What Wandale Robinson’s Flip Means for Kentucky

@19AllAmerican

@19AllAmerican

Kentucky’s top-ranked 2019 commitment has de-committed.

It stinks.  There’s no other way to spin it.

A top 100 athlete and the state’s Mr. Football, Wandale Robinson was the perfect poster boy for Mark Stoops’ first class after an historic nine-win season.  An affable and explosive star, Robinson was the perfect person fill a position of need as Kentucky’s offense transitioned from the Benny Snell era into Terry Touchdown’s hands.

Robinson’s decision to flip creates a void, however, the biggest impact isn’t on the field.

Recruiting Apathy

Wandale’s decision will hurt morale more than it will Kentucky’s roster.  This is the kind of decision that will make some fans never follow football recruiting ever again.  It’s not just the flip, it’s how it happened.  First reports of the flip surfaced while he told reporters he still planned on signing to UK in two weeks.  That’s a tough pill to swallow.

“I regret that things happened the way they did,” Wandale said.  “It was never my intention to hurt or mislead anyone or play any sort of ‘game.'”

The football recruiting machine chewed up Wandale, spit him out and took fans on an unpleasant ride.  De-commitments happen all the time, but this one will leave lasting scars on the Big Blue Nation.

Time to Step Up

Wandale was penciled into Kentucky’s starting “Y” position — the second slot spot that David Bouvier played in 2018 — as the heir apparent to Lynn Bowden.  Lynn is still going to be Lynn in 2019, but he needs help from others in the 2017 recruiting class.

Bowden was one of five receivers in the class.  JaVonte Richardson, the second-highest ranked, had to attend junior college to improve his grades.  He’ll return to UK in January.  Isaiah Epps and Josh Ali have a combined 25 career receptions.  Each have had a good game or two, but have been inconsistent potential deep threats.  Clevan Thomas showed the most early promise by catching 3 passes for 28 yards and a touchdown in the 2017 spring game as an early enrollee. Last season he redshirted.  In 2019 No. 18 needs to live up to that number’s good name to make sure the Cats don’t miss a beat without Wandale.

If the 2017 class doesn’t figure it out, others are waiting for an opportunity.  The 2018 class brought three players who played in four games and redshirted.  The 2019 has two incredibly fast targets, TaeTae Crumes and Demarcus Harris.  The talent is there.  It’s time to step up.

UK still has Recruiting Momentum

Just because Kentucky lost their top-ranked recruit, doesn’t mean the class is toast.

Five days ago the Cats got a commitment from a four-star Louisville pass-rusher, J.J. Weaver.  Tomorrow they’re expected to receive a commitment from another four-star Louisville linebacker (and previously an Oregon commit), Jared Casey.

Stoops and Marrow aren’t only targeting four-stars from Kentucky.  Four-star South Carolina cornerback Jammie Robinson hosted Mark Stoops on an in-home visit last night.  A week ago Stoops was visiting four-star Louisiana wide receiver Devonta Lee.  Both will officially visit UK on the final weekend before signing day.  If Kentucky lands just one they’ll finish with a top 30 class, a.k.a. one of the best in school history.

Losing Wandale Robinson is quite the buzzkill.  Since Kentucky dismantled Louisville to end the regular season, everything had gone right for Kentucky football…until now.  Despite the loss, Kentucky’s in position to finish the final two weeks of the recruiting season on a high note.

      yep that is smart, every kid that did not pick UK is getting paid. The ignorance shown in the comments is comical. So when we were getting kids to UK instead of OSU, Bama, and others I guess we wrote the bigger check. When we got the one and dones, bigger checks right. Just stupid.

      Good riddance. The kid seems to be a head case. I’m not sure how good Wandale is anyway. People who compare him to rondale Moore are just silly. Choosing Nebraska is highly questionable. Nebraska is a shell of its former self and frost won at a school that recruits by itself and they literally played no one.

