Western Hills star Wandale Robinson, one of the state’s most exciting players and the frontrunner for this year’s Mr. Football award, will announce his college decision on Thursday, Nov. 1.

Robinson, a four-star recruit who’s amassed more than 2,000 total yards through seven games this season, is down to a final six of UK, Alabama, Michigan, Nebraska, Purdue and Ohio State. He will reveal his final choice via Kentucky.com.

November 1 was the birthday of Robinson’s cousin, Shanna Davis, who died recently. He chose it to honor her memory.
