The Kentucky Wildcats have had about as good on an offseason to this point as you could ask for with several players announcing they would be returning for another season at Kentucky.

Aside from current players staying, the Cats are expected to add some transfers as well.

On Monday, Wan’Dale Robinson took to Twitter to announce that he will be transferring from Nebraska and has officially entered the transfer portal.

Many assumed that he was going to be on his way to Kentucky and that announcement could come as soon as Wednesday.

However, Justin Rowland of Rivals reported today that “there is increasing uncertainty about where Wan’Dale Robinson will end up.”

Now, Steve Wiltfong of 247 Sports reports that Purdue is making a major push for Robinson. Wiltfong had logged a crystal ball prediction in favor of Kentucky on Monday.

A source says Robinson was all set to move to Lexington on Jan. 19, apartment lined up and ready to go.

Perhaps Robinson, who is on a mini-vacation, will still move in. But he could also end up at Purdue.

“It’s really 50-50 now,” a source said.

Robinson was outstanding during his time with Nebraska and would add much-needed skill and depth at the wide receiver position for the Cats.

In his 18-game career with Nebraska, Robinson hauled in 91 receptions for 914 yards and three TDs.

However, Nebraska also liked to use him as a running back, as he carried the ball 134 times for 580-yards and four more scores.

In total, Robinson tallied 225 plays from scrimmage for 1494 yards and seven TDs.

Hopefully, the original predictions are correct and Robinson ends up in Lexington, because what he brings to the table is exactly what the Cats need as they head into 2021 with new offensive coordinator Liam Coen.

We will keep you updated as more information is released on where Robinson is going to transfer.
