Douglass

The Rivals 250 national rankings for the football class of 2019 were updated Wednesday, and Kentucky commitments Wandale Robinson and Moses Douglass were both included on the list.

Robinson’s place at No. 98 overall in the updated rankings was announced Tuesday, though there has been buzz this week that the Frankfort native could be flipping his commitment to Nebraska in the near future. A decision on that could come as early as Wednesday. (UPDATE: Robinson flipped to Nebraska on Wednesday afternoon).

Douglass — a 6-foot-2 safety from Springfield, Ohio — is the No. 227 overall player in the Rivals.com rankings. He is the son of former UK star Maurice Douglass.

Neither player was included in the previous edition of the Rivals 250 rankings.

Robinson

A final decision is expected this week from Wandale Robinson, who committed to Kentucky on Nov. 1 but is still being recruited by Nebraska — his previous favorite — and could flip to the Cornhuskers.

247Sports national analyst Steve Wiltfong and several others had logged Crystal Ball predictions in favor of a flip to Nebraska as of Wednesday morning, and an announcement from Robinson — a standout at Western Hills High School in Frankfort — could come as early as Wednesday.

Robinson is ranked by 247Sports as the No. 117 overall prospect in the 2019 class, and he’s the highest-ranked commitment for UK in this cycle. He earned Mr. Football honors from the state’s coaches over the weekend and is expected to play a large role in the Wildcats’ offense.
