Mid-Major Points Commit

On Tuesday, a pair of outstanding mid-major point guards reached collegiate decisions. Gerald Robinson and Andrew Beinert, a pair highly touted Scout.com point guards are off the board.

Last year George Mason put the exclamation point on mid-major basketball basketball success stories. The Patriots deep run into the NCAA's has helped the spotlight shine brighter than ever on the non-high-major programs.

Having said that, a pair of mid-major players you might want to file away for future reference made college decisions this week. Both players, ranked among the elite mid-major prospects at their position by Scout.com, could be kids you seen playing in March by the time their careers mature.

Gerald Robinson, a 6-foot point guard out of Nashville's King High, is ranked No. 30 on the national point guard list by Scout.com. Robinson had his pick of strong mid-major schools, including George Mason and Tennessee-Chattanooga. Last week the Patriots received a commitment that took them out of the running and a few days later he texted the message that he's a Tiger.

Up at Holy Cross, the good news came on Tuesday as well. Andrew Beinert picked the school over Davidson after an intense mid-level recruiting tussle.

"He's decided to attend the College of Holy Cross," Chaminade Mineola coach Bob Paul said.

Both Robinson and Beinert have one thing in common: they carry the reputation of being tough, hard-nosed winners. Beinert's AAU team, the Long Island Lightning, toed the line with as many laced squads they could find and the guard found ways to keep them in games and often times get quality wins.

Robinson, a communicator at the point guard position, is going to be a leader. He's the type of kid you hand the basketball to and four years later he's pumped a ton of wins into your career total.

Both players might have been able to get it done at a slightly higher level. Both made excellent career decisions and we project them to be legitimate impact players at their respective universities.
