Wan’Dale Robinson leaving Nebraska football
He led the Huskers with 51 catches and 461 receiving yards despite playing only eight games and splitting duties at running back.
LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) — For the second straight year, Nebraska football is losing its best wide receiver.
Standout sophomore Wan’Dale Robinson announced he’s entering the NCAA transfer portal on Monday.
In a social media post, Robinson thanks Nebraska for two seasons. The Kentucky native intends to find a place closer to his family. Robinson said his mother tested positive for COVID-19 and was hospitalized this past year.
“To my teammates, I’ll miss you guys more than you know and I wish you all the best of luck next season,” Robinson writes. “To the best fans in college football, Husker Nation is like no other.”
A member of the 2020 Paul Hornung Award watch list after being a finalist for the award last season, Robinson again proved to be a key and versatile player for the Nebraska offense as a sophomore. He led the Huskers with 51 catches and 461 receiving yards despite playing only eight games and splitting duties at running back. Robinson was also fourth on the team with 240 rushing yards, and led Nebraska with 696 all-purpose yards.
Last year, the Huskers’ top returning receiver, JD Spielman, entered the transfer portal as well.
