On Tuesday night, 4-star RB Wandale Robinson, in the Class of 2019, announced his de-commitment to Kentucky.
On Wednesday, Robinson committed to Nebraska. Scott Frost is building his first full recruiting class for the Huskers and this was certainly a major addition for the program. How Robinson pans out, of course, remains to be seen.
However, some guys that Frost has already brought in, like QB Adrian Martinez, have already showed their potential. Robinson in the backfield with Martinez could be a scary one for opposing Big Ten teams for years to come.
Robinson knows this and had a few things to say expressing his confidence.
Wandale Robinson not shy about his goals, telling 247Sports: “I want to lead the Big Ten in all-purpose yards, win the Paul Hornung Award and down the line the Heisman Trophy.” More quotes included: https://t.co/30tEX306FY via @SWiltfong247

More of what Robinson said:
“They were telling me they’ll do everything they can to make my college experience go the way I want it to go, being on offense, special teams and accomplishing all the goals I strive to get,” Robinson said. “It was really the opportunity out there and the opportunity I have to be part of that offense and a place that has a need for me where I can play running back and receiver at the same time.
“Obviously having Adrian Martinez as the quarterback and the way they played at the end of the year, things are looking good for next year. The way this 2019 class looks too.”
Nebraska’s 2019 class now ranks No. 22 nationally and No. 4 in the B1G.
Again, look out for this backfield in the near future. It looks like it will be a dangerous one.
