James Robinson Commits To Pitt
James Robinson has verbally committed to Pittsburgh.
Jamie Dixon has done a good job of developing point guards such as Brandin Knight, Levance Fields and Ashton Gibbs.
"That's one of the things coach (Jamie) Dixon and I talked about," Robinson said. "He's always had point guards who were good players, and he's always developed them to exceed expectations. That's one of my goals, to get better every day."
Robinson is rated as the No. 8 point guard in the Class of 2012 by Rivals and appeared in the recent Nike Global Challenge.
"I liked everything about it," Robinson said. "I've known Coach Dixon since ninth grade. Academically, Pitt is a top 10 public university and that speaks for itself. I want to be a part of the winning tradition and work hard and be surrounded by good people."
Robinson chose Pitt over Notre Dame and Virginia.
