“STARTED FROM THE BOTTOM NOW ” SQUIRE ALUM WENT FROM UNKNOWN TO HOUSEHOLD NAME WITH RECENT COMMITMENT TO FLORIDA GATORS


If you are a basketball fan of college or high-school in Virginia and you don’t know who Devin Robinson is, you are probably living under a rock. He is undisputedly Virginia’s number one ranked high-school basketball player in the class of 2014, a consensus top 30 player nationally and recently committed to 2-time NCAA National Championship Coach Bill Donovan’s perennial Final -Four contender the Florida Gators. Robinson’s commitment in late October to play his college basetball in Gainesville is the most recent chapter in a journey that has seen the long 6’8 combo-forward rise from unranked and unheard during his 2011-2012 High-school basketball season to the player every major program had to watch in the summer of 2013.

Robinson Prove Squire Right

As a junior in high school, Devin Robinson was not a player with options. In fact, according to Squires Richmonddirector Tony Squire, he had none.

“The situation with Devin Robinson is, last year, as a junior in high school, he had no letters, no letters, no offers and wasn’t ranked,” Squire said. “I would just say with Devin Robinson, I think he was a diamond in the rough.” Continue...

Williams Making a Move Up

Devin Robinson

In our very first installment of Hatfield's Hoops Nuggets, we detailed a couple of sleeper prospects that would be no longer that by the end of the off-season. Well, it looks like one of those was on the money in Trinity Episcopal 6-foot-7 forward Austin Williams from the Class of 2014.A consistent '4' man that has a nice face-up game and plays with a junkyard dog mentality, Williams was up to 14 offers through the end of May. That list features Appalachian State, Boston University, Creighton, Drexel, Duquesne, Florida Atlantic, Georgia Southern, Mount St. Mary's, Murray State, Northern Arizona, Quinnipiac, Radford, Towson and Wagner.

His rise is reminiscent to a player from last year whose last name coincidentally also was Williams who played on the AAU circuit for Squires Richmond. That's Rodney Williams; the St. Christopher's forward headed to Drexel, yet no relation to Austin.

However, what the two have in common besides the same last name is a college-ready frame and a willingness to crash the boards at a relentless clip, an asset right off the bat for the next level. BY MATTHEW HATTFIELD FROM VIRGINIA PREPS

Robinson's makes rankings' biggest climb ever

Devin Robinson

Small forward Devin Robinson rose an astounding 82 spots in the rankings to No. 24. A long and slender 6-foot-8 swingman out of Christchurch (Va.) High, Robinson was a standout on the spring circuit. Regarded as a good shooter with the potential to play at a high-level school after last summer, Robinson grew three inches in the past year while adding significantly to his game and athleticism. He can create off the dribble, he shoots with range and he is a high-flying finisher with tremendous size for his position.
Robinson does need to add strength and be a bit more of an alpha dog when surrounded by other talented players, but the five-star prospect has significant potential.
Auburn, Cincinnati, Connecticut, Florida State, Georgia Tech, Notre Dame, Oklahoma State, Rutgers, USC, Virginia Tech, VCU and Xavier have offered, while Indiana, Kansas and others are expected to evaluate him this summer. Rival.com

Devin Robinson

His name: Devin Robinson, a fast-rising 6-8, 190-pound forward who plays for the Squires Richmond Foundation on the AAU circuit.

Though Robinson was a virtual unknown last winter, he's blossomed into a big-time high major prospect this spring. Robinson caught Louisville assistant Wyking Jones' attention last Saturday at the Big Shots AAU tourney. Jones brought Pitino in to see Robinson the following day and Kevin Keatts called Tony Squire, Robinson's AAU director, Thursday morning to express the Cardinals interest.

"I just got off the phone with Kevin Keatts," Squire told InsideTheVille.com Thursday morning shortly after he spoke with the UofL coach. "Rick Pitino came into the gym [Sunday] after his assistant [Wyking Jones] called him on Saturday, saw [Devin] and told the coaches, 'I like Devin Robinson and we want Devin Robinson.' Read More...

The RecruitScoop reports that Cincinnati, Auburn and Clemson, among others, were in attendance to see him on Friday at the pitjam tournament. City Legue Hoops reported that Devin shot the ball effortlessly from three, had a super soft touch in the paint, and used his wingspan to get his hands to get a ton of deflections on the defensive end. NJHoops could not have have put it better when they wrote; No matter which AAU tournament you're at, by the time that Saturday afternoon rolls around there is always at least one prospect who every coach and scout is talking about. In Pittsburgh, that player is Richmond Squires forward Devin Robinson.

