Ty Robinson

Ty Robinson announced on the first day of the December signing period that he'll play for the Huskers.

Another 2019 Husker signee became a top-100 recruit when defensive end Ty Robinson of Gilbert, Arizona, was rated No. 91 in the country by Rivals, which on Tuesday published its final rankings before the February signing day.

Running back/receiver Wandale Robinson of Frankfort, Kentucky, who is already enrolled at NU, also jumped 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 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 has six four-star recruits in the class according to the composite. Safety Noa-Pola Gates of Gilbert, Arizona, would make a seventh should he pick NU at the Polynesian Bowl on Saturday.

The rest of the Rivals top 250 was released Wednesday, and two more Husker recruits cracked that ranking — Omaha Burke linebacker Nick Henrich (No. 127) and Lakeville (Minn.) North offensive tackle Bryce Benhart (No. 139). At No. 127, Henrich is the highest ranked player from Nebraska, according to Rivals' rankings, since 2008.

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 that they’d received Nebraska scholarship offers, including cornerback Sidney Williams of Mobile.

Frost was then headed to St. Louis on Tuesday night.

Nebraska also offered several prospects in Texas. Among them: guards Akinola Ogunbiyi and Kendal Septs of Sugar Land, receiver Donavon Johnson of Plano and cornerback Xavion Alford of Pearland.
