Clemson Tigers fans got a whole lot to smile about on Thursday afternoon when news broke that their school landed a commitment from the nation's No. 1 football prospect, Robert Nkemdiche. The 6-foot-5, 270-pound defensive end out of Loganville (Ga.) is considered a great all-around talent, and someone who will absolutely kill off the edge as soon as he plugged into the lineup.
Mississippi was thought to have a recruiting edge over other potential suitors because Nkemdiche’s brother is a freshman there, but apparently that wasn’t enough to sway his decision.
