WKU BASKETBALL| Toppers fans are on a recruiting roller coaster this week

WKU basketball fans were thrilled Wednesday when Coach Rick Stansbury picked up a commitment from five-star center Mitchell Robinson. The 6 foot 11” center is considered a top 10 recruit in the class of 2017. But that high was followed by disappointment Friday as Malik Newman, another top 10 recruit, announced his transfer to Kansas. Newman had also considered NC State, Oregon and WKU.
CN|2’s TJ Beisner talked Friday with Scout.com’s Jody Demling about recruiting for WKU and UofL. Demling says the fact that WKU was even in the running for Newman is an indication of where that program is headed.
