Mitchell Robinson has had a much more surprise-filled summer than he probably would have liked. He started classes and went to practices at Western Kentucky, but left after only two weeks. He then took visits to LSU, Kansas and the University of New Orleans after reports said he would transfer. Now, he may not play basketball at all this year.

Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports and FanRag Sports is reporting that he is now considering sitting out the entire season to get ready for the 2018 NBA Draft. A source told Rothstein and FanRag Sports that he believes it could position him like it did Thon Maker in 2016 who took an extra year of high school in a post graduate program and was taken 10th overall by the Milwaukee Bucks.

He was fully released from the Hilltoppers' program after arriving on campus and participating in multiple practices. He was originally a Texas A&M commit, but reneged on that verbal commitment in the spring of 2016 before settling on WKU where his godfather, Shammond Williams, was a coach at the time.