      If he knew all along he was going to end up at Nebraska, and he ‘played this game’ with the recruiters and BBN, then he is not the caliber kid we want at UK anyway, because ‘TROUBLE’ always follows kids that think this way. Best wishes Wandale.

      Multiple 4 star guys from in state (the second coming soon), strong class out of Ohio. Richardson coming back. A QB from LA that is lighting up the scoreboard in the same style we’re going to be playing.

      We’re #28 in the country after Robinson’s flip. That’s one of the best rankings in program history. What’s not to love?



    • Cole28

      It looks very different on ESPN. We were #34 before the decommit, and still counting the JC transfer who’s offer we pulled due to eligibility issues. Literally only one 4-star guy left. According to ESPN, it is statistically the second worst class since stoops took over.

      I’m not saying its not a decent class, but “epic” is a massive exaggeration. Unless ESPN is fake news. lol

      Cole…idiot you need to know stars are not that important. It is like the rankings…just peoples opinion of the player or team. There are many 4 and 5 star guys that never even played a down of college football. There are many more 3 star to not rated guys in the NFL than there are 4 and 5 stars. Give me a 2 or 3 star that wants to be the best, wants to work his a$$ off and get better over your 4-5 star players that think their doo doo does not stink and they just have to put in 3 years of college football to be a pro. You want Elam players, that is your 4 and 5 star rating, or do you want a 2 star Josh Allen. A 3 star Benny.

    Commitment is such bad terminology for what they do. Expressed intention to a school seems way more appropriate. Really does look like he rode UK for Mr Football. But that is more a problem that the state of Ky has created. Never did like that UK commitments had upper hand for Mr and Mrs sport for the state. So it has now bit ky in the butt. Hoping the powers to be make it perfectly clear “school intentions” will no longer play a role with the selection committee.

    The only people who really care about this, outside of the program itself, are those who write about, hype, and spin it professionally.

    With the weapons we will have on offense, I don’t think this will affect us too negatively.

    But with that being said, he straight up lied to everyone time after time after time. We may have dodged a bullet by not having a kid that manipulative in our locker room.

      He lied. That’s not an assumption at all. He basically said himself he knew he was going to Nebraska the whole time. I hate it when a young man does something completely wrong and idiotic and everyone says, “well he’s just a kid”. When your kids disobey you and do something incredibly stupid do you tell them it’s ok because they’re a kid? No, you punish them and hope they’ll learn from it. He is not a kid, he’s an adult, just not a very good one.

    BBN:

    Wandale is talented kid. He will likely do well at Nebraska. I sincerely hope he achieves all of his dreams. But he will not make Nebraska a winner and will not change their program. He would not make Kentucky a winner and would not change our program. Winning in college football is no different than success anywhere else. It is a culture, not an individual. Louisville put all their eggs in one basket with Lamar Jackson and we see how that ended; temporary at best. Rondale Moore is PHENOMENAL, but he didn’t make Purdue a winner at 6-6. Damien Harris is a very talented kid. He’s had a great career at Alabama. He didn’t change Alabama. He isn’t even one of the Top 5 running backs they’ve had under Saban. This season, he literally has half of the rushing yards and rushing touchdowns as Benny Snell, and has less than 3,000 career rushing yards in four years.

    Wandale wants to play for a team that will most benefit him, not him benefit them. That’s not a shot at him—that’s what 95% of a kids his age would choose. He wants an offense that, win or lose, go winless or undefeated, will put up 600+ yards of offense each game and he’s promised to be part of that. Not getting Wandale hurts. I want all homegrown talent to wear the blue and have Kentucky Pride. But we will be fine.

    We get the snubbed, overlooked, hungry kids with chips, not stars, on their shoulders. Randall Cobb, Benny Snell, Lynn Bowden, Josh Allen . . . I could keep going, but these are just four recent transformational players who have profoundly changed Kentucky football’s culture, shattered our record books (in Josh’s case, two sacks in the bowl game and he breaks the SEC single-season record!). That’s Kentucky football. The slighted whose impact will be felt for many, many years. I think that DNA of our team’s culture can go back to four kids: Greg Page, Nate Northington, Houston Hogg and Wilbur Hackett. Four slighted kids who changed college football forever.

