Jeremiah Robinson-Earl’s Career Stats
Coming off a freshman season where he averaged 10.5 points/9.4 rebounds per game and captured Big East Freshman of the Year honors, Jeremiah Robinson-Earl was tasked this year with shouldering a lot of load for a Villanova offense prone to scoring droughts.
This season, the 6’9 sophomore averaged 15.7 points and an impressive 8.5 rebounds per game this season - including a number of monstrous performances on the road. Robinson-Earl tallied 19 points in a major win at Texas and 23 points against a desperate Seton Hall team in late January.

Jeremiah Robinson-Earl finished this season ranked top-10 in the Big East in %min and top-10 in %shots. His final FG% of 49% was the best on the team and JRE wrapped up the year as Villanova’s leader in average scoring, rebounding, steals, and assists - a true Renaissance man.
Despite his relatively short stay on the Main Line, Jeremiah Robinson-Earl will be fondly remembered by Villanova fans for his poise, maturity, and ridiculous post-game. On a roster (and in a program) more or less defined by its guards, Robinson-Earl carved out an invaluable role with his consistency, creativity, and versatility under the basket. His court vision and passing ability provided the Villanova offense with a vital inside/outside option and his mid-range game and footwork kept his defenders on skates.
As expected, Robinson-Earl recently announced that he would be leaving Villanova to pursue an NBA career. There is still a lot of volatility in the NBA draft predictions floating around but Jeremiah Robinson-Earl likely projects to be a second round pick with an outside shot of being scooped up late in the first. He is indisputably undersized for the NBA - especially as a stretch five - but has shown flashes from outside. If he can develop a little more consistency from deep (he finished the year shooting 28% on 82 attempts), he could fill a nice role on a team looking for a versatile two-way player.
