Nebraska football once looked like a favorite to land Wandale Robinson, who eventually committed to Kentucky. Now, it’s up in the air again.

The story of Nebraska football and Wandale Robinson has been an interesting one. At one time, it looked like Robinson was a strong bet to become a Husker. However, he chose to commit to his in-state team Kentucky last month.

Now though, Robinson appears to be changing his mind. Nebraska football has gained momentum in recent weeks and just last night, respected Huskers recruiting analyst Steve Wiltfong changed his crystal ball prediction from Kentucky to Nebraska.

Robinson also tweeted about a somewhat cryptic message late Tuesday night that suggests he might have something big on his mind, like de-committing from Kentucky and heading to Nebraska.

That is also not the first tweet Robinson has sent out this week that indicates that he might on the verge of changing his mind.

It doesn’t necessarily mean anything, but there is no debate that Nebraska is in the mix for Robinson, even though he verbally committed to Kentucky. Things change quickly in the world of college football and as an exciting running back, one who had more than 30 touchdowns in each of the past two seasons in high school, I’d certainly want to play more for Scott Frost than Mark Stoops.

Nebraska already has a few backs that are set to come in next season, but it’s exciting to think about the possibility of the Huskers having Robinson and Maurice Washington in the same backfield.

At this point, it’s hard to say what Robinson will do, but according to Wiltfong, if Robinson does flip from Kentucky to Nebraska football, that could place take place sometime this week.

If it does, it will be a major coup for the Huskers, who are doing what they can to finish strong before the early-signing period opens up in less than two weeks.
