Another 2019 Husker signee became a top-100 recruit when Glibert (Ariz.) Higley defensive end Ty Robinson was rated No. 91 in the country by Rivals, which on Tuesday published its final rankings before the February signing day.
Frankfort (Ky.) Western Hills athlete Wandale Robinson, who is already enrolled at NU, also jumped up 37 spots to No. 61 in Rivals’ rankings. The Huskers haven’t had a recruit rated that high by Rivals since running back Aaron Green in 2011.
ESPN and 247Sports, the two other major recruiting services, have not yet released final rankings for the 2019 class. Nebraska does not currently have a top-100 recruit on either site.
Both Robinsons played in the All-American Bowl this month and are four-star recruits according to the 247Sports composite, which takes an aggregate of all the major rankings. NU currently has six four-star recruits in the class according to the composite. Safety Noa-Pola Gates, should he pick NU at the Polynesian Bowl on Saturday, would make a seventh.
Making the rounds
NU coach Scott Frost was in southern Alabama on Tuesday as the Huskers continued evaluating prospects for the 2020 class.
Frost was in the Mobile/Gulf Shores area for most of the day. Several prospects announced on Twitter they’d received Nebraska scholarship offers, including Mobile Vigor cornerback Sidney Williams.
Frost was then headed to St. Louis on Tuesday night.
Nebraska also offered several prospects in Texas. The list includes: Sugar Land Kempner guard Akinola Ogunbiyi, Sugar Land Austin guard Kendal Septs, Plano John Paul II receiver Donavon Johnson and Pearland Shadow Creek corner Xavion Alford.