    Kids coming out of high school that are All-World Mr. Everything want more sizzle than steak. All Scott Frost had to do was say he had the #27 Total Offense in the country — not that they were 4-8 and finished third-to-last in their league, again — and that Kentucky has the #100 Total Offense in the country out of 129 teams. Plain and simple, if Kentucky wants high school offensive superstars then we’re going to have to overhaul our offensive strategy and output. On average, we throw the ball very little and we score very little, and we play conservative and safe to control the clock. We haven’t had a Top 75 offense under Stoops. Kids like Wandale, especially at his position, want no part of that.

      All that is true BUT unless he was hanging his hat on Danny Clark being his QB (clearly not the case), u tell me what’s changed in this equation since his “commitment” let alone since his interview yesterday. Our offense doesn’t help us w receivers, that’s a fact, but if ur featured, u will get air time and a shot against future NFL DBs every week. His mendacity is what makes him a poor fit for our program not our play selection in this case.

    We have had remarkably few bad actors in this program lately. If u told me we had a chance w a great athlete but the kid had serious integrity issues and ask should we take a chance, I’d say pass. Not worth it. Grammar u can address, lateness issues, bad habits people can fix, but character and integrity u can’t. U have it or u don’t. I said give him a chance to make good on his word, or reveal him to be what he is. Changing ur mind, it happens. But he just outright lied: coming to UK and recruiting people there at a time two insiders had already been told the flip would come today. Folks, bullet dodged. THAT we do not need.

This is just disrespectful to the schools receuiting. Don’t commit and say you are going to sign and then enroll early. When you aren’t for sure. Why waste everyone’s time.

      The only thing I have seen was the videos posted here against som pretty typical Kentucky High School teams.
      And his commitment video.
      They both were similar, because they both were self promotion.
      I really enjoyed the commitment video. He was pretty good in that.

    He never was committed anyway. He was wavering when their was a possibility of Braum coming to Louisville. Either you want to be a Wildcat or you don’t. He didn’t so let’s move on. The grass sure isn’t greener in Nebraska. Hasta la vista corn husker.

    We are on a recruiting uptick at this moment, we have young talent at the receiving level, and bodies ready to step up. We are knocking it out with good defensive players wanting to join the class. We could really pick up some more 4 star talent, between now and signing day. I believe Wandale needed to get away from Kentucky, and he made the right choice for himself. We cannot fault a child for not making the right decision the first time, who else wishes they had went back sometime, and choose another path? Lets just wait until people sign, and then talk, because this is “College Football Recruiting” We could lose more before signing day, but pick up more as well.

      The kid made a decision based on what is most advantageous for him. He owes us nothing. Fans who trash the kid because he switched to Neb need to GET A LIFE! We will be fine.

    • I have no problem with him following his heart. But “Respect my decision” for these guys is a knee slapper. Respect which one? The first one, or the second one, or…

    I think that Wandale just realized that he was not tough enough to play in the SEC, and moved to a conference that has a weaker schedule

    According to this rivals article, it looks like what frost did with D’anthony Thomas won him over…from the kid’s mouth. Which can loosely be equated to our lack of offensive diversity.

    I heard from people I trust he had an “understanding” with Nebraska, but committed to UK to ensure he won MrKentucky Football. I’m told he was going to flip no matter what, but his ideal situation was Brohm at UL, but when he turned it down, he stuck with Frost. If that’s true, then good riddance, we didn’t need him

    We want the ones that want to be here. That simple. If he doesn’t want to be at Kentucky, he isn’t a thought. He’s a no-star. If he had Nebraska on his mind the whole time then he’s either a dbag or a dmbass. Neither matters cause he’s not gonna be here.

