Niagara announces signing of 6-8 forward Dominic Robb

Niagara University's men's basketball team started the process of filling its critical needs on the front line by signing 6-foot-8 Pittsburgh native Dominic Robb.

Niagara on Thursday officially announced the signing of Robb, who revealed his commitment last week. Robb spent last season at Hunn School of Princeton, N.J., a prep school that has produced more than 40 Division I athletes the past 15 years. Robb averaged 14 points, nine rebounds and three blocks per game. He has a 7-foot-1 wingspan. He earned first team All-Mid-Atlantic Prep League honors and was a second-team, Class A all-state choice.

"Dom has good size and length and is really progressing offensively,” said Niagara coach Chris Casey. “We are excited to coach him and he will be a very good front court player in our league."

Niagara needs to rebuild its front line after losing 6-6 starter Ramone Snowden to transfer, and Robb could see a lot of playing time immediately. Robb graduated from Pittsburgh's North Catholic High in 2014. As a senior, Robb helped North Catholic advance to the Western Pennsylvania finals and the state quarterfinals. inals. He ended the 2014 season with several accolades, including PG First Team All-Section (WPIAL A), PIAA All-State Class A Team, PG North Fab-Five All-State, BC Times Fab-Five and Round-Ball Classic All-Star.

“I chose Niagara because of the strong community and atmosphere,” Robb said. “The coaching staff is willing to take a young team and work hard to win a championship and the academic community is willing to help you achieve your goals.”

Robb said he picked Niagara over VMI and received interest from Colgate, Holy Cross and Bucknell.
