Glenn Farello has coached his fair share of talented guards.
During his career he has coached current NBA player Delonte West, as well as Virginia Tech standout Erick Green.
Now the Fairfax (Va.) Paul VI coach has another guard reeling in high major interest.
Stanford Robinson, a 6-foot-4 2013 combo guard, is a versatile prospect that shoots it well off the catch, can get to the rim and also create opportunities for his teammates.
“A lot of people think of him as just a scorer, but he’s a playmaker,” Farello told Scout.com.
“He’s so versatile,” he added. “He’s a fantastic defender and he’s willing to rebound. He’s one of the best rebounding guards I’ve ever coached. He’s able to do a little bit of everything.”
Robinson described himself as a scorer, but just as his coach mentioned he’s able to do much more on the court.
“I’m a scorer, but on this team we have a lot of scorers so I don’t think we have anybody that needs to score 30 points a game for us to win,” Robinson told Scout.com at the National Hoops Festival.
“ We like to share the ball and right now I’m being a facilitator and creating shots for my team, but when I need to I can score the ball,” he added.
Farello expects Robinson to continue to develop, just as his past guards have.
“A lot of [the coaches] like him because he’s a complete guard,” he said. “I think he’s going to continue to grow. I liken his development to a Delonte West or an Erick Green, who I’ve had in the past that developed the one and the two schools.”
“Stan is reminiscent of Delonte with his toughness,” he said. “Delonte was just a winner and willing to do everything like rebound, defend and take charges and Stan’s energy level is what is impressive. People see the wow plays and the scoring, but he impacts the game and makes a lot of winning plays.
Robinson already holds scholarship offers from N.C. State, Miami, Rutgers, South Florida, Virginia Tech, Xavier, Marquette, Villanova and Wake Forest.
“The recruiting process is going well,” Robinson said. “I have a lot of ACC offers and Big East.”
Over the summer Robinson took trips to Villanova, Virginia Tech, North Carolina State and Miami. He doesn’t have any other trips planned for the near future.
“It’s still early,” he said of the process. “I don’t think I’m going to commit until the beginning of the school year next year.”
Robinson, a four-star prospect, is currently rated as the No. 60 prospect in the 2013 class.
