Carrollton, GA – Coach Michael Cooney has announced two additions to his 2017 UWG Wolves men’s basketball recruiting class. The duo of Glenn Robinson and Carson Culverhouse are now part of the Wolves’ program for the upcoming season.
Robinson is a 6-5, 185-pound wing player from Chamblee High School in the Atlanta area. He averaged a double-double for Chamblee a year ago: 13 points and 11 rebounds per game. He was a two-time DeKalb County Tip-Off Club Player of the Month, was a first team All-Region 5-AAAAA choice, and was chosen to the DeKalb County All-Star Team. Beyond, Robinson was twice named a team captain and MVP for the Bulldogs.
“We are very excited to have Glenn join our program,” said Cooney of his newest recruit. “He has great length, shoots the ball well, and despite his lean frame, has a nose for the ball.”
Cooney concludes, “As Glenn gets stronger and fills out, he is going to be a very excited player for us.”
Culverhouse is a product of hometown Carrollton High School. He is a 5-11 combo guard who was a standout for the Trojans’ program, helping CHS to a 19-10 record a year ago. He averaged 8.4 points and 1.8 assists a year ago./
The addition of Robinson and Culverhouse adds to an already large and impressive group of first year players joining the UWG program this season. The Wolves’ prep list of prep recruits includes high school standouts Steven Ross, Jr., a 6-1 guard from Chicago, Ill. and Deng Nhial, a 6-4 wing from Arlington, Va.
Cooney says, “I am really excited about this freshman group. To my knowledge it is the largest freshman class (at UWG) in the last 25 years. The next four-five years should be really fun to watch as this class develops and produces. These are high character kids who can play.”
UWG will enter the 2017-18 season in November looking to rebound from a disappointing 10-18 season a year ago.
