Tyree Robinson knows what he wants

Tyree Robinson may not be deep in his recruitment, but that hasn't stopped Arizona from remaining strongly involved.

Picking up where it left off after last summer, this year's Oakland Soldiers club is once again loaded with talent. Even with a starting line-up consisting of Brandon Ashley, Aaron Gordon, and Jabari Bird, the Soldiers also have strong bench play, comprised of mostly younger prospects.

Included in this group is Tyrell and Tyree Robinson, a set of twins that are continuing to gain attention on the recruiting scene.

Listed at 6-foot-1, 180 pounds, Tyree Robinson is a 2013 guard who has enjoyed playing alongside the rest of the talented Soldiers squad.

"It's great. We've got a lot of scorers on the team," said Robinson. "We are stacked with wings. Our team is very young, but we've got Brandon Ashley who's a veteran and plays hard every time."

Not only is he comfortable with his teammates, but Robinson was also excited to play in the EYBL tournament due to the fact that his family was able to make it out.

"I got lots of family out here, a lot of support," he said. "We got to play hard, we got people watching us."

While it is still early in his recruitment, Tyree Robinson has a list of schools he is hearing from the most.

"Arizona, UCLA, Marquette, Texas, North Carolina, Washington State, and the whole Pac-10," said Robinson.

He acknowledges talking with Arizona's Sean Miller, yet it is more than just the head coach who is working on recruiting him to the desert.

"Nick [Johnson] wants us to come to Arizona, but we'll see," said Robinson with a smile.

Even though Nick Johnson is a friend of not only the Robinson twins, but also the entire Soldiers team, Tyree Robinson has specific characteristics he will be looking for in a school.

"Style of play, education, and my family coming to see me play are important to me," he said.

As he prepares for the rest of the AAU season and moves into his junior year of high school, Robinson has one main goal that he hopes to accomplish.

"I want to be a better point guard and get my teammates the ball," he said.

If Tyree Robinson does indeed reach his goal, he will remain a top target in the 2013 class for many schools and will undoubtedly be hearing from even more schools across the nation.
