Among the biggest recruiting victories of the class, Robinson didn’t come easily. He looked like a sure Nebraska bet, then changed his mind last minute and committed to Kentucky on Nov. 1. But the Huskers kept at it, sent Ryan Held and Troy Walters to visit him during the postseason contract period and he flipped to Nebraska on Dec. 5. He’s a dynamic offensive threat – Robinson had nearly 2,700 offensive yards and 41 offensive touchdowns as a senior and more than 10,000 yards and 118 scores for his career – and looks to be a perfect fit as a do-it-all player in Scott Frost’s offense. He is an early enrollee.
Offensive coordinator Troy Walter's take
"Wandale is an explosive, dynamic, versatile athlete. He played offense, defense and special teams, so he’ll be able to help out in those two phases, on offense as well as special teams. We can move him around, he can play outside, inside, running back. He just brings that versailtity that fits so well in this offense."
