Mark Stoops and Vince Marrow visit Wandale Robinson after crushing Louisville

UK is working hard to keep its top commit in the fold as signing day nears.


During Mark Stoops’ weekly coaches’ radio show last Monday, the head coach for Kentucky said that he had two in-home visits lined up for Sunday.

One of those in-home visits will be to one of Kentucky’s top-rated commits, Wandale Robinson. Robinson confirmed with CatsPause that Stoops, along with Kentucky’s tight ends coach Vince Marrow, offensive coordinator Eddie Gran and wide receivers coach Michael Smith, would visit with him in his home in Frankfort on Sunday.

Justin Rowland of CatsIllustrated added this:

Robinson just recently committed to the University of Kentucky during a ceremony which was held at Western Hills High School on November 1st. He became the Wildcats’ top commitment. In the latest 247 Sports rankings, Robinson has jumped to the No. 117 player overall nationally and the top-rated recruit in the state of Kentucky.

At the time of Robinson’s decision, he chose the Wildcats over both Nebraska and Ohio State. He’s rated as a four-star prospect and ranks as the nation’s number 4 all-purpose back according to 247Sports.

However, ever since his commitment, there has been a little bit of speculation that Robinson could consider the Louisville Cardinals if they were to hire Purdue head coach, Jeff Brohm.

Robinson did have the Purdue Boilermakers in his final six schools, so that’s where the speculation comes from. If Brohm ultimately becomes the head coach of Louisville, could Robinson consider making a change in his commitment?

When asked by Fox 56 reporter Dan Reiffer how he addresses the speculation around Brohm, Robinson said the following:

“I’m not going to say anything unless that actually happens. Obviously, I’ll be a little open to consideration, but nothing right now. As of right now, I’m still 100 percent solid with Kentucky. I’m not really worried about any other schools.”

Robinson had an outstanding senior season at Western Hills High School in which he had 1,973 rushing yards and 30 touchdowns on 206 carries. He also had 31 receptions for 725 yards and 11 touchdowns as well as 173 passing yards and two passing touchdowns. Robinson had a total of 131 touchdowns during his high school football career and that’s second all-time time in Kentucky High School football history. He accumulated 6,796 rushing yards which is 11th all-time.

There’s still work to be done, but for now, Kentucky is in good shape to get Robinson signed in December when the early signing period begins.
