WKU BASKETBALL | Impact of Robinson's Decision to Leave WKU

09/19/2017 04:49 PM

As reported earlier this week, five-star center Mitchell Robinson decided to leave the WKU men’s basketball program for the second time.

He had previously been granted a release to transfer a month and a half ago, but he returned to WKU and actually enrolled in fall classes.

Scout.com recruiting director Evan Daniels reported on Sunday that Robinson will instead focus on preparing for the 2018 NBA Draft.

Spectrum News’ T.J. Beisner talked with Evan Daniels on Tuesday about Robinson’s decision to leave WKU and the impact it will have on his 2018 NBA Draft stock and the future of the WKU men’s basketball program:
