A week after reportedly visiting LSU, former Chalmette High School center Mitchell Robinson is no longer being pursued by the Tigers.

Robinson, a five-star prospect who signed with Western Kentucky but left the program after just a couple of weeks on campus, was suspended and eventually given his release by Hilltoppers coach Rick Stansbury earlier this month.

ESPN’s Jeff Goodman first reported Thursday night that Robinson, a 7-foot McDonald’s All-American who was rated as the top center in the nation as well as the No. 8 overall prospect in this year’s recruiting class by 247 Sports, was no longer being a consideration for LSU.

Robinson, who may have to sit out this season because he enrolled in classes at WKU, is expected to visit Kansas this weekend.
