Aggie Hoops Lands Top 100 Recruit Alex Robinson

Billy Kennedy is working to get the Aggies back on the map for top Texas talent. - USA TODAY Sports

Coach Kennedy and his staff stayed in state and reeled in one of the most talented players on the board for the 2014 class.

It's no secret that college coaches in the state of Texas have had a problem keeping the top high school talent in the state. Aggie Hoops and Billy Kennedy took a big step in the right direction for the Ags in the state on Tuesday when they received a commitment from 2014 PG Alex Robinson. Alex plays for Timberview High School and is currently ranked as the 58th best player in the nation by Rivals, 89th by ESPN, and 73rd by 247Sports. As far as rankings go, Robinson is the highest rated recruit that will be making his way to College Station since Deandre Jordan (8th) from the 2007 recruiting class and Bryan Davis (59th) from the 2006 recruiting class. The Aggie coaching staff made a big statement with Robinson's recruitment. Within a few hours of the new breaking, nearly every sports media outlet that covers basketball recruiting had released an article talking about the commitment and the splash Billy Kennedy made in the state. By landing the Top-10 talent from the state of Texas, the Aggies will be popping up in conversations in a lot of gyms across the state as open gyms start up this week.

"They are one of the top pick and roll programs for the SEC and they are losing their starting point guard." http://highschoolsportsblog.dallasnews.com/2013/09/mansfield-timberview-point-guard-alex-robinson-orally-commits-to-texas-am.html/

Alex Robinson is a kid that I've really liked as a PG since I first saw his film last year. It's a little difficult to get excited about some of the kids in the current pool of PG recruits out there, but Robinson really stands out when you watch his film. The 6'1" lefty has great athleticism for a PG. That athleticism pairs up really with his surprising strength when he's attacking the rim. His ball handling and jumper round off a game that makes Robinson difficult to guard. As a point guard, he's a coaches dream with his court vision and ability to create for himself. He's not a guy you're going to have on the floor and worry about if he can handle a team flashing between man defense and zone defense. Aggie Hoops fans should definitely be excited about Alex Robinson. He has the ability to come in and contribute as a freshman while continuing to improve an already very solid game. The early signing period for basketball begins Novemeber 13th, and I'd keep an eye on the Aggie coaching staff as they focus in one some of the other big talent kids in the state between now and then.
