Robert Nkemdiche Showing Interest In Ole Miss, Where His Brother Plays

Grayson's Robert Nkemdiche, the nation's No. 1 recruit, will reportedly attend the Mississippi Rebels' Junior Day this weekend. He could probably tour the country attending Junior Days every weekend if he so chose, but this one is especially newsy as his brother Denzel Nkemdiche plays in Oxford.

While hope remains slim for anybody besides the Alabama Crimson Tide, and slimmer still for programs that don't exactly crack the national top 10, it's still noteworthy, and has thus been noted. The Georgia Bulldogs missed out on a leg up in the great Nkemdiche derby by not offering Denzel, a former UGA supporter who also hails from the Peach State.

Nkemdiche the younger's mere presence on campus will actually be a boost for the Rebels. I mean, here we are talking about Ole Miss recruiting. But one shouldn't expect any big news to come of it.
