Robinson had a national list of offers and saw a strong push from Alabama, Ohio State and Purdue. However, his recruitment came down to Kentucky and Nebraska, with him surprisingly committing to the local Wildcats during his senior season. But that commitment lasted only a month before he flipped to Nebraska.


Robinson stepped right into the lineup and actually split time between running back and wide receiver as the Huskers did whatever they could to get the ball in his hands. He finished his freshman season with 340 yards and three touchdowns rushing and 40 catches for 453 yards and two scores.

In 2020, Robinson played mostly wide receiver, catching 51 passes for 461 yards and a touchdown, while also rushing for 240 yards a score. Robinson entered the portal and landed back close to home at Kentucky, where he will have three seasons of eligibility remaining.


“Wandale to Kentucky is no surprise because he was always interested in the Wildcats and was committed there at one point. With a new offensive scheme he will get 20 touches a game and be a massive difference maker from many positions.”-- National Recruiting Director Mike Farrell

Impact Rating: 8.9 out of 10


The Transfer Portal continues to change the way college football programs recruit and mange their rosters so we here at continue to evolve our coverage. Each time a player of note enters the portal, we will examine their potential impact on the college football landscape and assign an impact rating, both when they enter the portal and when they choose a destination. The scale is from 1-10 and the description below explains the scoring scale.

1.1-4.0 — Not a big impact expected, likely a non-starter and down the bench depth player.

4.1- 6.0 — A solid impact can be expected in the right scenario and has the potential to battle for a starting job.

6.1-9.0. — A high impact player who won’t change a program but will certainly be a very good contributor and starter.

9.1- 9.9 — A very high impact player who should start the moment he steps on the field and will change the outlook of a program immediately.

10 — A franchise transfer who has a chance to be an All American and one of the elite players in college football.
