Mitchell Robinson’s Professional Life
Robinson enrolled at Kentucky University for the summer semester in July 2017 and spent two weeks practicing with the school squad before heading to Costa Rica. Mitchell was said to have departed campus and his room had vanished. He was then suspended indefinitely for violating the school’s policies. Robinson then opted to meet with the head coach and was given permission to transfer, despite the NCAA’s (National Collegiate Athletic Association) ruling, and he had to sit out the 2017-2018 season.
Robinson traveled to Louisiana State University, the University of Kansas, and the University of New Orleans in August 2017 in the hopes of obtaining an NCAA waiver. One month after leaving university, he returned to Kentucky University on August 27th.
Robinson announced on September 18, 2017, that he would drop out of college and prepare for the 2018 NBA Draft on his own time. He would be the first signed draft pick to go a whole year without playing for any learning institution before entering the NBA Draft, but he would still be credited as a Kentucky product by the NBA.
In addition, according to the NBA’s rules and regulations, Robinsons was finally barred from participating in the NBA G League due to his shortest time attending summer school in Western Kentucky. The NBA’s ruling had an impact on a few other players who were incomparable situations at the time, such as De’Anthony Melton and Billy Preston.
The ruling also encouraged at least one person to train on their own for an entire year before entering the NBA draft, as another star recruit knew as Darius Bazley initially planned on not attending college at Syracuse University in order to try out for the NBA G League before deciding against it, claiming that it was the only league where winning was not important after all.
Mitchell was named as one of the sixty-nine players who planned to participate in the NBA Draft Combine, a multi-day showcase held in May prior to the annual NBA draft in June. Robinson, unfortunately, withdrew from the proceedings.
