WKU BASKETBALL | Are more top recruits coming to Western after Robinson's commitment

06/30/2016 08:00 PM

Mitchell Robinson committed to the Western Kentucky basketball team for 2017, and if he stays true to that commitment, he would be one of if not the highest rated recruit to don the Hilltopper jersey.

But his commitment may be even more important because of its ability to sway other recruits searching for their perfect college fit. WKU is currently in the mix for a number of highly rated recruits, and Robinson’s announcement could have been exactly what they wanted to hear before jumping on board with Rick Stansbury.
