Wandale Robinson is the top in-state recruit that Kentucky has landed since Drew Barker and Matt Elam. And while neither of those guys panned out as well as everyone hoped, Robinson seems like the real deal with electric play-making ability. Some have said the Wildcats could find him useful right now.
Updated rankings have been released for the 2019 class, and Robinson’s position has skyrocketed with the production he has shown in his senior season. According to the 247 Sports rankings, Robinson now stands as the No. 117 player overall in 2019. That is a whopping 131 spots ahead of where he came in with the last slate.
Robinson is now listed as the No. 2 all-purpose back in the country, which is huge for the star from Western Hills High School. He is the No. 1 prospect in the state of Kentucky.
Robinson is currently ranked No. 1 in scoring in Kentucky high school football for 2019, No. 6 in rushing yards, No. 31 in receiving yards, and No. 6 in forced fumbles. His 284 points scored this season is good for 9th all-time in the state in a single season.
Robinson is a Lynn Bowden/Rondale Moore type of athlete that can make defenses pay from a variety of positions on the field. Some speculate that he would be a third or fourth option in Kentucky’s offense this season if he was already on campus, so look for him to make an immediate impact when arriving in Lexington.
He certainly had a special senior season, and he has given Big Blue Nation a lot to look forward to. Check out some highlights from this year to get a glimpse of what he brings to Kroger Field in 2019.
