ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- University of Michigan head baseball coach Rich Maloney announced today (Monday, Jan. 18) that outfielder Adam Robinson (Northbrook, Ill./Glenbrook North) will continue his academic and athletic career at the University of Michigan beginning next fall.
Robinson joins four early signees in the 2010 class, including RHP Alex Lakatos (Grand Rapids, Mich./Forest Hills Central), OF Michael O'Neill (Powell, Ohio/Olentangy Liberty), IF Mark Bass (Pace, Fla./Pace) and RHP Brett Winger (Orlando, Fla./Olympia).
"Adam is a very gritty player with great speed and some pop in his bat," said Maloney. "He is a very competitive athlete and we are excited to have him join our family and compete with us."
Robinson has earned two varsity letters for head coach Barry Ruppert heading into his senior season at Glenbrook North. As a junior, Robinson earned All-Central Suburban League honors while bringing his career stolen base total to more than 40 in two seasons. As a member of the Top Tier 17U summer team, Robinson helped the squad to the CABA World Series title and a top-10 finish at the WWBA National Championships.
The Wolverines open their 2010 season Feb. 19-21 at the Texas Tech Tournament, facing Jacksonville State and Texas Tech, and open the home season at the Wilpon Baseball Complex, home of historic Ray Fisher Stadium, against IPFW on March 26.
