Mitchell Robinson, the five-star 7-foot freshman center from Western Kentucky has cleaned out his dorm and left campus per Scout.

Although there hasn’t been official confirmation that Robinson will transfer, that is believed to be the plan. Robinson, who is ranked by 247Sports as the No. 8 overall player in the Class of 2017, is considered the highest rated recruit in the school’s history. Robinson participated in both the McDonald’s All-American Game and the Jordan Brand Classic earlier this year.

Former WKU assistant and North Carolina star Shammond Williams was the lead recruiter for Robinson and also happens to be his Godfather. Robinson resigned from his assistant coaching position earlier this month.

Robinson’s departure leaves Western Kentucky with a five-man class of Josh Anderson, Jordan Brangers, Taveion Hollingsworth, Chris Duarte, and Jake Ohmer.

Robinson arrived on campus on July 10 after signing his letter of intent to play for the Hilltoppers in November. If he transfers elsewhere, it is likely Robinson will have to sit out one year before being eligible to play at the collegiate level.

According to DraftExpress, Robinson is projected to be the No. 12 pick in the 2018 NBA Draft. It is unclear how his departure from Western Kentucky will affect his draft stock.
