Per Evan Daniels, Robinson and Stansbury were going to meet today but the latter cancelled to focus on preparation for WKU's upcoming preseason trip to Costa Rica.

And if you think this Hilltopper soap opera would be burning up the WKU fan message boards, you'd be very mistaken!

WKU has an impressive basketball history. They have been to the Final Four. They have gone to Sweet Sixteen as recently as 2008. They have produced many NBA/ABA players.

Someone should be able to win there without the drama. Stansbury took Mississippi State to a Final Four in 1996 and resigned suddenly.

Stansbury did not coach Mississippi State until 1998, Richard Williams took Miss State to Final Four. He took them to an NIT Final Four in 2007 though.

C-Pip's right.  About EVERYTHING.

Bleacherreport.com: 5-Star C Mitchell Robinson Granted Transfer Release by Western Kentucky


clt says watch him end up at CHeat
If he does end up in college, will probably be LSU.

Like recent NC State pickup Braxton Beverly (originally signed with Ohio State but received release after Thad Matta's ouster), Robinson will have to receive an NCAA waiver to play this season as both had already enrolled at their previous schools.

While Stansbury lost his star recruit, he does regain his all-conference performer from last season earlier than expected.

FWIW, Mitchell Robinson has made two visits to LSU since leaving WKU.
