Loganville's Robert Nkemdiche surprised the college recruiting landscape by committing to the Clemson Tigers on Thursday.

Robert Nkemdiche surprised everyone on Thursday when he committed to Clemson during an on campus visit to the school. There had been rumblings throughout the day that something was up with Nkemdiche and he made it official joining two of his high school teammates who also have committed to play for the Tigers.

ESPN's Kipp Adams reported the news first.

"I did commit," Nkemdiche said. "I love Clemson."

Nkemdiche had been considering many schools including Alabama, LSU, Ole Miss and Georgia. He was the recruiting priority of many schools but at least to this point Clemson has won the first battle by securing commitments from two of Nkemdiche's teammates in Wayne Gallman and David Kamara.

Nkemdiche was expected to make his decision much later in the recruiting game and maybe even wait until National Signing Day. Nothing is binding about his commitment to the Tigers and don't expect any teams to quit calling just yet. However, they all may have much more work to do.
