Glenn Alan Robinson III (born January 8, 1994) is an American basketball player who played college basketball for the Michigan Wolverines for two years ending with the 2013–14 team. He was an All-State high school basketball player for Lake Central High School in Indiana. He is the son of Glenn Robinson, the 1994 NBA first overall draft pick.
In high school, he committed to the University of Michigan before his junior season while he was still a three-star prospect ranked outside of the top 100 in the national class of 2012, according to Rivals.com. By the end of his high school career, he was a five-star top 20 prospect in the national class, according to some, including Rivals and ESPN.com. Nonetheless, he was overlooked by many prestigious honors selectors, but he did appear in some national All-American contests. Subsequently, he began his college career at Michigan where he was an immediate starter for the 2012–13 team. Following the 2012–13 Big Ten season he was recognized as an honorable mention All-conference selection and All-freshman honoree by the coaches. He was selected to the Kyle Macy Freshman All-American Team. He was again recognized as an honorable mention All-conference selection following the 2013–14 Big Ten season.
Robinson was born, weighing 3 pounds 4 ounces (1.5 kg), three months premature to his single Purdue University freshman mother, Shantelle Clay, at Methodist Hospital in Gary, Indiana. He spent his first two months in an incubator (with a miniature basketball), until he was about 6 pounds (2.7 kg). By age three he was a participant in the Hammond, Indiana YMCA children's basketball league. Robinson attended Grimmer Middle School prior to attending Lake Central High School. He stood at 5 feet 6 inches (1.68 m) in seventh grade and 6 feet 1 inch (1.85 m) two years later as a freshman. Robinson was nearly 6 feet 4 inches (1.93 m) during his sophomore season and stood at over 6 feet 5.5 inches (1.97 m) as a junior.
As a freshman, he played junior varsity for Lake Central and once made a game-winning half-court shot. That year he became obsessed with his dream of dunking and even bought special shoes and wore ankle weights to help his dream come true. At the time, his father lived in Atlanta and Robinson grew up with his mother, Shantelle Clay-Irving and younger brother Gelen. During the summer between his freshman and sophomore season, he came under the wing of two substitute father figures: Dave Milausnic, Lake Central Varsity Basketball head coach, and Wayne Brumm, AAU SYF Players under-17 coach. Milausnic convinced Robinson to come to the gym for early morning workouts, often waking Robinson at his home. Brumm, who would eventually continue to mentor Robinson as a collegian, advised Robinson to hire a personal trainer named Andrew Wallen, who helped Robinson augment his vertical leap. He also helped Robinson bulk up from 167 pounds (75.75 kg) prior to his sophomore year to 210 pounds (95.25 kg) in two years. Growing up, Robinson has not embodied the tough vocal demeanor that his father had and the his brother developed. His passive nature has shown itself in all facets of Robinson's life including his basketball game.
As a sophomore, he was a first-team All-area selection after leading Lake Central in scoring. In early 2010, he received his first scholarship offer from Valparaiso. On September 14, 2010, Robinson became the first verbal commitment to the Michigan Wolverines men's basketball class of 2012. At the time, he had scholarship offers from Colorado, Valparaiso, Missouri State, IUPUI and Indiana State, and Rivals.com rated him as the 118th best player in the class of 2012. He committed early to relieve himself of recruiting pressures and to focus on improving his skills. On February 5, 2011, Robinson posted his career-high 39 points against East Chicago Central High School on 14-for-19 shooting. This was his first high school game that his father attended. In the 2011 Indiana sectional against Munster High School, Robinson scored 31 points in an overtime 54–53 loss, but missed a free throw in the final seconds.
