We asked fans to weigh in on the Huskers' 2019 recruiting class and to identify which prospect they believe is the biggest sleeper and the one they feel will have the most immediate impact.

After hundreds of votes, you chose Garrett Nelson for the "Hidden Gem" and Wandale Robinson for the "Instant Impact."

Both players have already enrolled at Nebraska, and both were mentioned by Scott Frost during Wednesday's signing day press conference. That's a pretty good sign both players are well on their way to contributing for the Huskers.

Robinson put up ridiculous numbers throughout his high school career in Kentucky. He marked a big recruiting win for Nebraska, which flipped him from the home-state Wildcats late in the recruiting cycle.

Robinson was the clear winner in our poll, receiving 72.7 percent of the vote over players like Ty Robinson, Noa Pola-Gates, Nick Henrich and Bryce Benhart.

"Wandale is ... coming in and learning and he is going to be able to play more than one position in his first year because of the way he learns and the way he approaches things," Frost said.

Nelson, an outside linebacker from Scottsbluff, was a decorated high schooler, making The World-Herald's Super Six and All-Nebraska team. He also helped lead Scottsbluff to the state championship game in 2018.

The race for this vote was a bit closer than Robinson's. Nelson won with 37.2 percent of the votes, edging out Jimmy Fritzsche (21.6) and Jamie Nance (21.1).

"Garret Nelson is a wild man, I love it," Frost said. "His energy is going to lead us in some good directions."
