Five-star center Mitchell Robinson has had a whirlwind summer as he was initially committed to Western Kentucky and then left the school, took some visits, was going to reportedly sit out the season in preparation for the NBA Draft next year and now he is apparently back at school.
The 7-footer was a top-10 recruit in the class of 2017, but was not considered to be a guaranteed lottery pick for the 2018 draft since he is still so raw in his abilities. So to skip a year and not be seen at all by scouts in meaningful playing time likely would have killed any pipe dreams of being a lottery pick. Now Robinson will need to dominate in conference play and show teams he's worth a high pick if he really wants to get out of school sooner rather than later.
