This edition of Five Questions is with Bri Robinson. We discuss Nebraska Attack 2023 UAA, Lincoln High School (NE) & recruiting and when Bri hopes to make a final decision. Thanks for your time Bri!
1) As you get closer to the start of your Senior year of school, you are still open in the recruiting process. Do you have a time frame for when you'd like to make your decision, and what are some of the things you're looking for in a school?
Ideally I would like to be committed by the end of September but it’s not something I want to rush. When looking for a school, I really value the relationship I have with the coaching staff and players because wherever I go I want to be able to be comfortable and feel at home whether the school is close or farther away.
2) You recently completed your final season of club play with Nebraska Attack 2023 UAA. As you look back on this season, and your time playing club basketball the last several years, what are some of your favorite memories either on or off the court?
Just being able to travel around the states and visit new places while playing with a highly competitive team who have players that love the game as much as I do was the best part for me. In terms of off the court, just the little things like team dinners or team sleepovers were always fun and over the couple of years that I played for attack I built relationships and bonds with people that I will always cherish!
3) Last season at Lincoln, you had a good season and the team finished 22-3. What are some of your individual and team goals for this upcoming season?
I think we are really coming into this year locked in. All of us have individually been working over the summer bettering ourselves for our end goal which is getting a chance to compete at state. This year I obviously want to be impactful on the court but I also want to be a role model on and off the court for our younger Links.
4) Whether in High School or in club play you've played in many gyms at the High School level and across the country. Besides your home court in Lincoln, what have been some of your favorite places to play hoops?
I liked all the gyms we played in for our GUAA sessions but I would definitely say my favorite local gym is the rec I go to because it is always empty and so peaceful.
5) You have been patient in the recruiting game, what is some of the advice that you would give younger players in either the Lincoln or Nebraska Attack program that has been beneficial to your process?
Enjoy it! The recruiting process can be fun, stressful or even tiring at times but being recruited to play at the next level is a blessing and something not everyone gets to do so being grateful of your opportunities and not taking them for granted is very important.
