Here’s some eye-opening news: five-star center Mitchell Robinson has left Western Kentucky. Mitchell, a consensus top 10 recruit, was primed to be a game changer for Rick Stansbury at Western, but this morning, the school’s student paper tweeted out that he has left campus:
Five-star recruit Mitchell Robinson is no longer on #WKU's campus. He left as soon as yesterday, a source told the Herald.

Whoa. Earlier this month, former UNC star Shammond Williams, who is Robinson’s godfather, resigned from Western’s staff. Since then, rumors spread that Robinson was rethinking his commitment to Western, but he arrived on campus and enrolled in classes. Now, it appears he’s had a change of heart.
Where will Robinson go from here? Overseas? Prep school? Lexington?
(Just kidding on that last one. Kind of.)
