It looks like the Kentucky Wildcats have made a big late addition as the 2016 college football season approaches.

According to Larry Vaught, UK has added wide receiver Marvin Robinson to their 2016 football team. Vaught also reports that Robinson was committed to the Wisconsin Badgers if he had made the necessary test scores to enroll there, but he ended up enrolling at UK instead after sitting out last year.

Jon Hale also reports that Robinson will be a walk-on this fall:

A 6-4, 175-pound receiver out of Stranahan High School in Fort Lauderdale, Robinson was ranked by 247 as the 170th-best prospect from the state of Florida, but his offer sheet indicates he was an under-the-radar recruit who scored some big-time offers from schools who did their homework.

According to Robinson's 247 page, he held offers from the likes of Florida State, UConn, Minnesota, Indiana, Akron and Wisconsin. That offer sheet would indicate Robinson has a lot of talent and potential to become an impact player in a Power 5 conference, perhaps even in the SEC for UK.
