Less than a month ago, Mitchell Robinson cleaned out his room at the University of Western Kentucky.
For all intents and purposes, it appeared as if he wouldn’t be honoring his previous commitment to play basketball for the program. After he asked for, and was granted his release from the program, there was little doubt over the fact that he would be transferring to a school that played in a Power-5 conference.
That didn’t pan out, and Robinson has reenrolled at Western Kentucky and intends to honor his commitment there.
“We just felt like it was the best place (for him to) go and play.” Robinson’s High School coach Butch Stockton told Scout.com.
Robinson’s decision to leave campus came after he was handed an indefinite suspension for a violation of team rules.
Robinson was one of the most highly recruited players in the country, and his decision to sign with WKU was considered a surprise. Many felt it had to do with his relationship to coach Shammond Williams, who was hired by the program in June of 2016.
Williams is no longer affiliated with the WKU basketball program.
