Wandale Robinson makes Huge Move in 247 Sports Rankings



After an excellent senior season on the gridiron, Kentucky commit Wandale Robinson made a giant leap in the recruiting rankings.

When Robinson committed to Kentucky, he was considered the No. 245 player in America.  In the recent rankings update by 247 Sports, he jumped 131 spots.  One spot ahead of Tua’s young brother Tualia at No. 114, Robinson is the top player from the state of Kentucky and the nation’s No. 2 all-purpose back.

In his final season at Western Hills, Robinson compiled 3,112 all-purpose yards and 47 total touchdowns.  See his best moments from his senior season below.

Robinson is the only Kentucky commitment in the Top 247 rankings, however, five other recruits from the Commonwealth made the cut.

  • #157 Stephen Herron, Stanford
  • #163 Jacob Lacey, Notre Dame
  • #164 Milton Wright, Purdue
  • #175 Tanner Bowles, Alabama
  • #192 Bryan Hudson, Virginia Tech

      Isn’t he enrolling after this semester?

      He has already visited all the big name schools that we would have to worry about, and picked UK. This doesn’t change that at all.

      It’s not like he was some 3-star recruit that broke out at a camp over the break like Mac Jones. We recruited and signed him when he was known quantity. We didn’t steal a sleeper. We just legitimately beat out the big dogs.

      He knows he’s getting the ball and may play on both sides. HE could be another legend at Kentucky and a good one! When’s the last time we had a ky kid play on both sides and return kicks probably! I can’t remember one of the top of my head!

      Why so negative? We need playmakers. Wandale is a playmaker. He feels good about how Wilson has progress this season. (I do too). The young man already knows he can go anywhere he wants and he sees himself fitting in with this team. He impressed me as a young man who considered everything before making his verbal. One comment below, “I’ve seen this before/” I doubt if you’ve seen us beat Florida in the swamp before, or rank 3rd in the SEC in number of victories against SEC teams. We will be putting at least two more playmakers on the field this coming Fall and that will make a hugh difference in our firepower. You can be negative if you chose of course. I’m not going to call you names or whatever. I just think we are adding some really important pieces in this incoming recruiting class.

      Bill I couldn’t have said it half as good. I agree 100% with you and we are moving in the right direction. Thank you.

    Excited to see him in UK Blue! Good to see him getting recognized for all of the hard work he has put in to achieve what he has.

    Hope you guys are right, but I’ve seen this before.

    Odds we sway some of these other “committed guys”?

      I’m with you. Think what an 11 – 1 regular season would have done for the in-state recruiting. That said, a 10 – 3 season should be enough to convince some of the guys to stay home and play for the Cats. Of the five I would really like to see the DL guys, Herron and Lacey, become Cats.

    We have a legit qb recruit who has been over looked due to his height as well.

    Can’t wait to see how we get him 1-2 touches per game while Billy Bob returns punts.

    There are 4-5 receivers, 1-2 backs, 2 TEs, and a QB on the first team depending on the formation. If we get Benny 25 touches and run 50 non-kicking plays, we have 25 plays left for 9 other players. The QB will likely get at least 5 solo plays but more likely 7-8. That leaves 20 for 8 other players.

    Do the math. That’s 2.25 touches per remaining skill player. The Cats rotate more receivers than just 5, so it drops further. They have to make the most of each target and touch so the Cats have more snaps, and then they can get the ball more.

    First year QB in a new system making reads at SEC speed… It’s not basketball
