Wandale Robinson Commits to KENTUCKY

In a shocking turn of events, Wandale Robinson will be a Kentucky Wildcat.

Vince Marrow pulled off some last-minute magic to keep the four-star prospect in the state of Kentucky for the next four years.  For the last month, Nebraska was the favorite in Robinson’s recruitment.  All of the buzz was trending toward the Cornhuskers until yesterday.  Today he is a Wildcat.

The Mr. Football frontrunner made his announcement in front of a packed house at Western Hills High School in Frankfort. He also released a commitment video via the Herald-Leader:

This year Robinson has rushed for 1,844 yards (9.6 yards per carry) and caught 22 passes for 493 yards.  A kickoff and punt returner, Robinson has 2,707 all-purpose yards and 41 total touchdowns, according to MaxPreps.

A consensus four-star recruit, 247 Sports ranks Robinson as the No. 248 prospect in the nation and the third-best all-purpose back.  The highest-ranked player in Kentucky’s recruiting class, Robinson’s addition moves Kentucky up to No. 25 in Rivals’ national recruiting rankings (No. 31 in the 247 Composite).

Most importantly, Kentucky has a homegrown superstar in the 2019 class.  In a year when the Kentucky produced eight four-star prospects, Mark Stoops could not let them all leave the state.  There are now four 2019 commitments from the Commonwealth in Kentucky’s 20-person class.  Another four-star in-state talent, J.J. Weaver, could join Robinson and Co. in Lexington by the end of the month.

On the field, Kentucky will get an explosive athlete that can make plays from multiple positions.  Primarily a slot receiver at the next level, Kentucky’s offense will be incredibly dynamic with Robinson and Lynn Bowden catching passes from Terry Wilson.  Many people have compared Robinson to Bowden, but there’s one significant difference that will benefit Robinson: he has played receiver in high school.  It took time for Bowden to learn the slot receiver position.  Once Robinson adjusts to SEC speed, he should be able to fill in seamlessly.

Robinson will be a star for the University of Kentucky.  It doesn’t take long to see why.

      probably made a “we got him” and a “we didn’t get him” article ready to go and as soon as the announcement was made pulled the trigger

      No but people got alerts before he announced. Like he hadn’t announced yet and ksr was posting about it

    • I’m guessing there was a severe lag in the transmission of the video.

    It’s really not shocking at all. Kid wants to play for a competitive team, make an impact, and have his family be able to watch him play. UK was the best choice for those things.

      Great news, but if I’ve learned anything it’s that football verbal commitments don’t mean anything.

      No but let’s not forget the early signing period is coming up real soon.

    But now how does he get some bootleg-ass looking shirt to make the announcement at the end? Get some official UK gear, son!
