Robinson Still Weighing Options

Gerald Robinson is in the decision making process. The Nashville (Tenn.) King guard has a variety of interesting options in addition to a handful of developing situations.

Gerald Robinson, a 6-foot point guard out of Nashville, is faced with a variety of decisions. Some outstanding mid-level programs are hot on his trail while a select number of high-major schools are still in their decision making process on him.

Robinson can play, at which level he'll be most successful is tough to determine. He's got a presence about him at the point guard position that not everyone has. An outstanding communicator with good speed, he's rock solid as a mid-level floor general who you could project as an all-conference candidate. At a higher level, his road would be a little tougher, doable, but tougher. Thus leaving him with a difficult decision.

. "I don't want to go to a big place just to say I played in the ACC," Robinson told Scout.com. "I would like to go to the tournament, the NIT or the NCAA, preferably the NCAA. I want any kind of post season play."

He's been offered by Tennessee State, Chattanooga, Appalachian State, East Carolina, Furman, Mississippi, Murray State, Morehead State, UNC-Greensboro, American, Santa Clara, Lipscomb, Belmont, Middle Tennessee State and Tulane.

He'll visit Tennessee State the first weekend in September. Missouri, Virginia, Clemson and Final Four participant George Mason are giving him positive vibes but no offers to date.

"I talk to Virginia and Missouri all the time," Robinson said. "I talk to the Virginia head coach and the Missouri head coach is supposed to call me sometime this week; I've talked to the assistant coaches a bunch of times.

"They want me to come on official visits. I might take one up to George Mason but I have to sit down and think about it."

Robinson is keenly aware of the timeframe some colleges are working off. "I don't have a timeframe (myself) because I haven't sat down and thought about it. I want to kind of wait it out to see what I get but the thought also crossed my mind that what if all the mid-majors drop off because they have to sign somebody? What if those big names don't come through?"

What if those big names don't come through? That's exactly the dilemma Robinson is faced with this coming fall.
