Will be team MVP over McGary, write it down
Michigan assistant Jeff Meyer related the latest of Robinson’s can-you-believe-it feats on Tuesday morning. During an interview with WTKA's Michigan Insider, Meyer explained that U-M players’ vertical leaps are measured on a Vertec. The apparatus is a straight pole with movable tabs on one side. Players jump alongside the pole, reaching for the highest tab they can touch. The highest tab moved accounts for the individual’s vertical leap.
Michigan’s Vertec measures up to 12 feet, 3 inches.
Michigan needs a new Vertec.
“We’ve not had anybody inside our program get all 12 feet, 3 inches -- that was until Glenn Robinson,” Meyer said.
Robinson stands 6-feet, 6-inches tall. He has an expansive wingspan, but is not a pterodactyl. He’s always had a lengthy reach and shake-your-head leaping ability (just ask Minnesota). This latest feat, though -- reaching 12-foot-3 on the Vertec -- is a product of Robinson’s offseason work.