In the spring following his junior season, he was ranked 90th by Scout.com, but he was ranked 39th after the summer before his senior year. He and Mitch McGary had been friends for years prior to their Michigan affiliation. By the time McGary committed to Michigan in November 2011, Robinson had moved up to the national number 34 player ranking according to Rivals.com. The pair along with Nik Stauskas gave Michigan a consensus top 10 entering class for its 2012 class. McGary and Robinson decided to be Michigan roommates. Robinson visited Michigan along with future teammate Stauskas to see the 61–56 New Year's Day 2012 victory by the 2011–12 Wolverines team over Minnesota. Robinson blossomed as a senior in 2012. In January 2012, he led Lake Central to a 71–47 win over North Carolina-bound J. P. Tokoto's Menomonee Falls High School at the Brandon Jennings Invitational in Milwaukee. Robinson earned Most Valuable Player (MVP) honors with 33 points while Tokoto posted 28. As the season progressed, Robinson (and Stauskas) improved in the national player ratings to offset McGary's slide and maintain a top-rated class. Later that season, Robinson led Lake Central to its first sectional championship since 1997 with a 24 point performance in the team's 63–37 victory over Highland High School. The road to the sectional title included a rematch 66–56 victory against Munster. Robinson was an honorable mention Associated Press All-state selection.
Following the season, Robinson was invited to participate in the four-team All-American Championship along with future teammate McGary in New Orleans on April 1, 2012. He posted 16 points and 4 rebounds to earn the ESPNHS All-American Championship game MVP. He was named the 2012 Post-Tribune Boys basketball player of the year. By the end of his senior year, Robinson was considered a five-star player by Rivals.com. Robinson was an honor roll student at Lake Central. Robinson placed fourth in the Indiana Mr. Basketball voting behind Gary Harris, Yogi Ferrell and Kellen Dunham. Harris and Ferrell, who signed with Big Ten Conference rivals (Michigan State and Indiana, respectively), were both selected as participants in the McDonald's All-American Game. Robinson was a second team Associated Press All-state selection. Although, he finished as the highest rated Indiana basketball player according to Rivals.com and the Indiana Basketball News state MVP, he was not a McDonalds selectee. He was runner up in the BallIsLife All-American Game dunk competition and participated in the BallIsLife All-American Game on April 7. With his late rise in the rankings, he completed his run from three-star prospect to five-star prospect and surpassed McGary to become Michigan's highest rated prospect according to some rankings. His late rise offset a late fall by McGary and enabled Michigan to retain its top ten class status. Robinson was selected as a member of the Indiana All-Stars and performed well on offense and defense against the Kentucky All-Stars.

Robinson began his Michigan career in the starting lineup on November 9. During Robinson's freshman year, when Michigan played man-to-man defense, Robinson usually played against opposing power forwards, while he was a fastbreak finisher on offense who took advantage of mismatches in the half court set. In his first career game, Robinson nearly posted a double-double with ten points and eight rebounds in a 100–62 victory against Slippery Rock. In his second game, Robinson had 21 points, while making his first eight field goals in a 91–54 victory against the IUPUI Jaguars on November 12. On November 23, he posted 12 rebounds in the championship game victory in the NIT Season Tip-Off tournament against Kansas State. With Tim Hardaway, Jr. (and Jon Horford) sidelined due to injury on December 29 against Central Michigan, Robinson posted his second career 20-point game.
On January 3, contributed 10 points against Northwestern in the 2012–13 Big Ten Conference men's basketball season opener. On January 6, Robinson posted 20 points and 10 rebounds against Iowa, to earn his first career double-double. He was the first Michigan freshman to post at least 20 points and 10 rebounds in a game since LaVell Blanchard did so three times for the 1999–2000 Michigan Wolverines men's basketball team. On January 7, he earned recognition as Big Ten Conference Freshman of the Week. Michigan defeated Purdue 68–53 on January 24 and Illinois 74–60 on January 27. This gave Michigan the first 19–1 record in school history. For the week, Robinson earned his second Big Ten Freshman of the week award on January 28 due to a pair of 12-point performances on 71.4% shooting in which he averaged 8 rebounds. That same day, Michigan was ranked number one in the AP Poll with 51 of the 65 first place votes. It marked the first time Michigan ranked atop the AP Poll since the Fab Five 1992–93 team did so on December 5, 1992. On January 31, Robinson and Stauskas were named to the Wayman Tisdale Award (USBWA National Freshman of the Year) top 12 midseason list. On February 17 against Penn State, Robinson tied his career-high point total of 21 and posted his second double-double by adding 10 rebounds. Robinson made a career-high 9 free throws on 11 attempts and had a career-best field goal day going 6-for-6, surpassing an earlier 4-for-4 game. He was a 2012–13 Big Ten Conference all-freshman and honorable mention all-conference selection by the coaches. Although early in the season, Robinson's defender often left Robinson to help defend Trey Burke in the pick and roll, by February coaches adjusted to diminish Robinson's ability to serve as an outlet for jump shots and dunks and Michigan finished the month of February with a 3–4 record.
