After spending two seasons in Scott Frost’s offense at Nebraska, Wan’Dale Robinson is looking for a college football program that will better prepare him for success in the NFL.

In his initial social media announcement, Robinson stated that he wanted to play closer to home. Speaking for the first time since he announced he will enter his name into the transfer portal, the Frankfort native told ESPN’s Adam Rittenberg that how he was used in the Huskers’ offense also played a role in his decision to transfer.

“It was about 50-50 with my mom and how I was used at Nebraska,” Robinson said. “I loved the touches and the way I got the touches. Sometimes they don’t translate to the way I want them to for the NFL.”

To be more specific, Robinson prefers to play in an offense that uses “option routes, choice routes, over routes. Things to really see exactly what I can do with the ball in my hands.”

If only there was a school close to home that just hired an offensive coordinator from the NFL ranks.

    …as well as a running backs coach that has lots of recent NFL coaching experience. Hmmmmm…

    Like others have mentioned cincy, OSU will probably be in the hunt along with UK. I would like to see him end up in blue but would not surprise me a bit if he ended up at the other two.

    No thanks. He led UK on for a long time, then signed out of state.

    I’ll gladly take him if he wants to play here!

    Seems pretty demanding to me. Hope his attitude is right. No question about his talent. I remember him in high school.

    Just now listening to today’s radio show. During the first hour Matt hinted some UK football recruiting news could break during the show. Looks like he was talking about Robinson. Wonder if Matt calling it UK news means things are positive for UK?

      Most guys took that rejection personally which resulted in less “dates” down the road. Others of us grew thick skin, listened to their reasons for the rejection and modified our game and kept at it. Grit, as they call it, is a good personality trait. If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again.

    Sounds like he could be going to Purdue.
