Transfer Tracker: Nebraska WR Wan'Dale Robinson enters the portal
The Transfer Portal has changed the landscape of college football. So at Rivals we bring you the Transfer Tracker, where we analyze players entering the portal and rate them on what kind of impact they could make at their new home.
AS A RECRUIT
Robinson had a national list of offers and saw a strong push from schools like 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.
POTENTIAL LANDING SPOTS
While he will likely have a lot of options, Robinsons seems destined to end up back home at Kentucky.
“Wandale is an electric playmaker and always has been so he’s an immediate impact player at a destination that is likely already known. He was expected to be used as a Rondale Moore type and we saw some of that but should see more of it in a new offense.”-- 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 Rivals.com 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.
