The news conference is expected to take place at 12:30 pm at Allen Fieldhouse in Lawrence, Kansas. He is expected to be a Top 10 pick in the 2012 NBA Draft.

By making this decision, Robinson will forgo his senior season. He helped the Jayhawks to the national championship game, before losing to the Kentucky Wildcats.

He averaged 17.9 points and 11.8 rebounds this season.

Many have speculated that Robinson could go anywhere to the Cleveland Cavaliers with the fourth overall pick to the Toronto Raptors with the eighth overall pick. The Sacramento Kings have the fifth overall pick, while the Portland Trail Blazers have the sixth pick (via the Brooklyn Nets) and the Golden State Warriors hold the seventh pick.
