New FIU men's hoop coach Anthony Evans wasted no time trying to get more size onto the roster, signing 6-10 Daniel Robinson to a letter of intent.
Robinson spent the 2012-13 season across the state at the IMG Academy after going to high school at Chesapeake (Va.) Atlantic Shores Christian. As a senior, he averaged only 9.3 points per game, but 8.4 rebounds and 3.3 blocks.
FIU lacked size and a fearsome defensive presence inside last season. If teams could avoid FIU's thievery in the backcourt and on the perimeter, open or easy shots often resulted. The Panthers ranked 253rd in blocked shots per game and 279th in field goal percentage defense. Clearly, Robinson's meant to address some of that.
