Interesting that the article listed him as 6' 10". Shouldnt it have been in centimeters?

Good article.

6'-10"...shoot three's.... start outside and drive.... rebound and block shots...


My first though was we have a guy like that, so I went looking for a picture.



Sure enough. This is how Rev is going to keep Robin around for four more years.

a haircut.

The title of the article confused me. I assume it should have read that he gave a "verbal nod" to UP?!?! A "verbal not" doesn't make any sense to me... Oh Canada.

Also, it seems to me that we are going to have Tanner Riley and Riley Barker... The name "Riley" could become very confusing...

The initial article title confused me as well, but after reading it, realized that he did in fact commit to Portland.

Laughing I noticed that, too! In a video clip he looked very similar to Robin. Now, if we can find a Kramer clone and a Nik clone . . .

We just call him by his real name -- Robin. Razz

After watching video I realized that he is actually the guy in Blue in the above picture, was anyone else operating under the assumption that he was the other?

HaHa.

The other guy looks like Robin, too tongue

In the video, the resemblance is scarey, though. (hey! no spelling cracks - he's Canadian)

he even has Robin's haircut and carries himself similarly.

I'm still confused. So we are NOT getting a guy who may or may not have the same name as another recruit, and he is either the guy in blue or the guy in white in the picuture, and he is either Canadian or Dutch and may be Robin Smeulders with a haircut.

Ok, I think I got it now, thanks guys.

Yeah... I did a quick google search, he's definitely the red head... I can think of at least one PN regular who will be stoked...

I googling Smeulders and see if he has any half brothers or cousins in Canada.
I was talking to Robin's Mom and Dad at the 2008 WCC tourney but that subject did not come up,lol.
