Robert Nkemdiche’s Cancelled Visit to LSU Could Start New Trend
Robert Nkemdiche cancelled his visit to LSU at the last minute, which all but confirms the nation’s No. 1 college football recruit will play at Ole Miss. The news is devastating for the Tigers, who are looking to revamp their dominant defense in an effort to knock Alabama off the top of the SEC and overall college football mountain. However, missing out on Nkemdiche may only be the beginning of LSU’s problems.
The buzz around the college football landscape these days includes a negative connotation regrind LSU head coach Les Miles, who is a defensive mastermind, but is a subpar offensive coach. His defenses are always among the nation’s best while his offenses…not so much. How does that affect Nkemdiche, a defensive end? It really doesn’t as far as his play on the field, but knowing that he’ll be on the field a lot because of LSU’s incompetent offense definitely had to have had at least a little influence on his decision not to visit.
Of course, Nkemdiche could change his mind and still take a trip to Baton Rouge before national signing day, but that’s unlikely at this point. The five-star recruit absolutely “loved” his visit to Ole Miss, where he has several family ties, including his brother, Rebels linebacker Denzel Nkemdiche. Obviously, that also has a lot to do with Robert’s decision, which seems all but made, but the fact LSU has come so close yet so far in recent years could easily have impacted his decision and those of star defensive recruits who will be making their choices this year as well as the ones to come.
