Three after Robinson the hardest

Alex Robinson, a top 100 recruit, is playing more of a facilitator role for the Texas Titans this year. The talented lead guard is averaging nearly six assists game.

Alex Robinson is having success playing a different role during his final AAU season.

"I've changed up my game a lot," Robinson acknowledged following a game at the EYBL Dallas event this past weekend.

Robinson, a 6-foot guard out of Arlington (Tex.) Mansfield Timberview, now runs with the Texas Titans. With scoring threats around him, Robinson is used in more of a facilitating role than he has been in the past.

"My old team – DHJ5 – I had to a do a bunch of scoring," Robinson said. "On this team since they have a bunch of guys that can score, I can show that I can be a true point guard."

Robinson said college coaches noticed the change in his game during the April evaluation periods. He said the SMU staff, specifically pointed it out. Larry Brown offered him as well.

"They didn't realize how good of a point guard I could be," he said of the SMU staff. "I told them my situation on my other team. I do what the coaches tell me to do and that was my role."

Texas A&M, Stanford, Vanderbilt, Minnesota, Baylor, Florida State and Texas are all involved in his recruitment as well.

"I don't really have any favorites," Robinson said. "I'm pretty open. I'm going to cut down my list later on this year. I want to keep it open for any new possibilities."

Robinson, a four-star prospect, has been to Texas A&M twice, Baylor twice and has also been by Texas.

"A&M is a cool place," Robinson said. "It's one of the biggest campuses. I have family down there and their student section is crazy."

"Baylor is cool," he added. "It's in the Big 12 and you can't go wrong with the Big 12."

Robinson said three of the schools recruiting him are coming after him the hardest.

"Right now I would say SMU, Texas A&M and Vanderbilt," he said. "They are hitting me up just about every day."
