Later in the month at nationals in Orlando while playing for Team Dayton, Robinson's team went 4-2 before bowing out. Robinson was told by his college friends Chris Wright (Dayton) and Kenny Hayes (Miami) to play hard in Orlando. His numbers indicated he took their advice. Robinson's point totals for these first five games at Nationals in order were 20, 17 (8 assists), 16 (7 assists), 23, and 19.

Recruiting wise, Robinson is still hearing from Miami, Ohio, Dayton, and Lehigh. On August 1st, he spoke to Miami coaches and discussed taking visits to Miami once school started. On August 2nd, he received a call from Lehigh assistant coach Matt Logie and he agreed to take an official visit to Lehigh as well. Robinson also said that Kent State, Bowling Green, and Mississippi State have called new Trotwood Madison head coach Mark Baker about him. However, he has not spoken with those schools directly.

Robinson indicated Miami and Furman are his only two offers at this point. He indicated he has not heard from Furman since last month. As for Lehigh, Robinson said, "I think they will offer me on my official visit there."

So far, Robinson has taken unofficial visits to "Dayton (2 visits), Miami of Ohio, Wright State, and Cincinnati." His last visit to Dayton was two months ago.

He visited Miami during Miami's team camp. "I really like the campus where the buildings are separated and everything," Robinson said, "and the coaches are real cool."

Robinson's visit to Cincinnati was last year. He said he also like that campus as well.

Wright State has stopped calling on Robinson. Robinson said he has not spoken with the WSU staff since the Akron Lebron James tournament in April. However, WSU still continues to mail him materials.

When RedHawk Insider last talked to Aaron Robinson in early June, he indicated that Miami was his clear leader at that point. Two months later, Miami is no longer the clear cut favorite. Robinson said, "It is between Miami and Lehigh." Robinson said Furman is not an option for him.

In choosing a college, Robinson gave two criteria that are important to him. Robinson said, "I want to make an impact instantly. I do not want to sit on the bench. And academics are important."

Robinson plans on making a decision "in the next month or so, probably before the season starts."
