WKU BASKETBALL | Robinson Returns to WKU Campus

08/28/2017 05:54 PM

The wild saga surrounding five-star center Mitchell Robinson continued on Monday, as WKU men’s basketball head coach Rick Stansbury announced that Robinson is back on campus and is enrolled for the fall semester.

“I’ve said it many times – Mitchell is a good kid who can benefit greatly from the structure and accountability provided to him here,” said Stansbury. “As I stated previously, there are requirements for his return that will be handled internally.”

WKU men’s basketball granted Robinson a release back on August 1, a day after the program announced Robinson had been suspended for violation of team rules.

A few days before the suspension, reports surfaced that Robinson had left campus.

“I’ve learned from some decisions I’ve made in my life. I accept all responsibility for my actions and look forward to gaining back the respect of all of my coaches, teammates and fans,” said Robinson. “This is where I want to be, and I want to help the Hilltoppers compete for a championship.”

WKU also announced on Monday that junior guard Jordan Brangers is no longer a member of the WKU men’s basketball program. The decision comes after a standard review of all WKU transfer students determined that Brangers did not meet NCAA transfer requirements.
