2018 Indiana Guard Commits to Robert Morris

Last night, the Robert Morris men’s basketball team added a fourth new face to their 2018 roster.

Indiana guard Cameron Wilbon (Don Bosco Prep) has given Andy Toole a verbal commitment. Wilbon received a scholarship from the Colonials in March and made his decision last night.

As we talked to Wilbon (6-foot-5, 190 pounds) this morning, he told us that getting the opportunity to play at a Division I school is a big achievement for him because of some of the adversity he’s had to overcome.

”I went to high school all four years in Indiana then did a post grad year at Don Bosco. The reason for that was an injury I had in high school (dislocated knee). I was getting recruited by a lot of schools and after that, a lot of schools stopped recruiting me,” said Wilbon.

“I think things worked out pretty good there. A lot of schools were still skeptical about it but I’m glad Robert Morris was willing to take a chance on someone that can play basketball.”

Wilbon tells me that he actually thinks he’s a better all-around player now then before the injury.

“This past year allowed me to work on some things that I needed to get better at like my jump shot which has gotten better and ball-handling,” said Wilbon.

A talent evaluator describes Wilbon as a “long athletic wing, good basketball IQ and a hard worker.”

Finally, I asked Wilbon the main reason he decided to pull the trigger on Robert Morris and end his recruitment.

“Ever since I met Coach Toole in March I got a good vibe from him. He loves my competitiveness and knows that I’m a winner. He knows that I’m a hard worker and am not lazy and can see me doing big things there.”

“I picked Robert Morris because of how they made me a priority. When some schools offer you, they might call or contact you once in a while but Robert Morris always made sure I was OK. They would text me or DM me every day and made sure I knew that I was a priority for them. You shouldn’t just go to a school to go there, you should go someplace where you know they really want you and that you can play,” said Wilbon.

“When I visited there everyone on the team made me feel welcome and my parents really loved it. All around it was just a great experience and something I wanted to be a part of.”

Wilbon joins freshman forward Elijah Kiah El and transfers Atem Bior and Josh Williams as newcomers on the Robert Morris roster.
