  • Western Kentucky grants Mitchell Robinson release to transfer

    Share Zagsblog Share Zagsblog
    The Mitchell Robinson saga took another turn on Tuesday when Western Kentucky issued a statement saying the 7-foot center has been granted a release to transfer.

    That came about 24 hours after Western Kentucky head coach Rick Stansbury issued a statement Monday saying that Robinson has been “suspended indefinitely” for a “violation of team rules.”

    Robinson last month cleaned out his room, packed his bags and left the Western Kentucky campus.

    On July 3, Robinson’s godfather, Shammod Williams, who was an assistant coach this past season for Hilltoppers, and a key factor in Robinson’s decision to sign with Western Kentucky, unexpectedly resigned from his position raising question marks as to whether or not Robinson would remain part of the WKU program.

    Robinson is projected as the No. 12 pick in 2018 by DraftExpress.com, so he could opt to sit out a year and prepare for the draft or play overseas next season. Per NCAA rules, he would have to sit a season upon transferring.