Prior to the 2013 NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Tournament, Jeff Goodman of CBSSports.com named Michigan with Robinson first among tournament teams in terms of having the most future NBA talent on its roster (in the absence of Kentucky who was relegated to the 2013 National Invitation Tournament). As a number four seed, Michigan defeated its first NCAA tournament opponent, South Dakota State, 71–56. Michigan  Robinson tied his career-high again with 21 points. The 27th victory of the season gave the team its most wins in 20 years and matched head coach John Beilein's career high. Michigan had held a narrow 30–26 lead at the half, but Robinson made two 3-pointers to open the second half. He scored Michigan's first eleven second half points as South Dakota only made one field goal in that time. In the first two tournament games against South Dakota State and VCU, Robinson shot a combined 15-for-19. On March 29 against Kansas, Robinson contributed 13 points and 8 rebounds, bringing his averages in the first three tournament games to 16 points and 7.7 rebounds. During the final media timeout with 3:47 to play and Michigan trailing by 10 points, Robinson became the vocal leader during the team huddle for the first time as a Wolverine reminding his teammates to focus on their defense. With Michigan down by 5 points, he scooped a loose ball for an offensive rebound and made a reverse layup following a Tim Hardaway, Jr. missed three-point shot with 35 seconds remaining. It was part of a Michigan 14–4 run in the final 2:52 to force overtime in the victory. On April 1, he was one of two Big Ten players (Harris) named to the 21-man 2013 Kyle Macy Freshman All-America team. Michigan advanced to the April 8 national championship game where the team lost to Louisville by an 82–76 margin despite 12 points from Robinson.
2013 NBA Draft
On April 9 before boarding the airplane to return from the NCAA Final Four, Beilein met with Trey Burke, Hardaway, Robinson and McGary to direct them to seek the advice of the NBA advisory committee. The draft board had until April 15 to develop each individual report and the players had until April 28 to enter the draft. On April 12, ESPN journalist Myron Medcalf described Robinson's likelihood of entering the draft as "borderline," noting it was a tough choice between becoming a professional player and being the Big Man on Campus. Several sources regarded him as a likely first round draft choice in the NBA Draft, so there was much speculation about him entering his name into the draft. On April 18, he and McGary held a joint press conference to announce that they would not enter the draft. This came after Burke and Hardaway entered the draft on the 14th and 17th, respectively. Robinson was advised by his mother, his maternal grandmother Carolyn Crawford and Brumm, who had coached NBA draftees Robbie Hummel, E'Twaun Moore and Luke Harangody, not to enter the draft.
Robinson declined an invitation to try out for the USA Basketball team that competed at the 2013 FIBA Under-19 World Championship, opting instead to attend a Nike Skills Academy for wing players featuring Kevin Durant and the LeBron James Skills Academy. While training, he became the first player in the history of Michigan basketball to max out the 12-foot-3-inch (3.73 m) Vertec apparatus that is used to measure vertical leap. As a sophomore, he was expected to move from power forward assignments to the small forward role on defense and more of a leader and primary option on offense. In June 2013, Sporting News' Mike DeCourcy named Robinson the fourth best small forward for the upcoming season.
On September 6, Sporting News named Robinson the 5th best overall player in the Big Ten Conference. Later that month, he was selected as an honorable mention preseason All-Americans by USA Today. Lindy's Sports selected Robinson as the best NBA prospect in the Big Ten and 2nd best small forward in the country. They also named him to the preseason All-Big Ten team along with Aaron Craft, Keith Appling, Gary Harris and Adreian Payne. Athlon Sports selected Robinson to the preseason All-Big Ten second team. Robinson was a preseason All-Big Ten selection in both the official media poll released by the Big Ten Conference and the unofficial media poll released by the Big Ten Network. Robinson was on the 50-man Naismith Award and Wooden Award preseason watchlists.