    The staff will find good players like they always do…

    I shouldn’t have, but I read one line of that article…. “hurt morale…” Wtf are you kidding?! Feminine Harris went to Bama and UK still won 9 games and had our first, 1st team All-SEC running back in some time. The only thing that hurts morale here is when a kid gets injured or does something stupid.

    In the end, you either play for yourself or you make the team better. I don’t care about the how or the why of the ones that don’t want to sign with UK. Just want the ones that come here to do well in the games and in life

    One recruit cant make or break a football team. It’s not basketball and everyone needs to remember that – one player cant single-handedly do anything for an entire season in football without consistent talent around them. There’s no clearing the lane in a football game.

      Cats646 ur right. That’s some bad parenting. It’s not the decision it’s the dishonesty. U want to play in a cornfield, knock urself out. U like Frost’s offense more than Gran’s, fair enough. U want to rack up frequent flyer miles making two connections to Lincoln, enjoy the peanuts. But when u say u are 100% committed and are recruiting for UK as evidence of ur commitment and u actually have already told Nebraska (hence the leak) then ur just dishonest. And that we don’t need. He doesn’t need understanding or respect, he needed parenting and a dose of integrity. Let’s move on to someone w the values AND the skills we need.

    I just read an article where Robinson said Frost and his staff basically promised him he would be an all American and win the Heisman. Unless he plans on playing QB I do t see that happening kids good he ain’t Heisman good. Plus you aren’t going to win a Heisman on a team that wins 4 or 5 games. Might win more next year but not like the big 12 with ten teams is all that good. Good Confrence for offensive players cause no one on ghat Confrence plays defense.

    Yeah my bad there in the big 10 west. Just as bad though. How does a team like Northwestern win there side of the Confrence but not even win a non Confrence game. They where 0-4 against non Confrence opponents. All I can say is have fun. I just don’t get it. Even if I agreed with decommiting and going somewhere else it makes more sense with kids like Harris to Bama or Jarren Williams to Miami. But Nebraska. There’s a reason there called fly over states. Just dosent sound very appealing if I was a college kid. If I left Kentucky atleast put me near a beach somewhere.

    Football is a team sport and culture is most important. I think we’re moving in the right direction in that regard.

    If the sports media must broadcast these announcements, make it so it’s done on the first day of signing and the kid signs the LOI on TV.

    Recruiting is tough on these kids. Raise your kids to be good people and they don’t want to disappoint anybody. Then expect them have the fortitude that few have.

    He’s definitely overrated. He’s in the Rondale Moore mold but not quite at the same level with burst quickness or strength and that’s the difference between all conference and second string in a power 5 conference.

    why do we care about a kid who is dishonest and don’t want to be here. Go to the big city of Lincoln, great place to be in the winter. He’s not as bad as that bum from Richmond who went to BAMA who said on he was still undecided and 2 days later committed to Bama and said he had made that decision a month ago. I still remember him coming to the UK / UNC basketball game acting like he was coming here. He has championship rings but still no class. I hope the Cornhuskers have a losing season next year.

    Lets move on. Wish him the best. He will be replaced! And I’ve been saying this since we got him, we have a 5* QB in my eyes that no one talks about. Amani Gilmore from LA will be a NFL draft pick if he doesn’t choose the MLB route (already a top prospect in MLB draft). We also have Travis Tisdale, top 100 rb who in my opinion is better than Robinson and plays harder competition in GA. He’s a 4* similar to a boom and shifty like SiFi, whom we get next yr for a sr. yr. If we can get Lee (teammate of Gilmore) and the 4* corner from SC plus Casey from Ballard, we won’t even remember this minor setback. We’ll be fine! 9-3 or better next yr! We never have done that and we will! We are on the rise bbn and we’ll get more 4* talent and maybe one 5* every 3-5 years. I see the foundation just gotta keep building consistency

He commits to UK, then wins Mr Football, and then less than a week after Mr Football, he flips to Nebraska!?!? That’s not suspicious at all, is it? Did he just commit to UK to get more Mr Football votes? If that’s the case, then that’s a bunch of BS!!! Just saying.
