On Wednesday Kentucky fans got the news they feared. Wandale Robinson has officially flipped his commitment from Kentucky to Nebraska.
The four star RB back from Frankfort, who recently won Mr. Football, committed to Kentucky on November 1st. After the commitment, many Nebraska fans accused the Cats, specifically Vince Marrow, of paying Robinson. In the past several days, Robinson’s commitment has become weaker and weaker after saying he would be signing with Kentucky in just a couple of weeks while also saying Nebraska was still heavily recruiting him.
“I got overwhelmed by the pressure from outside influences, the pressure of staying home, and the pressure of trying to please everyone. Most people don’t realize the stress that goes on with recruiting, especially when it’s from your home state and everyone wants you to go there.”
That is a little piece out of Robinson’s statement above.
I will say that I am disappointed and think that things could’ve been handled better. After all, Robinson is 18 years old and has a lot of pressure on his shoulders. It’s recruiting, this happens. I wish him nothing but the best as a Cornhusker.
