The Nebraska football team had been hoping to get Wandale Robinson into Lincoln one more time. Possibly the top Huskers target still on the board is going to be making his final college decision on November 1. The Cornhuskers were hoping they could get a final sales pitch in before that day. It turns out the running back out of Kentucky won't be taking any more trips anywhere. That's the bad news. The good news is that Nebraska is considered in the final three for his services. The Omaha World-Herald reports Robinson and his family have "absorbed all they need" ahead of his commitment date.

Wandale Robinson's family weighing the pros and cons

Dale Robinson, Wandale's father told the paper the family will now go through a brief evaluation period of everything they've seen. That includes the sights and sounds they took in when they came to see the Nebraska football team in September. The running back got to see the atmosphere that surrounds a Husker game, even if he didn't get to see the game himself. The family was in town for the tilt against Akron. That game was canceled due to lightning. The Cornhuskers are making it up on the schedule this weekend.

The other two schools that have apparently made the final cut are Ohio State and Kentucky.

There was a time when the Buckeyes looked to be running away with Robinson's affections. Scott Frost's offense starting to turn the corner has apparently convinced the 4-star prospect and number four all-purpose back that Lincoln has plenty to offer. During the game against Minnesota, the star back tweeted out that he was quite impressed with the 398 yards the Huskers put up in the first half.

One day later he simply tweeted, "can't go wrong with your gut feeling."

Nebraska football is the best fit

One of the reasons the Cornhuskers have made inroads is the versatile way they use players. While Nebraska has three running backs committed in the 2019 class, they have just one wide receiver. It's possible Robinson could find a way to get on the field as a kind of hybrid player his freshman season.

He's got the hands, amassing 41 career receptions to go along with his 6,000 yards rushing.

It's also got to be a draw that Frost and company have no qualms about getting a freshman back on the field immediately. Carries are spread out too. Take one look at what the Nebraska football team did with Devine Ozigbo and Maurice Washington against Minnesota and you start to see a plan form in Wandale Robinson's mind that could have him playing in Memorial Stadium on Saturday's next year.
