One of the biggest gets of the Nebraska football team's 2019 recruiting class, so far, has been Wandale Robinson. The all-purpose back and top player in the state of Kentucky has been getting praise from pundits, recruiting gurus, and those who hand out year-end awards. I also think Robinson is a candidate for National Player of the Year [VIDEO]. Those who watched him play high school football knew he was a top-tier talent. On Saturday (January 5), the nation got to see what he could do when he played in the All-American Bowl.

An all-star game for high school seniors to show what they can do against some of the best talents in their class was aired on ABC this Saturday afternoon.

The Nebraska football signee was certainly up to the task. Robinson showed the exact same kind of traits that made the Huskers go hard after him in the first place.

Wandale Robinson shows he can do it all

Not only did Wandale Robinson get yards catching the ball and running the ball, but he also showed off the ability to return a kick. While a lot of people knew what Robinson could do with the ball in his hand, it was what he was willing and able to do without the ball that got the attention of one prominent Nebraska target. Offensive lineman Carson Lee is one of the Huskers top prospects in the 2020 class and he was clearly watching the game and following along online.

Carson Lee impressed by Nebraska football signee

When a highlight of Robinson surfaced on Twitter showing the all-purpose back blocking a defender to the point where the defender was taken to the ground, Lee was clearly impressed.

"Bro bro is going off," the three-star center from the state of Colorado posted on his account while retweeting the highlight. This kind of comment and the fact that Robinson is getting attention from possible future Huskers is only going to be good for morale and recruiting, moving forward.

When it comes to Carson Lee, the Nebraska football team appears to be in a dogfight with the Colorado Buffaloes for his services. Standing at 6-4 and weighing in at 300 pounds, he's got the exact kind of build Scott Frost and company would be very interested in seeing end up playing in Lincoln. The Huskers already have several cards in their deck they can play when it comes to recruiting.

Even players on other teams have noticed the dedication [VIDEO]Husker fans have to the program. Having players that are willing to do whatever it takes to get the extra yard and try to get the victory, even in an exhibition game, is something the Cornhusker coaches have talked about for a while now. Carson Lee has noticed that Wandale Robinson appears to be one of those players.
