When Wan’Dale Robinson transferred from Nebraska back to his old Kentucky home, it was seen as one of the best pickups of the off-season for any school. With Eddie Gran out and the addition of Liam Coen and his super secret offense, Robinson made the decision to come to Lexington.
While we have yet to see what Robinson will do in the blue and white, the hype is already starting to gain some momentum.
Barrett Sallee of CBS Sports is even throwing Robinson’s name in the hat for a potential Heisman campaign this fall:
The Nebraska transfer and Swiss Army Knife will be the ultimate playmaker in the SEC and vault Kentucky back into SEC East contention. As a result, he’ll put himself in the Heisman race and make a push for a spot in New York as a Heisman finalist. OK, that might be too much of an overreaction. But he was the buzz of the spring in Lexington, and when combined with dual-threat quarterback Joey Gatewood — who is a big-time threat running up-the-middle — this Wildcats offense could be extremely dangerous.
If Robinson can have the season we all think he will and end up in New York City towards the end of the year representing the Kentucky Wildcats, build his statue right next to Mark Stoops’.
