Villanova Wildcats head coach Jay Wright isn’t known as a man who allows freshmen to get run early, but on Tuesday night, Jeremiah Robinson-Earl was doing just that.

In a massive blowout victory against Army, the freshman scored 19 points after getting the start. Following the game, Wright claimed he wasn’t exactly shocked by the young man’s stellar performance.

“I can’t say I was surprised,” Wright said. “I’m impressed with his maturity and his basketball IQ.”

Considered one of the 15 (or so) best recruiting in the 2019 class, Jeremiah Robinson-Earl made nine of his 14 attempts from the floor, but did turn it over five teams — though, to be fair to him, he played with the ball in his hands often and it was literally his first game at the collegiate level.

It’s insanely early in the 2019-20 college basketball season — one, game in fact — so no on really knows what awaits any specific team trotting about hardwoods just yet.

Nevertheless, this is a promising development for the Villanova Wildcats.
