Glenn Alan Robinson III born January 8, 1994 is an American college basketball player for the Michigan Wolverines who is playing his sophomore season for the 2013–14 team. He was an All-State high school basketball player for Lake Central High School in Indiana. He is the son of Glenn Robinson, the 1994 NBA first overall draft pick.
In high school, he committed to the University of Michigan before his junior season while he was still a three-star prospect ranked outside of the top 100 in the national class of 2012, according to Rivals.com. By the end of his high school career, he was a five-star top 20 prospect in the national class, according to some, including Rivals and ESPN.com. Nonetheless, he was overlooked by many prestigious honors selectors, but he did appear in some national All-American contests. Subsequently, he began his college career at Michigan where he was an immediate starter for the 2012–13 team. Following the 2012–13 Big Ten season he was recognized as an honorable mention All-conference selection and All-freshman honoree by the coaches. He was selected to the Kyle Macy Freshman All-American Team
Robinson was born, weighing 3 pounds 4 ounces (1.5 kg), three months premature to his single Purdue University freshman mother, Shantelle Clay, at Methodist Hospital in Gary, Indiana. He spent his first two months in an incubator (with a miniature basketball), until he was about 6 pounds (2.7 kg). By age three he was a participant in the Hammond, Indiana YMCA children's basketball league. Robinson attended Grimmer Middle School prior to attending Lake Central High School. He stood at 5 feet 6 inches (1.68 m) in seventh grade and 6 feet 1 inch (1.85 m) two years later as a freshman. Robinson was nearly 6 feet 4 inches (1.93 m) during his sophomore season and stood at over 6 feet 5.5 inches (1.97 m) as a junior.
As a freshman, he played junior varsity for Lake Central and once made a game-winning half-court shot. That year he became obsessed with his dream of dunking and even bought special shoes and wore ankle weights to help his dream come true. At the time, his father lived in Atlanta and Robinson grew up with his mother, Shantelle Clay-Irving and younger brother Gelen. During the summer between his freshman and sophomore season, he came under the wing of two substitute father figures: Dave Milausnic, Lake Central Varsity Basketball head coach, and Wayne Brumm, AAU SYF Players under-17 coach. Milausnic convinced Robinson to come to the gym for early morning workouts, often waking Robinson at his home. Brumm, who would eventually continue to mentor Robinson as a collegian, advised Robinson to hire a personal trainer named Andrew Wallen, who helped Robinson augment his vertical leap. He also helped Robinson bulk up from 167 pounds (75.75 kg) prior to his sophomore year to 210 pounds (95.25 kg) in two years. Growing up, Robinson has not embodied the tough vocal demeanor that his father had and the his brother developed. His passive nature has shown itself in all facets of Robinson's life including his basketball game.
