RICHMOND, KY- — Cooper Robb will reunite with his former High School teammate Michael Moreno.
Thank you to Coach Hamilton and staff for extending me an offer, with that being said I am committing to EKU their program for the next step in my career! #GoBigE pic.twitter.com/AxoJze9Gi3— Cooper Robb (@CooperRobb1) March 27, 2020
Robb played under Billy Hicks at Scott County, A.W. Hamilton did as well and it looks as if the connection paid off. Having a former teammate in the starting lineup and a need to replace the departed Ty Taylor didn't hurt either.
Robb announced his decision to transfer from Charlotte last week, and chose the Colonels on Friday.
The 6'1 guard. averaged 5.0 points last season in 21.2 minutes per game for the 49ers out of the Conference USA. He shot it almost 44% from deep.
Robb saw his minutes, points, and rebounds drop in his Sophomore season. During a time that features a lot of question in terms of immediate eligibility, that is something that is unknown at this current time. It is likely, but not confirmed that the team will request a waiver.
