Elite 2: Robinson twins look to continue improving together

SlideThroughout their lives, twins Aaron and Andrew Robinson have been by each other’s side.

Now, as they enter their senior year of high school at Springbrook (Md.) High School, they’ll be looking to continue that relationship on and off the court at the collegiate level.

“That’s been our goal, to be able to go to the same school and play together,” Aaron, a 6-foot-4 guard and the elder brother by four minutes, said. “But since we both play the wing, I’ll usually play the two and he’ll go to the three. We’d try to go to a place that would best accommodate the both of us.

“That would be the best for us, that’s been the goal since we were young.”

“That’d be cool for me, trying to go to school together,” Andrew, a 6-foot-5 guard, added. “That’s what we try to strive for at these camps and tournaments, to prove that we both can play, hopefully for the same school.”

So far in their recruitment, the 2014 guards have drawn similar interest from schools. Andrew holds offers from Delaware, Robert Morris and UMBC. Aaron has yet to receive an offer, but has drawn interest from both Delaware and Robert Morris. Drexel, Towson and Quinnipiac have also expressed interest in the duo.

Although the two know that they must do what’s best for them, even if that means committing to different schools, the two push each other as much as possible with the hopes of achieving their goal.

“We help each other out because we’re both trying to get to the same place, we’ve got the same goals,” Andrew said. “We work out together, we raise each other and make sure we both get to where we want to go at the end of the day.”

Helping each other on the court is a big factor for the duo, but it still doesn’t stop Aaron from occasionally teasing his younger brother.

“I hold it over his head a lot,” Aaron said. “He doesn’t like it that much, but every time I get the chance, I say ‘oh yeah, he’s my little brother’. I’m four minutes older than him, he doesn’t like to say it but he has to admit it.”

“He tries to, he’s older than me but I’m about an inch taller and 10 pounds heavier,” Andrew added. “So I try to impose my will frequently. But all in all, it’s just a sibling rivalry, we’re both just trying to go where we want.”

Aaron may have the upper hand on his birth certificate, but who has the best game on the court?

While Andrew was a little more concise (Me, of course,” Andrew said), Aaron at least gave his younger brother some props before ultimately giving himself the title of best player in the family.

“Of course I’m going to say me,” Aaron said. “I think we’ve got different skillset, he’s a little better at shooting than me, I’m a better ball-handler, I’m quicker and stuff like that. But of course I’m going to say I’m the better player.

“Plus I beat him in one-on-one most of the time.”
