Recruiting wise the school list has been long for a while, but now it is getting even longer with more big names. “Florida, Miami, and Texas A&M are my new offers,” noted Robinson. “Also I am hearing from Stanford. The schools that have been recruiting me for a while are Wake Forest, Florida State, Georgia, Georgia Tech, and a few others.” The offer from Florida is new, but Robinson says he has a long standing relationship with Head Coach Mike White and his staff. “They came to my school last year when they were at Louisiana Tech and they offered me, but they told me I wouldn’t end up there because they knew I wouldn’t go to a mid-major school,” explained Robinson. “So when they got the Florida job they contacted me again, and the next day they offered me.” The Florida State Seminoles have also been very active in recruiting Robinson, and they already have a commitment from AAU running mate on the wing Trent Forrest. “They are just saying that they have a vision for me,” said Robinson of Florida State. “They want me to play alongside Trent like I am now. They are trying to bring in a big recruiting class with Trent, and then they are trying to get me and Udoka (Azibuike), so that is something I like a lot.” While no offer has come yet from Stanford, the academically inclined Robinson says one could be close. “Right now I am just waiting on my ACT,” said Robinson. “I am going to take it again in June. When I do that they want me to send in my transcript, and that is when I am pretty sure I will get an offer.” For now there is no specific timeline for the four-star prospect, but he does know what he will be looking for in a school. “I am just looking for a family environment and a place that really develops their players,” explained Robinson. “Skill development is big for me, and just a system where I fit in.”
School list expanding for Robinson
Four-star wing Brandon Robinson has been on the radar for a while, but it is clear that he has taken his game to a new level while running with the Georgia Stars in the EYBL. Robinson is now attracting more interest than ever in a recruitment that is getting very crowded. “The spring has gone well,” said Robinson. “My recruitment has picked up, I am getting more phone calls, and it has just been fun to get out and play with my guys.” He continued, “I am just being more aggressive, playing better defense, and just trying to work on my game.”
