A little over a month after announcing that he would be transferring away from Texas A&M, four-star guard Alex Robinson selected TCU as the destination to finish his collegiate career this morning. Robinson will reportedly enroll next semester so that he can be eligible to play at the beginning of the 2016-17 season. He will have three years of eligibility remaining.

Trent Johnson announced Robinson's arrival this morning with a statement:

"Alex is an explosive point guard. He plays with good speed and is capable of making plays for himself as well as his teammates. He was one of the top players in the country his senior year in high school. We are very fortunate to be able to add a player with his talent to our roster at this time of year."

Robinson appeared in 33 games for the Aggies a year ago, where he averaged 5.2 points, 2.6 assists, and 2.3 rebounds per game. He scored in double-figures eight times, including a career-high 21 points against Louisiana Tech in his final game at Texas A&M.

Trent Johnson was one of many coaches across the country who pursued Robinson during his prolific career at Timberview High School in Arlington. Robinson finished his senior season at Timberview averaging over 23 points per game, en route to earning a spot on the All-State team. He was named a four-star recruit by both ESPN and Scout, as well as 10th best point guard prospect and the 47th best overall prospect in the country.

Out of high school, Robinson received offers from Baylor, Florida State, Oklahoma State, SMU, TCU, Texas A&M, Vanderbilt, and Virginia, among others.

Robinson was in attendance for TCU's 80-69 win over Abilene Christian on Sunday in what was the first game played inside the Ed and Rae Schollmaier Arena.
