The number one football prospect for the class of 2013, Robert Nkemdiche, will be visiting the Florida Gators in Gainesville this weekend. Nkemdiche, out of Loganville, Georgia, listed his top three schools at the Under Armour All-American game is Florida, LSU and Ole Miss. Ole Miss is heavily favored for the services of this five star recruit mainly in part because of his love to play football with his older brother, Denzel. Despite that, Nkemdiche will visit Gainesville and head coach Will Muschamp. Muschamp will lean on the fact that he is a defensive guru and his developed lineman, such as Shariff Floyd, into NFL-caliber players.
Nkemdiche is a stud, standing at 6-foot-5 and 265 pounds. His speciality isn’t in pass rushing or run defense; it’s both. He can get up field and to the quarterback fast with his superior strength and will be a tough matchup, even as a freshman, against the big offensive lineman in the Southeastern Conference. Nkemdiche may just be doing his due diligence by visiting Florida but their chances of persuading him away from Oxford, Mississippi are slim to none. It’s not only that his brother is playing there but Hugh Freeze has continually demonstrated his ability to develop his team through his superior coaching ability and by possibly being one of the best recruiters in the nation.
Nkemdiche will be an Ole Miss Rebel come this spring; no doubt about it!
