WPIAL Big Tyler Robbins Adds Offer from MAC Program



Team Durant shared this photo of big man Tyler Robbins who plays for Upper St. Clair basketball.

Over the weekend, one of the WPIAL’s top basketball stars added an offer from another Division One program, this time, a school in the MAC.

Robbins picked up an offer from Kent State. Coached by Rob Senderoff, the Golden Flashes have had tremendous success in his tenure. However, this past year, they finished 17-17, going .500 for the third time since he took over in 2011-12. The Golden Flashes have never had a losing season in Senderoff’s time in Kent.

Robbins now holds offers from Kent State, Duquesne, Robert Morris, Pepperdine, St. Francis, and Loyola (MD). The 6-foot-10 forward recently played well in front of college coaches at the Philly Live event in Philadelphia, playing for Upper St. Clair.

“I’ve learned some of my strengths and weaknesses by comparing myself to other players there,” Robbins told PSN about his experience playing in the EYBL this summer. “I would say my shot-blocking would be a strength, I would say interior offense, post offense. I run the floor well. Weaknesses, I would probably say handling the ball and foot speed.”

Robbins played football growing up, but quit after eighth grade. He is now fully focused on hoops, and is now fielding more and more college interest as his career moves on. While he is keeping his recruitment pretty private, he says he will make the schools public once they offer him. Robbins thinks he will visit Loyola, St. Francis, and some other schools this summer, with most visits coming after AAU season concludes.
