Clemson, SC – Clemson Head Coach Larry Shyatt has announced the signing of the first member of his 2002 freshman class. On Wednesday, the first day of the early signing period, 6-2 guard Shawan Robinson signed a national letter of intent with the Clemson program.

Robinson attends Leesville Road High School in Raleigh and is considered one of the top players in North Carolina and a top 100 player nationally. He averaged 16 points, five rebounds, five assists and three steals per game last year.

Robinson is ranked in the top 100 in the nation by All-Star Sports and by Hoop Scoop. A first-team all-conference player the last two years, he combined with current Florida State freshman Anthony Richardson to lead Leesville Road to the state championship game last year. His father, Darryl Robinson, is the Leesville Road High School Head Coach.

“Shawan will be a tremendous asset to Clemson University and our basketball program,” said Shyatt. “He comes to us from a wonderful family and is an excellent student. You can tell he is the son of a coach. He is an excellent combo guard who will help us immediately as a primary ball handler and deep shooter.”
