Texas A&M adds a key piece to the 2017 puzzle in Mitchell Robinson

Texas A&M has added a nice piece to their 2017 class with the pick up of Mitchell Robinson.

The Texas A&M Aggies have been on a recruiting roll in basketball the last few years, and now they are extending it to the 2017 class. This summer playing with the Alabama Challenge, Mitchell Robinson exploded onto the scene showing big time upside with his athleticism and ability to run the floor as well as block shots. On Saturday he made the decision to pick Texas A&M.

The 6-foot-10 Robinson had offers from schools such as Alabama, Auburn, Florida State, and LSU with interest coming in from Kentucy, but an eary decision was made, and he picked the Aggies according to his step father Jonathan.

"Yes, Mitchell has picked Texas A&M," he informed Scout.com

This commitment gives Texas A&M a very good start in the class. Robinson gives Texas A&M an athletic center who should pair nicely with class of 2016 prospect Robert Williams. Both of them can provide the athleticism and toughness on the low block to be a problem for opposing teams trying to score at the rim.

Look for the Aggies to continue to attack on the recruiting trail in this class and add some firepower in the backcourt to go along with Robinson up front.
