I was going through Michigan's Basketball recruiting classes and I noticed a name Robin Benzing. I have no idea who he is, just that he commited to Michigan in the class of 08. He would be a 6-10 Soph PF right now. I would love to have a big coming off the bench right now. So what happened to him?
What happened to Robin Benzing
thats the german kid that couldn't get past some NCAA issues about him playing for a pro team in germany IIRC...
He couldn't get eligible because he played semi-pro ball in Germany.
Interesting. A German guy who played ball for Iowa State this year up and left his team Tuesday because he was offered a lucrative German deal. His teammates are complaining about "team" and "loyalty."
I would submit that if most of them had no NBA potential and a six-figure contract available in their home country, they would follow the EUROS as well.
Not to mention that in Europe, the notion of keeping your amateur status until age 20-22 is unheard of. Most European athletes turn pro around age 16, or even earlier.
Averaging 12 pts, 2 rebs per game playing 6th man on a losing team; also has been mentioned as outside draft possibilty for an international player; hitting 31% of 3's at 6'11, not bad
