It was reported yesterday that five-star big man Mitchell Robinson was on his way back to Bowling Green to make up with Rick Stansbury and WKU about returning to campus.
This morning, Robinson enrolled back in classes and is officially a Hilltopper…. again.
Mitchell Robinson is on the WKU campus but hasn't formally met with staff yet, source says. Team meeting set for later.

A Mitchell Robinson update: Arrived in Bowling Green late Sunday night, now listed (again) in Western Kentucky’s online student directory

Just as a refresher, here are the timeline of events for Robinson’s ridiculous recruitment that has (hopefully) come to a close:
Mitchell Robinson has:
1. Enrolled at WKU
2. Withdrawn from WKU
3. Visited LSU, KU, UNO
4. And now returned to WKUhttps://t.co/UVYwqnR97D

He shocked the world by committing to WKU in the first place, and surprised no one when he packed up his bags and left.
Then he was a lock to attend Kansas, then he was going to head home and play at New Orleans or LSU, and then rumors spread that he was just going to wait it out a year and work toward entering the NBA Draft in 2018.
Now here we are, back to square one.
Here was the official release from WKU this afternoon including quotes from Stansbury and Robinson:
Teammate Jordan Brangers will not be there with him this year, as he has decided to transfer from the program.
Western Kentucky's Jordan Brangers told ESPN he has left WKU. Had previous committed to Texas Tech before heading to Bowling Green.

Rick Stansbury gave him an indefinite suspension after he left the first time, but who knows what the new punishment will be now that he has returned.
I think the Battletown, KY native is just happy he got his five-star back on the team.
