Mark Fox has nabbed another basketball player for the Dawgs. Gerald Robinson, Jr., a standout guard for Tennessee State, has announced that he is transferring to play for the Georgia Bulldogs. Robinson will have to sit out the 2009-10 season under NCAA transfer rules, but he will be able to practice with the team.
As a sophomore with the TSU Tigers, Robinson led the team in scoring with 17.8 points per game and was second with 3.87 assists per game. He also made 30 of 108 three-point shots (27.8%) and 149 of 193 free-throws (77.2 %).
Robinson reportedly chose the Dawgs over Alabama, Marquette and Memphis. Although he won’t be able to play until the 2010-11 season, Robinson brings to the Dawgs some much needed abilities: scoring, assists and free-throw shooting.
