Defensive end Robert Nkemdiche from Grayson High School in Loganville, Ga., has two schools on top of his list.
“Ole Miss and LSU would be my top two right now,” Nkemdiche told ESPN RecruitingNation. “I would not say Ole Miss is on top, but they are really high.”
Ole Miss appears to have an advantage because of the presence of redshirt freshman linebacker Denzel Nkemdiche, Robert’s brother. Their mother hasn’t hid her desire to see her two sons play together at Ole Miss.
But LSU is making a strong push for Nkemdiche, who originally committed to Clemson before reopening his recruitment in November. LSU was a strong suitor for Nkemdiche’s services before he committed to Clemson in June.
“LSU is still up there, I will be honest with you,” said Nkemdiche, who’s ranked the nation’s No. 1 prospect by ESPN. “I love LSU and they are a great school.”
Nkemdiche hasn’t decided when he will take his official visits. Alabama, Florida and Clemson remain in the mix, according to Nkemdiche.
“I plan to make my commitment in early February, either right before or on signing day,” he said.
