Michigan Collecting Sons of Former NBA Stars

by September 16, 2010

Michigan just received a verbal commitment from junior Glenn Robinson III (son of the Big Dog). When Robinson matriculates in 2012, the Michigan roster should include Jordan Dumars (son of Joe), Jon Horford (son of Tito) and Tim Hardaway Jr. From the NWI Times: “Glenn Robinson III was in Ann Arbor, Mich., recently visiting the University of Michigan, where he met Tim Hardaway Jr., a freshman in the Wolverines’ program. ‘We played some games of bags,’ Robinson said. ‘It was a lot of fun.’ The two have a lot in common. Both share the names of their fathers, who were stars in college and the NBA. And now that Robinson, a 6-foot-6 junior at Lake Central, has verbally committed to play at Michigan, they will have even more in common. […] The NBA fit in Ann Arbor doesn’t end with Robinson and Hardaway. Michigan also has sophomore guard Jordan Dumars (Joe Dumars) and freshman forward Jon Horford (Tito Horford) to round out their ‘sons of the NBA’ roster.”
