“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.”
Williams tops U.S. News and World Report's latest National Liberal Arts College Rankings.
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.
Williams coach Mike Maker left the school this summer to take over as head coach at Marist.
The Wolverines went 28-9 and earned a No. 2 seed in the 2014 NCAA Tournament before falling to No. 8 seed Kentucky in the Elite Eight.
I am proud to announce that I'll be transferring to the University of Michigan. Proud to be a Wolverine! #GoBlue 〽️— Duncan Robinson (@D_Bo20) August 6, 2014
