Top Recruit in College Football Chooses Clemson
The college football recruitment process is one that is always in-depth and features many players changing their minds often on schools. One player that has a ton of hype surrounding him is the top overall prospect in the entire country in defensive end Robert Nkemdiche. Nkemdiche is from Loganville (Ga.) Grayson, and is considered to be one of the most touted prosepects to be coming out Georgia since way back when Herschel Walker came out in 1980.
While Nkemdiche apparently had quite a few teams on his list, the one that eventually got his talents came as a bit of a shocker. After a bit of debate, he decided to head to play for the Clemson Tigers and Dabo Swinney. He had said that the Tigers were always one of his favorites, but it wasn't until he took a visit there that people actually began believing that he might actually head to South Carolina. The expected destination for Nkemdiche was the Alabama Crimson Tide, and there was also a good bit of hype surrounding the Georgia Bulldogs as well, who hired Daryl Jones, who was the assistant coach of Nkemdiche's high school team during his freshman year. Another reason why people believed he could have chosen the Bulldogs is because they signed his team's quarterback Nick Schuessler as well.
Things started to get interesting when David Kamara, who plays defensive back for Grayson, chose to go to the Tigers. He is one of Nkemdiche's closest friends, and they had stated that they were planning on going to the same college from the word go. Nkemdiche tweeted this past Tuesday that he was "Going to visit Clemson tomorrow my boy Wayne already up there." This put a ton of interest from the college football world on his decision. On Wednesday he tweeted that he was "Coolin with my boy Sammy Watkins talking football."
Ladies and gentleman, that is what you call a wrap. Regardless of what you think about his decision to go to Clemson, they have one of the best college football traditions in the ACC, and are definitely on the rise right now. It wouldn't surprise many to see the Tigers compete for the ACC Championship this season either. Nkemdiche said his choice of college would be one that would not only get him to the NFL, but also get him on the field, and it seems as though Clemson will be a great fit all around.
