Robert Nkemdiche Will Make Ole Miss Rebels an SEC Force in 2013
The Ole Miss Rebels were not the class of the SEC last season as they were a woeful 3-5 in one of the toughest conferences in the land. Second-year coach Hugh Freeze has his word cut out for him but, the addition of Robert Nkemdiche and others will definitely help his cause this NCAAF season.
Nkemdiche was previously committed to the Clemson Tigers last June but rescinded that decision later on in the summer making Ole Miss the new front-runners. Nkemdiche hails from Loganville, GA and of course was courted by all of the top-notch collegiate programs including those closest to home in Alabama Crimson Tide and the Georgia Bulldogs.
His older brother, Denzel Nkemdiche had to play a part in this decision as he was the Rebels best defensive player last season with 82 tackles out of the secondary–just three days removed from the HarBowl and we’re already seeing brother reconnect. Go figure.
This signing is making waves because of Robert’s ability to look like a boy amongst men his entire high school career–in fact he was the number one player in the country from seasons beginning to end in 2012-13.
At 6-foot-5 the Defensive End seems to be a perfect fit for what Freeze is trying to do in the nations most brutal conference. His ability to get off of the ball has been compared to that of South Carolina State Defensive Linemen Jadeveon Clowney who took the world by storm this Bowl season.
It’s good to see a program that was just 2-10 in 2011 make such a big step in the right direction but, the expectations may be too much too handle in Oxford this season.
