Robinson is a 6-foot-7 forward and received early acceptance to Duke this month. He will be a preferred walk-on next season.

"I'm happy to get early decision from Duke since it is so amazing academically," Justin told Rowe via text. "It's been a long time dream for me. The opportunity to be a preferred walk-on is exciting and I'm looking forward to being a part of the Duke Basketball tradition."
