So much for that.
On Wednesday, Chris Finwood said that Logan Robbins and the Atlanta Braves weren’t really that close on a deal.
Today, that changed, as Atlanta inked Robbins – a 10th round pick – and ended the junior from Owensboro’s time at WKU a year early.
Comments from Robbins per WKU:
“I have to thank God,” Robbins said. “He put me in this situation and blessed me with these opportunities and without him all this wouldn’t be possible. It is very exciting. It’s something that I have looked forward to since I was seven, eight years old and for this day to finally be here, it’s a dream come true. It’s what I’ve wanted since I was a little kid and why I’ve played all these years.
“My career at WKU is priceless. I learned so much from (head) coach (Chris) Finwood. He did a great job of teaching me from my first day on campus and he stayed on me the whole time and always was teaching me new things, new techniques and the proper way of doing things. I know without his good coaching that I wouldn’t be in this situation, either, so I give a lot of credit to coach Finwood and the whole coaching staff in general. They have all done a lot for me.”