Two Squires 15U 2015 players were invited this past weekend to participate in University of Virginia Elite Camp, Charles William and John Trey Pride. Both players performing very well, Charles sharp shooting and Trey driving to the basket and high energy on the court set the pace of the camp. Both players receive high reviews from the UVA coaching staff. These 2 players really made a name for themselves. Both players got a chance to play on the same team and lead their team to a undefeated record 5-0 in game play . The combination of Charles outside shooting and Trey’ relentless energy on both sides of the court, allow them to separate and shine from the other campers especially being from the class of 2015.

Darryl Smith Explodes against Miller in the VIC Conference Championship Game

Many media outlets are talking about the performance of Darryl Smith against Miller School. Some analyst say it was one of the best last two minute performances that they have seen in a while. Darryl Smith explodes for 27 points, a stat that he is capable of doing night in and out. Known for his ability to pass and lead the team through multiple assists but he is also so lethal behind the three point line and his ability to attack the basket with a thunderous dunks or a smooth pull up. Darryl a 4.0 honor student who is quiet by nature and may not always show emotion can compete against any guard in the country and that is proving. Congrats to Darryl Smith for his stellar performance.

Squires are proud of Darryl Smith and Jarod Williams for what they have accomplished this season lets go after that Division I state championship.
Stay Tuned!!!

Williams Most Valuable against DC school Springam at the Presidential Hoopfest in DC.

Squire player Jarod WIlliams is proving people wrong by having some strong performances lately at Blue Ridge School. As Blue Ridge enter state playoffs they needed standout performances in order to have momentum going into the tournament. Williams proved that as you see below the type of attention he has received at that one tournament. Squire Darryl Smith keeps the glue together with very little turnovers and a number of assists but Jarod's energy helps them be a a dynamic duo in the backcourt and should intensify as they try to win a state championship. Good luck!!

According to virginiapreps.com Blue Ridge Jarod Williams (SG) 2013 - explosive player with a lot of energy, Williams was voted the game's MVP in the Baron's 77-69 or DC school Springarn. Early in the game, Williams drained 3's as if he were shooting layups scoring 13 first half points. He was out-of-control at times when Springarn made their comeback after being down by 16 points but Williams took control penetrating inside which created opportunities inside for easy baskets. He finished with 23 points and six assists while adding eight boards, three treys and a couple of throw downs. Williams just needs to add polish to his game to become a D1 mid-major. He's a finisher in transition and he has the leaping ability, quickness, and shooting touch to be a sleeper combo guard to follow in the 2013 class.

Squires Peebles and Brown shares brotherly love but is getting done on the court during their high school season.

6'6 Sharpshooter Justin Peebles (Justin Peebles 8 three pointers, 28 points see video) adjusted to his own from a great football season to the hardwood. Peebles can light it up from the outside last year against BABC at the AAU Nationals he stroked six threes, and is still showing it in high school play, which an article is attached below. As he continue to improve on his ball handling and quickness Justin can turn himself into a major Division I prospect, however every team needs a sharpshooter that it is 6'6 and can go to the basket through traffic as you see pictured above. Brotherly love is what makes this story unique because they are not just on the same team but they live under the same roof so you can imagine the competitiveness at home. Treyvonte Brown a small scrappy point guard leaves it all on the floor backing up the Squires 16/Under team at point. Plays hard on the defensive end and offensive end, where he just brings so much energy to his team. As he develop a floater and continue to improve on innovative scoring against the giants in this season of AAU will really be plus for Brown. He is still showing that energy at Hanover HIgh School. Hopefully these two brothers will share their love on the same floor at the collegiate level, or would be even more interesting to see them face each other in the same conference.

Squire Alumni Jarius King commits to Hofstra

6'9 Jarius King narrowed it down to two UAB and Hofstra but decided to play at one of the world's most historic basketball cities the Big Apple. Squires are so proud of King one of the many many stories that we can tell who went from people saying that would never make it to playing in the CAA. Wow, he has been through a lot but we do know that his mother is smiling down from heaven to know that her boy is going to get a degree and play the sport that he loves so dearly. More to come on King as he is preparing for a career at Hofstra, and through hard work who knows what the next level maybe.

Congrats Williams named Times Dispatch Player of the Week

Hard work definitely pays off and it definitely shows when you put in the work in the classroom and hardwood will always allow you to receive positive results. Williams is a true testament to that and the Squire coaches can attest to that since the 8th grade. Williams improvement is tremendous and netting his third offer last week from the University of William and Mary, and prevousily adding Delaware University, and Boston University is a huge accomplishment. The role of point guard play of Squire Alumni Jermaine Johnson and the inside dominance of Saint Christophers have won 6 of thier last 7 games. More hardwork, strong finish to the high school season, and a great AAU season offers will be jumping out of the roof for the 2013 Williams.

