Thomas Robinson collected a pretty nice piece of recognition today when he was named a unanimous All American by the Associated Press. Robinson is the first player since Blake Griffin in 2009 to be named a unanimous selection and one has to wonder if this gives any indication as to who might be the eventual National Player of the Year.

Robinson was the ONLY unanimous selection and is joined by Jared Sullinger, Draymond Green, Doug McDermott and Kentucky freshman Anthony Davis on the first team list. Davis, who has been picked up a substantial amount of steam in the player of the year race late in the season, was not a unanimous selection. Ultimately it might be a hint at where the media is leaning with the NPOY voting but it's hard to say as both players have made compelling arguments throughout the season.

Either way the Kansas junior big man has certainly cemented his place in Kansas basketball history and will undoubtedly be honored for his accomplishments at a later date in the form of a jersey in the rafters. Robinson now heads to New Orleans with a chance to make an even bigger statement with two possible game remaining and a chance at a National Championship.
