Recruiting expert changes pick to Nebraska for Wandale Robinson

The Cornhuskers appear poised to pry away the Bluegrass star.



He gone.

Kentucky native Wandale Robinson has been coveted by schools around the nation for a long time, and that will continue until he signs on the dotted line.

With the early signing period drawing closer, Robinson is still committed to Kentucky, but a big recruiting expert is now predicting a flip to Nebraska.

247 Sports’ Steve Wiltfong, who originally said Robinson could flip this week, is now predicting just that with his 247 Sports crystal ball prediction for the Cornhuskers.

Robinson has offers from a host of big-name schools, including the Ohio State Buckeyes, Michigan Wolverines and Alabama Crimson Tide. But since the fall, the belief has been that Kentucky or Nebraska would ultimately land his commitment.

After it initially looked like Nebraska would land his commitment, Robinson ended up committing to Kentucky in November. That seemed to be the end of that, at least in terms of the Cornhuskers being a player in this recruitment, but something seems to have happened recently that’s got Robinson strongly considering a flip.

For what it’s worth, he posted this late Tuesday night:

In 2017, Robinson rushed for 2,330 yard and 33 rushing touchdowns. He matched that with 25 receptions for 343 yards and six scores.

In his season season this year, Robinson, ran for 1,973 yards and 30 touchdowns while catching 11 more scores. He also completed 8/10 passes for 173 yards and two scores.

With the expectation that Benny Snell will to head to the NFL draft after this season, Kentucky is going to have a major hole to fill in the backfield. Robinson might have the skill to fill some of that hole especially being paired next to AJ Rose.

We should know soon if that will come to pass, or if Kentucky will need to find help for Rose from another source.
