A new weapon for Michigan coach John Beilein has officially been unveiled by the basketball program on Wednesday.

Six-foot-8 wing Duncan Robinson's addition was formally announced by Michigan. Robinson, a Div. III product from Williams College, averaged 17.1 points per game and was the first Williams freshman to score 500-plus points in a season.

However, due to NCAA transfer rules, Robinson will need to sit out the entire 2014-2015 season.

"We feel very fortunate to add Duncan to our program at this time," said Beilein in a statement. "We love his ability to play multiple positions while also stretching defenses with his three-point shooting. Duncan is a great fit for the University and our basketball program. It is going to be a pleasure to watch his game and his body develop in the years ahead."

Robinson played under former Beilein assistant coach Mike Maker. Maker left Williams College to become head coach at Marist College.

"This was an opportunity I just could not pass on," said Robinson in a statement. "I have a lot of work to do both academically and athletically, however, Coach Beilein, the staff and the players have been incredibly welcoming and that has made the whole process much easier for me and my family. I am excited for what the future holds. It has been a really exciting transition and I can't wait to help this program in any way that I can."
