Robinson has two offers

2012 point guard Calaen Robinson secured two early offers. He talks about his first offer, Arizona State, the other schools that are recruiting him, and what he's looking for in a program.

After an impressive junior season, 6-foot-2, 163-pound Tempe (Ariz.) Corona Del Sol 2012 point guard Calaen Robinson enters AAU season with the opportunity to get plenty of attention in what's considered a generally weak point guard class out west.

Two schools have offered early, but others are paying attention.

"I have offers from Arizona State and St. Mary's," Robinson said. "I'm talking to UCLA, Cal, Washington State, Texas A&M, UNLV and Notre Dame."

It's early in Robinson's recruitment, as he doesn't plan on narrowing things down any time soon.

"I'm waiting for my senior year to do everything," he said. "I'm not taking visits until my senior year; I want to take all five."

Arizona State was on Robinson early and the coaches have discussed him coming in and playing with 2011 point guard signee Jahii Carson.

"My first offer was ASU," Robinson said. "They told me I had an offer and wanted me to commit. I was kind of seeing how it would be playing behind Jahii so I was shocked when I got it but I wouldn't mind going there."

Schools out west will have an advantage, as it doesn't appear that Robinson is eager to go too far from home.

"My mom wants me to stay close so it will probably be somewhere on the West Coast," he said. "Anywhere on the west."

In the early stages of the recruitment, Robinson doesn't have any specific aspects of a program the he's looking for.

"Not really," he said. "Whatever school puts the most on my back. I want to play."

When schools see Robinson for the first time, he says they'll be seeing a player who compares himself to one of the up and coming point guards in the NBA.

"My game is kind of a lefty game," Robinson said. "Not to be cocky but I play like Brandon Jennings. I want to get everyone the ball and get the W."
