Former Nebraska standout Wan'Dale Robinson announces transfer destination
Wan’Dale Robinson is coming home.
The No. 1 overall prospect from Kentucky in the 2019 recruiting cycle was at one point committed to Mark Stoops and the Kentucky Wildcats but he flipped his pledge during the Early Signing Period and ended up playing for Scott Frost at Nebraska.
After racking up 1,494 total yards (580 rushing, 914 receiving) of offense and 14 touchdowns in two seasons at Nebraska, Robinson made the decision to leave the Cornhuskers this offseason.
On Friday, the Frankfort native announced he will continue his college career at Kentucky.
This is obviously huge news for the Wildcats, who will be breaking in a new offensive system this season under the leadership of first-year offensive coordinator Liam Coen, former of the Los Angeles Rams. With Kentucky committed to opening up its offense next season, the team is in need of adding playmakers to the roster and that’s exactly what they are getting in Robinson.
At this time, it’s unclear if Robinson will be cleared to play immediately this season for Kentucky but the NCAA has been discussing a one-time undergraduate transfer rule that would allow players to be eligible immediately without sitting out. If that rule does not come into effect in time for the 2021 season, Robinson will need to apply for a waiver to play for Kentucky next season.
However, given the fact he’s returning to his home state, Robinson likely has a good case should he need to file a waiver.
