Breakout star? Wan'Dale Robinson reacts to being the talk of Kentucky's spring
One of the hottest newcomers to the SEC this season is Nebraska transfer Wan’Dale Robinson at Kentucky where he became the talk of the spring for many of his teammates throughout the roster.
He was asked about that on BBN Tonight by Keith Farmer.
“It’s exciting,” he said. “At the end of the day, I just wanted to come in and work. I just wanted to come in and help this team win and get to the next level that we want to go to. I’m just going to continue to do what I have to do and hopefully people continue to say my name.”
Robinson arrives at UK as a Swiss Army knife-like multi-purpose threat. At Nebraska last season, Robinson led the Huskers with 51 catches and 461 receiving yards despite playing only 8 games and splitting duties at running back. He also led Nebraska with 696 all-purpose yards.
Robinson’s transfer brought even more headlines in the Bluegrass because it was a homecoming. After the 2018 season, he was the state’s consensus top player as a senior at Western Hills High School in Frankfort, Kentucky.
Coach Mark Stoops said earlier this offseason that Robinson was a welcome sight.
“We needed dynamic playmakers, as you know,” Stoops said, per 247Sports. “Those are the guys that change those digits on the scoreboard. We need some guys like that.”
EVERYBODY WANTS TO TALK ABOUT WAN’DALE ROBINSON!!!!
