanding students. Logan scored
in the top five percent of some 10,000 Black Americans who
requested consideration in the 1998 Achievement Program when
they took the 1996 Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude
Test/National Merit Scholarship Qualfying Test. Robinson, a 4.0
gpa student, is a member of the National Honor Society, and
'Who's Who Among American High School Students.' Robinson,
a Mormon, will not enroll at Stanford until the year 2000 after
he completes his two-year mission.
"Stanford is a great place and wonderful opportunity to grow,"
said Robinson, who has six younger sisters. Logan said
"Stanford has a great academic and athletic reputation."
