Ex-NBA forward Glenn Robinson can be proud of his son…

glenn-robinsonEx-NBA All-Star forward Glenn “Big Dog” Robinson was a two-time NBA All-Star, and averaged over 20 points per game in 8 of his 10 NBA seasons.

He averaged career high 23.4 ppg for the Milwaukee Bucks during the 1997-98 seasons.

Robinson holds career averages of 20.7 ppg, 6.1 rpg in 36.8 minutes of playing time. He appeared in 688 NBA games, started in 668 of them.

Today, Robinson can be proud of his son – there are good reasons for it.

Being a top-notch athlete runs in 3-star defensive end Gelen Robinson’s family, and teams in the Big Ten are starting to notice.

Gelen, Glenn Robinson’s son, is that athlete. He’s also the brother of current University of Michigan basketball player Glenn Robinson III. GRIII checks in at 6’6”, 210 pounds and is currently scoring 10.9 points per game to go along with 5.5 rebounds and 1.2 assists as a freshman.

It’s rather obvious that the defensive end recruit has a great pedigree, so the expectations for his career should be on par.

He’s 6’2”, 232 pounds and is ranked as the No. 23 strong-side defensive end in the country and the No. 6 recruit from the state of Indiana, both according to the 247Sports Composite Rankings.

Jake Brown of GoldandBlack.com is reporting that Robinson recently took a visit to Purdue to watch the Boilermakers take on his brother and the Michigan Wolverines in basketball.

He has already picked up an offer from Purdue as a linebacker, and according to Brown, a few other Big Ten programs have shown interest.

As of right now, Robinson’s three offers are from Illinois, Minnesota and Purdue, though he does have an interest (247Sports) in Arizona, Indiana, Michigan and Notre Dame but has not yet picked up offers from those programs.
