Wan’Dale Robinson is officially joining the Kentucky Wildcats after two long years. Robinson announced his intentions to transfer to Kentucky today, and it instantly made Kentucky a stronger contender for the SEC East next season.
Robinson is a do-it-all playmaker who will make an instant impact and contribute immediately for the Wildcats.
There’s much to be excited about for the 2021 football season with the addition of Robinson. A stacked roster, a favorable schedule (if it’s back to normal), and with the hopeful addition of fans in the stands, Kentucky could be in store for a magically season if everything falls in place.
Here’s how Twitter reacted to the news of Robinson’s decision:

I cannot explain how happy the Wandale Robinson news makes me.— OTH Kentucky Wildcats #BBN (@OTHwildcats) January 15, 2021
Obviously the previous situation was a big deal, but it just took him a little longer to come home
He makes next year’s offense SO MUCH MORE DYNAMIC
In Wan’Dale Robinson, Kentucky just added the one thing it most needs - a dynamic playmaker. Huge get (re-get) for Mark Stoops and Vince Marrow https://t.co/mMBNRFRVDx— Mark Story (@markcstory) January 15, 2021
Wan’dale Robinson is transferring to Kentucky. This is a great football player who has a lot of the same hybrid skills as Lynn Bowden did in my opinion. Can’t wait for next year and to see this guy do his thing.#BBN #Kentucky #Football #UK— Big Blue Point of View (@BigBlue_POV) January 15, 2021
More and more the way transfers go it will be important not to get caught up in your feelings. @vincemarrow didn't get Wan'Dale the first time around but it wasn't personal and that approach paid off. That's how you do it.— Justin Rowland (@RowlandRIVALS) January 15, 2021

Wan'Dale Robinson was force fed the football at Nebraska, but in the wrong ways. He played at ton of RB with 134 carries. That's not who he is. This is a slot WR first who can do other things. Feels like this was the main reason for the transfer.— Adam Luckett (@AdamLuckettKSR) January 15, 2021
