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 where he 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. Niagara now has six scholarship players on its roster.
“I chose Niagara because of the strong community and atmosphere,” Robb said in a statement.
