Four-star guard to decide on Monday

Leave a comment

One of July’s better shooting guards was four-star Georgia native Brandon Robinson, who came on strong with the Georgia Stars and Team Loaded North Carolina.

The 6-foot-5 Robinson had some big scoring games during the live period and it led to scholarship offers from schools from all over the country. The No. 76 overall prospect in the Class of 2016 cut his list to Florida State, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Louisville and North Carolina in August and he’s announcing his decision on Monday at a ceremony at his school, a source confirmed to NBCSports.com.

During the recruiting process, Robinson took official visits to Georgia Tech, Louisville and North Carolina and he made the decision to commit to one of his five finalists after a recent trip to Chapel Hill. But don’t count out Florida State and Georgia just yet. Robinson has seen both campuses on unofficial visits, so he is familiar with both programs.

Many perceive the Tar Heels to be in strong shape here, thanks in-part to the quick decision after the official visit, but there are a lot of good options for Robinson here.

One of the top shooters in the Class of 2016 has decided to end the recruiting process next week.

Four-star wing Brandon Robinson, who rebounded from a tough spring with a good month of July, will announce his college choice on Monday. Robinson, who’s taken two of his five available official visits, cut his list to five schools in mid-August. Those schools are Florida State, Georgia Tech, Louisville, North Carolina and Maryland, with Maryland being the lone non-ACC program on Robinson’s list.

The Douglasville, Georgia native has taken official visits to Georgia Tech and North Carolina, with the latter being completed just this past weekend. Many recruiting analysts see North Carolina, which will have some holes to fill on its perimeter after the 2015-16 season, as the favorite to land Robinson.

Robinson also has an official visit to Florida State scheduled for October 9, but given the timeline of his announcement he’ll have made his college choice before then.

Five-star 2016 recruit Malik Monk cut his list of schools to just six on Tuesday night.

Monk’s brother, Marcus, told Evan Daniels of Scout.com that the 6-foot-4 shooting guard is down to Arkansas, Florida State, Kansas, Kentucky, North Carolina and Oregon. Monk has also set four of his five official visits. He travles to Eugene, Oregon on Sept. 18. He will later be at Kansas for Late Night in the Phog on Oct. 9, followed by a trip to Lexington for Big Blue Madness the next weekend. Monk ends the month with a trip in-state to Arkansas.

Monk cut the likes of Baylor, Florida, Indiana, Iowa State and Memphis from contention. He is listed as the sixth-best player in the Class of 2016 by Rivals.

This summer, Monk averaged 25.2 points, 3.9 rebounds and 3.1 assists per game for the Arkansas Wings in the Nike EYBL. In July, he led USA South to the Nike Global Challenge title, earning MVP honors.