Lockley a two time Group A Division 2 All-State winner is only a junior and has accomplished a lot during his two years at Middlesex High School. Very rare for a freshman to make all-state honors, but Lockley has excelled at every level. A bouncy athlete who is ranked as one of the top athletes in the state for both basketball and football is continuing to put the hard work on the hardwood. He is a very unselfish basketball player and one of the key contributors to the Squire 2013 team. Averaging over 15 points and 8 boards a game since his freshman year really tells us that there is more to come for Lockley. Highlights are coming soon.

Aganist STAB he scored 13 second half points finishing with 20 and their past victory aganist Collegiate scored another 20. Coming off the bench earlier this season has worked his way to the starting lineup a goal that he wanted to accomplish before coming into the season. Watch out Brown is beginning to erupt as one of the top freshman in state.

Tony Squire, When It All Started

May 2010



If you are playing Boy’s AAU BBall in the
Richmond (Central VA) area, did you know?
“ It Started HERE... Richmond Times Reference "


The grounded former squire Kevin Garnett has brought is “A” game to the series against the Lakers making it difficult for the Lakers to defend Celtic the team. He has come out with intensity in the past three games that show why he is a great player. Garnett is making huge contributions in many areas including averaged 18.7 points and 7.3 rebounds not to mention his contributions in assist, key steals, shots and free throws. Garnett and his teammates would like to see this series end tonight in Game six with the Lakers.

Former Richmond Squire Ray Allen breaks finals record making eight threes surpassing Kenny the jet Smith, Scottie Pippen, and himself. Ray scored 32 points in Game 2 of the NBA Finals as the Celtics won 103-94 over the Lakers on Sunday in the Lakers house. Former Squire Garnett plagued with fouls most of the game contributes key play in final minutes to hold of the Lakers late effort. It was clearly Ray's night in Game 2 of the NBA finals.

Former Squire player "Nero" commits to Georgia State.

Georgia State has picked up a couple of North Carolina junior college players, adding to what it calls “perhaps the most highly-regarded signing class in school history.” Panthers coach Rod Barnes has signed Jamar Taylor, a 6-foot-8 forward, and Mi’kyel Nero, a 6-4 guard, from Brunswick Community College in Supply, about 25 miles southwest of Wilmington. “ Jamar Taylor and Mi’kyel Nero are excellent additions to our program,” Barnes said in a statement released by the school. “Coach [Walter] Shaw runs a strong program at Brunswick, so these two young men have been well-coached and are ready to contribute at the Division I level. Nero, who will have three years of eligibility left at GSU, averaged 10.8 points a game at Brunswick last season. Taylor, who will have two years left, averaged 8.1 points and 6.7 rebounds (Summer , 2009).

Squires Richmond Floor Generals


As the 2008-2009 high school basketball season gets ready to tip off we will identify some of the Squires Richmond point guards that will attempt to lead their high school to a State Title. SQUIRES RICHMOND FLOOR GENERALSMadison “Primetime” Jones class of 2012 is a smooth, long 6’0 point guard that reminds you of that cool side of the pillow. With great vision, and exciting moves Madison Jones is certainly one the top point guards of the 2012 class. Jaylen “General” Hinton is the picture that you see when you type in the word “point guard” in Google. Jaylen ability to see the floor, and control a game is unlimited. At the same time Jaylen has the ability to knock the shot down from the outside. Erik “Game Time” Moody is the high major prospect that college coaches look for. Erik has very smooth explosive point guard with the ability to control the flow of the game. Erik helped lead the Benedictine Cadets to a state championship as a freshman. His clutch decision making and ability to shoot from the arc makes him one of the best point guard in the 2011 class. Torey “Bullet” Burston is by far the fastest point guard dribbling the basketball eyes has ever seen. Torey is an example of team leader, competitor, and warrior. The change of pace that Torey will provide to his team will give his team an advantage before the ball is tipped off. Last, but not least is Jerail “Hot Sauce” Howerton. Howerton is one of the most exciting point guards to watch. His vision is unmatched. Only 5’10, but strong as an ox, and faster than a locomotive gives him an unstoppable advantage. Jerail has explosive offensive abilities, but enjoys playing lock down defense. In, 2006 he leads his 14 & under team to place 14th in the country. “For every great army of soldiers there is a great General.”
