The World-Herald is counting down the top 50 Nebraska players you need to know heading into the 2019 season.

The hype is high for Robinson. And the talent is real. Recruiting services think so, with the Kentucky native ranking 15th among all Nebraska commits by 247Sports since it began tracking in the early 2000s. Nearly the entire Husker coaching staff was part of his in-home visit last winter and raved about him in the spring. Most top programs nationally offered the electric playmaker, who totaled 118 offensive touchdowns and 8,582 yards from scrimmage as a prep star. Minor injuries kept Robinson out of the Red-White scrimmage, so he’s yet to show what he can do at the college level. Expect to see him take off right away — he would have the ability to do so even if receiver and running back weren’t both positions of need entering the season.
