Five-star center and Western Kentucky signee Mitchell Robinson’s Twitter account was hacked. The tweet sent that he had decommitted was not true and has since been deleted.


On Monday night, 5-star center Mitchell Robinson announced his decision to decommit from Western Kentucky on his Twitter account. According to the WKU Herald, though, Robinson’s account was hacked and he still plans to attend the university.

Head coach Rick Stansbury explained the situation in a press conference on Tuesday morning.

“Talked to his dad, there’s nothing to it,” Stansbury said. “He said somebody hacked in the account. So that’s what we were told. I haven’t talked to the kid, but the dad knows what’s going on. We don’t see no problems. He signed, so he can’t de-commit. His dad said there’s no concerns.”

Robinson’s tweet read, “After careful consideration, I have decided to DECOMMIT from the University of Western Kentucky and explore my options this only happens once.”

This tweet was later deleted.

In a separate tweet afterward, Robinson said, “It’s my senior year and this only happens once in a life time I think fair if I can take my visit after all I did work for where I’m at now. [sic]” This tweet has not been deleted.

Prior to his original commitment to Western Kentucky, Robinson was committed to Texas A&M, where Stansbury was an assistant coach. Robinson flipped his commitment after Stansbury accepted the head coaching job at WKU. Robinson’s godfather, Shammond Williams, is also an assistant coach for the Hilltoppers.

Robinson is the No. 4 center and No. 6 overall prospect in the 2017 class.
