Nebraska wide receiver Wan’Dale Robinson, who led the Cornhuskers with 51 receptions this season, announced via social media on Monday that he intends to transfer.
Robinson posted on Twitter that his mother contracted COVID-19 and that it has complicated matters due to her previous health issues. He said he intends to transfer to a school closer to his mother’s home in Kentucky.
As a freshman in 2019, Robinson had 40 receptions for 453 yards and two touchdowns for the Cornhuskers before he collected 461 yards on 51 catches this season with one TD. No other Nebraska player had more than 18 receptions in the 2020 season.
“To my teammates, I will miss you guys more than you’ll ever know and I wish you all the best of luck on the next season,” Robinson posted. “I hope the bond we created will not be broken based on where each of us play. I will cherish every moment I had with you guys and my love for all of you won’t change.”
Nebraska went just 3-5 in the 2020 season, all in Big Ten Conference games, but did win two of its last three contests.
