Well he can't visit Tulane yet since the coach and team are in Spain. I still feel that, if he is academically eligible, Tulane has a real shot at getting him. Even if he doesn't get to wear green on game day, I think practicing against him will be good for Bul and Buay.

According to Nola.com, it is now between Kansas and UNO for Robinson.

http://www.nola.com/recruiting/index.ss ... obins.html

I dont get it.

Dunleavy > Slessinger
Tulane academics > UNO
Competition AAC > UNO's
Location is at worst a wash
Minutes to be had in the frontcourt

Why UNO and not Tulane? Is Shammond Williams so pissed at Dunleavy, that he is willing to cut off the nose to spite the face?

UNO beat us and made the big dance. Just a thought.

I wonder if Mr. Williams is going to get a coaching gig from UNO after heat dies down?

He'd be a good hire. He probably was promised something by WKU and it didn't happen.

Is he really being recruited by Kansas, and considering UNO? Maybe the ties to home are strong, but from a basketball standpoint, they are in different stratospheres.

He's one and done. So it really won't matter. He could end being too much of a distraction for a program like Kansas.

Don't forget Kansas took in Lester earl , which makes this look like child's play. Anyway, I hate to bash any kid, but he's got 1 and done written all over him. Nothing wrong with that, but he seems such a high maintenance pain in the ass that he probably isn't worth the hassle. Kentucky would be the best fit. They wouldn't even notice he's there and he'd still get drafted. not convinced he can make uno much more than marginally better. Just my impression

Will Guillory was on the Dunc and Holder show just now and was talking about teh mitchell Robinson recruitment. Basically his article about UNO or Kansas does not really come from having any inside information (hasnt talked to anybody including the Chalmette coach). He just knows Robinson visited LSU, Kansas and UNO and LSU is out - so for him, it must be Kansas or UNO.

BTW - Troy Dannen is going to come on the show at 11:30 am today.

This report says WKU may be back in the mix, but I doubt it.

http://www2.kusports.com/weblogs/tale-t ... cruiting-/

This report says he is leaning towards not going to any college (which is crazy unless he goes to Europe). He will not have access to good facilities to train etc. unless he is thinking of already hiring an agent.

There is also a report out of KU that quotes Bill Self as saying KU is unlikely to add another player this season.

Probably the right thing for the young man. If he's a first round pick, as projected, hard to walk away from that money or risk injury playing for a school he has no intention of getting a degree from.

Best of luck to the young man...I know the competition down in " Da' Parish ", will prepare him well
