Nkemdiche to visit LSU
It's long been assumed that the nation's No. 1 player, Loganville (Ga.) Grayson defensive end Robert Nkemdiche, will end up at Ole Miss. But the talented defender is sure making the Rebels fans sweat.
Nkemdiche confirmed via his Twitter account on Thursday night that he will indeed take a visit to LSU this weekend, likely his final trip before he announces his decision at 7:35 a.m. EST on Wednesday.
"LSU tomorrow, what up!" Nkemdiche tweeted Thursday.
Nkemdiche spent last weekend in Oxford, finally taking his official visit after taking several unofficial visits during the fall.
Ole Miss has been the favorite to land Nkemdiche since he de-committed from Clemson in November, mainly because it's the preference of his mother that he and his older brother play together in college. Denzel Nkemdiche was a freshman standout on the Rebels defense last fall.
During interviews at the Under Armour All-America Game last month, Nkemdiche spoke very highly of LSU, but has since waffled about whether he'd actually visit.
Following last week's visit to Ole Miss, Sunday Nkemdiche, Robert's father, told RebelGrove.com that he and his son are very comfortable with the Rebels coaching staff.
"I like Ole Miss because the program is on the rise and they have a very good coach," Sunday Nkemdiche said. "They're having success now. I'm very familiar with the coaching staff."