On November 8, Robinson tied career highs with 4 assists and 3 steals against UMass Lowell on a night when he also had 15 points and 7 rebounds. On November 13, Robinson earned his first Sports Illustrated cover as part of a four-version set of regional covers depicting college basketball's greatest rivalries on the College Basketball Preview Issue. Robinson and Michigan State Spartans men's basketball player Gary Harris represented the Michigan–Michigan State basketball rivalry on one of the four regional versions. Robinson contributed a career-high 4 steals against Iowa State on November 17. Robinson again tied his career high with 4 assists on November 21 against Long Beach State in the first round of the Puerto Rico Tip-Off. On December 14, Robinson tallied 20 points on 8–9 field goal shooting and 4 rebounds against (#1/#1) Arizona in a 72–70 loss. On December 28, against Holy Cross Robinson posted a career high with 23 points.
In the January 2 Big Ten Conference opener against Minnesota, Robinson set a career high with 4 blocks despite missing the final 17:24 of the game with a leg injury. The injury was to his left ankle. On January 22, against (#10) Iowa Robinson scored 14 points and tied his career high with 9 rebounds, helping Michigan defeated consecutive ranked opponents for the first time since the 1996–97 team. Robinson tied his career high with 23 points against Nebraska on February 5 as the team posted its largest conference game margin of victory since defeating Indiana 112-64 on February 22, 1998. On February 26, Robinson contributed a team-high 17 points including a game-winning overtime buzzer beater against his father's alma mater Purdue to help the team overcome its largest deficit of the season (19). On March 8, Robinson had his fourth 20-point game of the season to help Michigan close out its season with a season-ending 84–80 victory over Indiana. His 20 points included a tie-breaking 3-pointer with 1:10 remaining. Following the regular season, he was named an honorable mention All-Big Ten selection by both the coaches and the media.
Michigan played its first two games of the 2014 NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Tournament at the BMO Harris Bradley Center, which was the home arena for Robinson's father, Glenn Robinson for most of his NBA career as a member of the Milwaukee Bucks. In the two games at the Bradley Center against Wofford and Texas, Robinson scored 14 points in each game and averaged 6 rebounds. In the Sweet Sixteen round, he opposed his father's former Purdue roommate and Tennessee head coach Cuonzo Martin. Robinson scored 13 points as Michigan again advanced in the tournament. The 2013–14 team was eliminated in the elite eight round of the 2014 NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Tournament by Kentucky.
2014 NBA Draft
Following the season, Robinson, who had slipped from a projected 2013 first round selection to a projected high 2014 second round selection, stated that he had not thought about entering the draft as much during the season as he had the year before. He said he would make a decision in time. Robinson and teammates McGary and Stauskas all submitted evaluation requests to the NBA Undergraduate Advisory Committee which must respond by April 14, giving the players until April 27 to make themselves eligible for the draft if they so choose. Some in the press felt he should return to gain experience and work on his game, although some thought he still might be a first round selection. On April 14, Jake Fischer of the Boston Globe claimed to have a source that confirmed Robinson had hired an agent and would enter the draft. On April 15, Robinson, in a joint press conference with Stauskas on the Big Ten Network, announced that he was declaring himself eligible for the 2014 NBA draft. During his two years with Michigan, the school enjoyed its winningest two-year stretch in school history marked by a total of 59 wins. Of Michigan's prior 14 early NBA draft entrants, 10 were selected in the first round and 3 in the second.
He is the son of Shantelle Clay (also known as Shantelle Clay-Irving) and Glenn Robinson, who was Indiana Mr. Basketball, Collegiate national player of the year, NBA All-Star, NBA first overall draft pick, NBA Finals champion, and an eleven-year NBA veteran. Robinson III's nickname is "Trey". His maternal grandmother's name is Carolyn Crawford.
His younger brother, Gelen (class of 2014), is the 2013 Indiana High School Athletic Association (IHSAA) 220-pound (100 kg) wrestling champion, 2013 IHSAA shot put runner-up, 2013 IHSAA discus runner-up, 2013 threepeat Post-Tribune Football Defensive Player of the Year and the 2012–13 Times of Northwest Indiana Athlete of the Year. Gelen verbally committed to the Purdue Boilermakers football team.
