Robert Nkemdiche Sets May 18 As Announcement Date, According To Report

The saga of Robert Nkemdiche, the nation's best prospect in the 2013 college football signing class, won't drag on through the summer, fall and into February of next year, according to Nkemdiche himself, who told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution he'll make an announcement May 18 as to where he'll be playing his college football.

Nkemdiche returned home from a visit to Baton Rogue to tour the campus of LSU, and set his top five teams headed into the decision as (in no order): LSU, Clemson, Georgia, Ole Miss and Alabama. Nkemdiche also said he likely won't make a planned visit to Vanderbilt March 31, but could possibly re-visit UGA and Clemson for their spring practices in the coming weeks.

"I’m ready to commit because I know where I want to go," Nkemdiche said. "I feel like I’ve seen all the places I needed to see, and talked to all the coaches everywhere.

"I don’t feel any need to wait any later than the spring. I’m ready to get it over with, and then I can focus on other things … my senior year of high school, my schoolwork, and helping Grayson try to win the state championship again."
