Calaen Robinson's decision is in.

After a strong July that saw interest in him grow, Robinson, a 6-foot-2 guard out of Tempe (Ariz.) Corona Del Sol, opted to make his college choice.

Robinson committed to Arizona State over offers from BYU, St. Mary's and others. He confirmed the news to

"I was talking to coach (Herb) Sendek yesterday and he was talking about how ASU was a good fit," Robinson told "We talked about academics and the unofficial visit. I've looked around and I just think ASU is a good fit for me.

"It's close to home so I'll be close to my family. My mom wanted me to go to ASU and all my friends will be able to see me play."

Robinson credited the Arizona State coaches are a big reason why he chose the Sun Devils.

"I get along great with all the coaches," Robinson said. "Coach (Lamont) Smith, coach Sendek and all of the coaches are nice people and down to earth. They're not just recruiting me but they also tell me straight up everything I need to do in order to be a part of their program."

The future Sun Devil is confident in where the program is going.

"We can be a really good team," he said. "The way everything is going, we can be really good."

Robinson is Arizona State's third 2012 verbal commitment. He joins in-state recruits Kenny Martin and Eric Jacobsen to make up their current recruiting class.
