Wandale Robinson will Officially visit Alabama and has a New Leader



The most explosive football playmaker in the state of Kentucky is nearing a decision.  Before Wandale Robinson commits, he’s completing his official visits.

This weekend Robinson will be in Tuscaloosa to see the SEC on CBS matchup between the Crimson Tide Texas A&M.  He’s already taken official visits to Purdue, Michigan and Nebraska.  Robinson told the Herald-Leader’s Ben Roberts that as of today Nebraska is the leader in his recruitment, although it’s still completely up in the air.  He has one more official visit and will take it to either Ohio State or Kentucky, a place he’s visited quite often.

Robinson was in Lexington last weekend to watch the Cats take on Murray State.  Since Vince Marrow took over his recruitment in the spring, he’s developed a close bond with the Big Dog.

He’s really kind of become like a father to me,” Robinson said he talks to Marrow daily. “He’s really just been that guy that, during the recruiting process, he hasn’t really been harping on me or anything. I mean, obviously, he really wants me to come there. But he hasn’t been like really hard on me.”

Marrow was on the sideline next to Mark Stoops Friday night when Robinson recorded 365 all-purpose yards and four touchdowns for Western Hills.  A do-it-all athlete that plays running back and receiver, he’d like to play both at the next level.  It’s part of Kentucky’s recruiting pitch to the in-state star. UK’s coaches are telling Robinson he will be the marquee signee of the class if he decides to stay home.

“Obviously me being from Kentucky, I would be a homegrown guy, and obviously after football, I’ll have a life that most people don’t with everybody knowing who you are and stuff like that,” he told Roberts.

“Knowing that everybody will know who I am and know that I played at Kentucky and I’ll be able to go just about anywhere and somebody will know who I am, that obviously is something that’s really, really good to me.”

Robinson does not know exactly when he will commit, but he plans on making a decision in October.

    Stand down Naysayers…after we go 10-2 this season we’ll pick up some more Stars…my calculations n sources tell me we have a better chance than the Tide…because he will START AT UK! He will be a #2 or #3 at Alabama!

    Nebraska is a winless dumpster fire! What in the world?! They’re at their absolute bottom. Why would he go there?!

      Obviously, you’ve never been to Lincoln, Nebraska!
      There you will find world renown cultural sites like the Lester Larson Tractor Museum, the International Quilt Museum, and the National Museum of Roller Skating. Oh yeah…and corn…lots and lots of corn.

    UK has to do what ever it takes to get this kid. Send BIG DOG in and get him to come here. I’m sick and tired of Kentucky kids going someplace else. Come on now do what it takes. And then again if he how’s elsewhere then get someone better.

    Those quotes don’t sound like they came from someone who is leaning toward Nebraska. What am I missing here?

      More importantly, why on earth would ANYONE be leaning towards Nebraska?

      Nebraska is 0-2 on the year, and lost to Troy.
      Surely he jests.

      Maybe it’s code to give UK’s coaches the ol’ silent verbal without coming out and saying it. I’m going with that theory. 🙂
