Recruiting never stops and it's easy to miss the top stories day-to-day. Recruiting analyst Greg Smith recaps all things Nebraska recruiting news, analysis and more so you never miss a thing.
We have an announcement date and time locked in to officially end Wandale Watch. Wandale Robinson, a 4-star athlete (HV Rating: 91.7), announced on Saturday when exactly his recruitment would come to an end.
Robinson is Nebraska’s top skill position target on offense left on the board for the 2019 class. The Huskers are attempting to win his pledge over Alabama, Kentucky, Ohio State and Purdue. Robinson is having a sensational senior season so far with 2,481 total yards and 37 total touchdowns. For good measure, he has 96 tackles on defense with 11.0 tackles for loss.
It was a defensive play that flipped the game for his Western Hills High School team on Friday night.
When you want it more than the other team some times you just have to go take it!!! What a great play by @robinson__era . A big strip and then TD to make a HUGE momentum swing in the victory last night. pic.twitter.com/vFUm8lHlXy

Robinson visited Lincoln for an official visit on what was supposed to be the season opener against Akron. Later on this week, we will know his college decision. He would be an early enrollee as well.

>> Over the weekend, I noticed that 2021 defensive back Markevious Brown from Pahokee, Florida, tweeted this during the Nebraska game.
I caught up with Brown to see about his interest in the Huskers.
“I am extremely interested," Brown said. "Nebraska is definitely one of my favorite colleges and I always dreamed of playing for the Huskers.”
Brown was able to meet defensive back coach Travis Fisher when Nebraska took part in a satellite camp in Florida.
>> Nebraska running back commit Rahmir Johnson is continuing to put up big numbers during his senior season. He’s going to have a big role in future Husker offenses.
