Mitchell Robinson dunks during the 2017 McDonald's All-American Game. "As I've said before, Mitchell is a great kid, and we wish him well going forward".

The coach said Robinson is "a good kid" in a statement released Monday, but noted that the team is more important than one player.

Just days after being served an indefinite suspension for a violation of team rules, Robinson has opted to leave Western Kentucky to pursue his career at another university.

ESPN's Jeff Goodman reported last week that Robinson would be "OK" to transfer and sit out a year to play elsewhere next season. If he does not receive a waiver from the NCAA, he could play junior college basketball this year before entering the draft or he could go overseas like former high schools Brandon Jennings, Emmanuel Mudiay and Terrance Ferguson.

The questions will now shift to what's next for the top 10 prospect and potential 2018 lottery pick.

Less than two weeks after Robinson signed his letter-of-intent in November, a tweet from his account said he was decommitting from WKU, according to the WKU Herald.

Robinson went through three practices last week as the Hilltoppers prepared for an August 7-14 trip to Costa Rica, where they will play three games.

WKU announced last month that assistant coach Shammond Williams, Robinson's godfather, would not be back with Stansbury's staff this fall.

His dorm room and locker were completely cleared out. Williams reportedly was a major factor in Robinson's decision to sign with WKU.
