District of Columbia State-by-State List

It’s certainly not a banner year for the District of Columbia, but not below par the typical draft output. Errol Robinson gives the area a legitimate chance for a player drafted in the top five rounds, and Georgetown should provide a solid number of late draft picks.

Both Georgetown and George Washington have done a decent job of holding their own competitively, particularly Georgetown, who has posted a 25-21 record as of May 9th. And, they have also have some underclassmen to look forward to in the next year or two.

1. ERROL ROBINSON, ss, St. John’s College Prep, Boyds
The name of the game with Robinson is athleticism. He’s a fast twitch, 5-foot-11, 175-pound athlete who first opened eyes in a big way at last summer’s PG National Showcase. He figures to add a great amount of strength as he matures, and with that strength should come additional power from the right side. His hands are quick through the zone, and he consistently produces hard line drives in batting practice. Most intriguing to scouts, however, has been his ability at shortstop. His quick transfer, above average arm strength, and high energy approach to the position has moved him up some lists this spring, as he may be one of the most pro ready defenders in the class. He’s an aggressive hitter that will need to be tweaked mechanically as a professional, but his projectable body and defensive skills could get this Ole Miss commit drafted in the 5-7 round range.
