You’ve seen “Blessed to receive an offer from _______,” across football recruiting Twitter for quite some time. I regret to inform you that all of those offers are unofficial. The first of August marks the first day college programs can officially extend scholarship offers.
The University of Kentucky handed out quite a few official offers today. The biggest name to receive one is Wandale Robinson. The Mr. Football candidate from Western Hills in Frankfort showed off the official graphic from UK on Twitter this afternoon.
Robinson’s recruitment was once a two-horse race between Kentucky and Duke, until he became one of the hottest names on the recruiting trail this spring. Duke is now out of the picture, replaced by Alabama. This weekend Robinson was in Tuscaloosa, posing for pictures next to Nick Saban.

Robinson’s other finalists are Purdue, Michigan, Ohio State and Nebraska, all of which extended official offers today. He will use a video to announce his commitment, one that could drop soon.
