VCSU men's basketball team adds another recruit.  

The Valley City State men's basketball team has added one more recruit for the 2013-14 season.

Head coach Jeff Kaminsky says 6-foot-5 forward Russel Robinson will attend Valley City State University and play basketball for the Vikings starting this fall.

Robinson will have two years of athletic eligibility remaining after playing a year at Danville Area Community College and a year at Richard J. Daley College, both in Illinois.

"Russel will be a great addition to our program," said Kaminksy. "He is a versatile forward who has good experience playing at the college level. We look forward to the impact he can have on our program both on and off the court."

A native of Chicago, Robinson averaged 11 points, seven rebounds and one block per game during his sophomore year at Richard J. Daley College in 2009-10. He did not play basketball the past three seasons. Robinson played his high school basketball at Mount Carmel High School in Chicago.

Robinson wraps up a large recruiting class for VCSU that includes 11 new faces. The Vikings have just five returning players from last year's national tournament team: Aaron Duske, AJ McDonald, Anthony Saavedra, Ty Pratt and Thomas Cherry. Cherry redshirted last season.

Adam Krueger, G, 6-4, Rosholt, S.D.
Chase Carpenter, F, 6-4, Valley City, N.D.
Mac Kroeplin, G, 6-2, Grand Forks, N.D.
