Wandale Robinson 

Nebraska is looking to stock up on playmakers in the 2019 recruiting cycle, and so, it's easy to see why Wandale Robinson (Frankfurt, Kentucky) is a high target for Scott Frost.

Robinson has been a touchdown machine this fall for Western Hills, and that continued Friday. The 5-foot-9 four-star prospect had seven touchdowns, including five in the first half, in his team's 55-42 win against Woodford County.

The game was delayed because of lightning. According to the Frankfort State Journal, coaches agreed to play the rest of the game Friday night instead of pushing it to Saturday so Robinson could make his official visit to Alabama.

Robinson rushed for 181 yards, caught four passes for 94 yards and threw a pass for 53 yards.

Robinson told the Lexington Herald-Leader on Sunday that Nebraska is the leader in his recruitment, but that could change.
