WKU Basketball: Mitchell Robinson Suspended Indefinitely

-

The WKU basketball program was hoping to be on the rise in 2017.

After landing five-star recruit Mitchell Robinson, it was considered a head-scratcher, but ultimately a boon for a fledgling program. The school hadn’t made an appearance in the NCAA tournament in four years, and was counting on Robinson to be the centerpiece of the team that eventually got them there.

That’s on hold now.

Robinson was suspended from the team for a violation of team rules, according to a statement released by associate director Zach Greenwell. Exactly what rule he violated is not known at this point, but it doesn’t bode well.

If that weren’t enough, it appears he’s ready to call it quits with the university all together. His room at the university has been cleared out, and his standing as a student is tentative.

Robinson’s godfather, who was an assistant coach on the team before being let go earlier this year, says that his dismissal from the basketball program likely played a part in his decision to leave.

The center was heavily pursued by a number of schools before he decided to attend WKU. Many felt he would land at LSU, being that he is a Louisiana native. As it stands, one of the most talented freshman in the country is a member of any team, anywhere.

That’ll change at some point, but it seems unlikely that it’ll be at WKU.
