Williams College player considering transfer to Michigan, Davidson

Wednesday July 30th, 2014

Duncan Robinson, a forward at Williams College, is considering transferring to Michigan or Davidson, according to College Basketball Talk.

Williams is a member of the Division III New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC).

Robinson, who was contacted by several high-major conference programs after deciding to explore leaving Williams, will visit the two schools over the next week.

Returning to Williams is "still very much a possibility" for Robinson.

Williams tops U.S. News and World Report's latest National Liberal Arts College Rankings.

“I really made the decision that the only schools that were worth leaving Williams — because I value Williams so much — would be a school that competes at a really high level and one that is great academically,” Robinson said on Tuesday evening. “With that in mind, I weeded out a lot of those options and it came down to those two.”

Last season, Robinson averaged 17.1 points, 6.5 rebounds, 1.8 assists, shot 45 percent from beyond the arc and was named DIII National Rookie of the Year.

The 6-foot-7 forward helped lead the Ephs to a 28-5 record and an appearance in the DIII national championship game.
