Two members of Nebraska’s 2019 recruiting class were named Gatorade player of the year in their respective states.

Omaha Burke linebacker Nick Henrich received the honor in Nebraska, and Wandale Robinson earned the award in Kentucky. Henrich and Robinson are the Huskers’ two highest- rated commits, according to the 247Sports composite, and they will both play in the All-American Bowl in San Antonio next month.

Henrich helped lead undefeated Omaha Burke to the Nebraska Class A state championship. He logged 96 tackles this season, including 19.5 for loss and four sacks. He’s the top-ranked recruit in the state and was a member of The World-Herald’s Super Six.

Henrich committed to Nebraska in July over offers from Wisconsin and Iowa, among others.

Robinson flipped his commitment from Kentucky to Nebraska on Wednesday. The standout from Frankfort  Western Hills High School accounted for 2,698 yards of offense (1,973 rushing, 725 receiving) and 41 offensive touchdowns. He also had 119 tackles on defense with six forced fumbles and three interceptions.
