Wan Dale Robinson will (lastly) be a Kentucky Wildcat.
Quickly after getting in the transfer portal the Frankfort native announced he will be taking his skills to his Old Kentucky Home.
Simply over 2 years ago Robinson was dedicated to play for Mark Stoops at Kentucky. The Mr. Football from Western Hills High School had a change of mind two weeks before signing day, opting instead to play for Scott Frost at Nebraska. He made a small detour, however Wan Dale lastly discovered his way to UK thanks to some assistance from Stoops and Vince Marrow.
Robinson immediately fit the billing of an All-American, setting Nebraska records for receptions and receiving backyards by a freshman in 2019. He followed that up by leading the Huskers in getting in 2020. In 20 college football games Robinson got simply shy of 2,000 yards from skirmish and was a two-time finalist for the Paul Hornung Award, provided each year to the countrys most versatile college football player.
A high school star, in his final season of football he scored 45 goals in 11 games. Whether he was at running back, broad receiver, returner or playing defense, Robinson could turn any play into a touchdown. Now the BBN will get to enjoy him make plays at Kroger Field while potentially capturing passes from a former district foe, previous Lexington Catholic quarterback Beau Allen.
Robinson gives Kentuckys offense an instant shock of volatility after several seasons of struggles through the air. A slot receiver that can make people miss out on, Liam Coens offense will target Robinson early and frequently. One can not quantify how much adding the big-play maker to the offense will assist the brand-new play-caller and brand-new quarterback in 2021.
