Aran Smith of NBADraft.net reports:
“The second rumored promise that we have heard coming out of the Chicago predraft camp is that the Lakers have promised Mitchell Robinson, which could explain his decision not to participate in predraft activities”
Mitchell Robinson, a 5-Star freshman, de-committed from Western Kentucky University, and skipped college to prepare for the NBA Draft.
The lifetime goal of mine is to play in the NBA and I feel like forgoing my year of college and going straight to work on a day-to-day basic will help prepare me, so I can focus on basketball and maturing.

As a senior, Robinson averaged:
25.7 PTS, 12.6 REB, 1.8 STL, 6.0 BLK
