Russell Robinson is a very popular target across the country. The shooting guard from Rice has a neat and trim list. Could some things set his recruitment in motion faster?
We had a chance to speak with Russell Robinson
at the USA Basketball Youth Developmental Festival. This was just days after guard Josh Wright
told us that Connecticut
led for his services and that it was within the realm of possibility that he could decide at ABCD Camp.
Would a decision by Wright influence Robinson at all? "No, not all," Robinson said. "I haven't played with him but I have seen him before." Robinson's is considering the Huskies and knows their situation with the guards.
"Connecticut told me that they want two guards."
Georgia Tech, Kansas, Kentucky, Florida, Florida State and Notre Dame comprise the list Robinson tossed us at the USA event. However, there have been whispers that Georgia Tech leads.
"Kinda true," Robinson said. "But now everyone is on the same slate and is in the race."
Robinson sounds like a young man who wants to take fall official visits. "When I have the right thing and I feel it, that's the time [to decide]."
