TCU’s athletic site GoFrogs.com confirmed the news with the release.
“Alex is an explosive point guard,” said head coach Trent Johnson in a statement (per GoFrogs.com). “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, a 6’1”, 170-pound guard from Arlington, Texas, was rated as a four-star recruit coming out of high school according to 247 Sports. The site ranked Robinson as the No. 60 overall recruit in the 2014 class and the 13th-best point guard of the class. So, this is a significant addition to a TCU squad that has languished at the bottom of the Big 12 standings year in and year out.
Robinson is coming off a season in which he averaged 5.2 points and 2.6 assists for the Aggies. He originally announced that he would transfer from Texas A&M in November. As per transfer rules he will have to sit out this season and be eligible to play next year.
