Nebraska football is desperate to add recruit Ty Robinson to its defense and on Dec. 19, the Huskers will find out if the 4-star is joining them.

Even though the Nebraska football team went just 4-8 this season, the Huskers have been doing well on the recruiting trail and since the season ended, Scott Frost and his staff have been busy.

Well, Friday, everyone with an interest in Nebraska football got some interesting news about 4-star defensive end Ty Robinson, a kid that looks like a strong bet to commit to the Huskers. While Nebraska coaches recently paid him a visit, they learned Friday that he will announce his destination soon.

And according to a tweet put out by Richard Obert of the Arizona Republic, Robinson, who is also being pursued by USC, Oregon and Alabama, will make his intentions known Dec. 19, the first day of the early signing period.

Robinson would be a huge get for Nebraska football and I don’t mean that as a pun, however, the defensive end does stand 6-foot-6. This past season, playing in Arizona, he recorded 74 tackles and 34 tackles for loss. That effort has him set him up to play in the Army All-American Bowl according to the Omaha World-Herald, which also reported that Huskers defensive coordinator Erik Chinander and Mike Dawson visited Robinson at his home earlier this week.

Not that it means anything at this point, but 247sports is saying there is a 65 percent chance Robinson will choose the Huskers. A few different experts said that including Brian Christopherson, a trusted recruiting voice.

Robinson visited Nebraska football during its win over Michigan State. He also has family ties to the state and told the Omaha World-Herald that the people close to him want to him to be Husker.

"“I definitely know all my friends and family in Nebraska are rooting for me to go there. They definitely think I would just love it and it would give them more motivation to come watch some of the games.”"

If Robinson came to Nebraska, he would be the third-highest rated player in the 2019 class behind linebacker Nich Henrich and offensive tackle Bryce Benhart. He would also fill a huge void at pass rusher.
