The NBA announced today the players who are expected to attend the 2021 Draft Combine, which will be held June 21-27 at Wintrust Arena in Chicago and Villanova’s Jeremiah Robinson-Earl has been included in the list of 69.

According to the release:

Players will conduct interviews with NBA teams and participate in five-on-five games, shooting and strength and agility drills June 22-25. ESPN2 (June 24) and ESPNU (June 25) will provide coverage of the five-on-five games from 3-7 p.m. ET each day.

Robinson-Earl led the Villanova Wildcats in both scoring and rebounding this past season, with 15.7 points and 8.5 rebounds per game, en route to earning a share of the Big East Player of the Year award.

Throughout his two seasons with Villanova, he started in all 56 games he appeared in and finished with career averages of 12.8 points and 9.0 rebounds per game. He also shot 47.8% overall.

Robinson-Earl also won the 2020 Big East Freshman of the Year in his debut season and was a 2021 finalist for the Karl Malone Award, an accolade given to the nation’s top power forward in college basketball.

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.
