Former Texas A&M guard Alex Robinson is headed to TCU, according to Rob Dauster of NBC Sports’ College Basketball Talk.
Horned Frogs coach Trent Johnson addressed the addition of Robinson.
“Alex is an explosive point guard,” said Johnson. “He plays with good speed and is capable of making plays for himself as well as his teammates. He was one of the top players in the country his senior year in high school. We are very fortunate to be able to add a player with his talent to our roster at this time of year.”
A former four-star recruit from Arlington, Robinson averaged 5.2 points and 2.6 assists in just under 19 minutes per game last season and was expected to see more playing time this year.
However, coach Billy Kennedy brought in graduate transfer Anthony Collins from South Florida, leaving Robinson in a reserve role once again.
Robinson will have to sit out a year, per NCAA transfer rules, but he’ll undoubtedly inject live into a TCU team that is currently 6-4 and has not made an NCAA Tournament since 1998. Once he steps on the court, TCU basketball could finally make some noise once again.
