Texas A&M coach Billy Kennedy took another excellent point guard off the board on Tuesday when ESPN 100 playmaker Alex Robinson (Arlington, Texas/Timberview) committed to the Aggies over offers from Vanderbilt, Florida State and Pittsburgh and recent interest from Louisville.
"I had a great relationship with the coaching staff, I loved the campus and living conditions at A&M," Robinson said.
The four-star prospect, who is ranked No. 89 overall in the ESPN 100, is fresh off his official visit to College Station over the weekend. This is a huge pickup for Kennedy and his staff, starting with the fact that Robinson is an in-state, nationally recognized recruit at a position that is in incredible demand throughout the country due to lack of high-major depth at the position.
"Coach Kennedy was straightforward with me, and I like that," Robinson said. "Coaches talked to me a lot, but Coach Kennedy backed up what he said with facts, and when I did my research those facts were true."
