Former Texas A&M point guard Alex Robinson will transfer to TCU for his sophomore year.

TCU men’s head basketball coach Trent Johnson announced Wednesday that Texas A&M’s Alex Robinson will┬ábe wearing TCU purple next season.

Robinson, a point guard, played in 32 contests for the Aggies during his freshman season in 2014-15. He averaged 18.8 minutes per game and shot 36.1 percent from beyond the arc.

In high school, Robinson was ranked highly by many recruiting services, including ESPN, who ranked him as the eighth-best high school player in Texas and the 13th-best point guard prospect in the nation. He spent his prep years at Mansfield Timberview High School in Arlington, where he made the All-State team.

Johnson said that Robinson is expected to make a big impact in purple and white.

Alex is an explosive point guard,” Johnson said. “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 will have to sit out the remainder of this season due to NCAA transfer rules. He will be eligible to play in the 2016-17 season, which will be his sophomore year.
