Robert Nkemdiche Update: Alabama Losing Ground?

Grayson's Robert Nkemdiche, the nation's No. 1 2013 recruit, has long been a presumed Alabama Crimson Tide commit. Whether Nkemdiche himself knows it or not, you see, because he's a highly heralded recruit in the Southeast, and thus will almost certainly end up at Bama.

But according to his high school coach, that's not quite the case any more:

"You know, at one time, I think that [Alabama being the leader] was the case," he said. "But he's got five schools, Alabama, Georgia, Clemson, LSU and Ole Miss and I think he'd be happy at any one of those five."

The Georgia Bulldogs offer the chance to stay home, while the Mississippi Rebels could pair him with his older brother. Of course, it would not be surprising at all to see him announce for Bama when the time comes in May.

Either way, his top five has been reduced from eight to five (stay with me), and UGA's still in the running.
