Recruit watch: 4-star RB dazzles in season debut, will visit Lincoln for Akron game

Wandale Robinson

Wandale Robinson and the end zone were meant to be paired together.

The four-star running back prospect (Frankfort, Kentucky) is high on the Huskers' radar. He opened eyes Friday, finishing with 294 yards and five touchdowns in Western Hills' 50-15 win against Estill County.

Robinson rushed seven times for 108 yards and two touchdowns, caught three passes for 121 yards and two touchdowns and returned a punt 65 yards for another score.

That's five touchdowns. It was nearly seven. Robinson returned an interception for a 100-yard TD and scored on an 84-yard run, but both plays were wiped out by penalties.

Robinson, rated fourth in the nation at his position by 247Sports, will be on his official visit to Nebraska for the Akron game.
