Wan’Dale Robinson is starting to get Heisman hype

He leads the SEC in receiving yards through five games.

Drew Brown - Sea of Blue

The Kentucky Wildcats have struggled offensively as a unit in recent weeks, but one player in particular has been playing at an elite level.

All of BBN new how massive the addition of Wan’Dale Robinson was before the season began. The hype was unbelievable and through the Cats’ 5-0 start, he has delivered.

Robinson is currently the SEC’s leading receiver as he has hauled in 29 receptions for 469-yards and three touchdowns. He has also added 78-yards rushing on just four attempts.

Heading into Week 6, Matt Zenitz and Charles Power of On3 Sports released their Heisman Hot Board.

Making the list for Zenitz was none other than Wan’Dale Robinson.

The other five players making his list was QB Bryce Young (Alabama), RB Bijan Robinson (Texas), RB Kenneth Walker (Michigan State), QB Kenny Pickett (Pitt), and WR Jahan Dotson (Penn State).

“In 11 games last season, Kentucky didn’t have a single player with more than 473 receiving yards,” Zenitz wrote. “Robinson, a Nebraska transfer, has almost eclipsed that already (with 469 receiving yards in the Wildcats’ first five games) to go along with 78 rushing yards and three touchdowns. His average of 109 scrimmage yards per game ranks first among SEC wide receivers. In Kentucky’s 20-13 upset of then-No. 10 Florida, Robinson had four of the Wildcats’ seven catches, including an early 41-yard touchdown.”

Robinson has been outstanding for Kentucky and the nation is starting to take notice. We all owe Nebraska a big thanks for misusing Robinson during his time there leading him to transfer to Kentucky.
