Robert Nkemdiche Update: Nation's No. 1 Prospect Lists Georgia In His Top 5

Robert Nkemdiche, the nation's best prospect in the 2013 class of college football prospects (which earns you a Wikipedia page before your 18th birthday) has sort of narrowed his favorite schools down to a Top 5, per the Atlanta Journal-Constitution:

"In no particular order, my Top 5 is Alabama, LSU, Georgia, Ole Miss, Clemson … and, um, I like South Carolina, and I’m going to visit Florida and Florida State," Nkemdiche told the AJC on Sunday night.

HEY NOW THAT'S NOT FIVE, but OK. Clearly, it's far too early in what's sure to be an absolutely tumultuous process for all involved for Nkemdiche to even pare the list down to five schools. It's safe to assume that Alabama is the stalwart, Georgia has an edge thanks to the backyard advantage, and Ole Miss will hang on throughout the year because his brother Denzel will likely be a starter in the defensive backfield for the Rebels.

Some concern arose initially when a barrage of recruiting writers pressed Nkemdiche for his favorites and he didn't include UGA, but he's since had contact with Mark Richt and plans to take an unofficial visit to Athens. He's next scheduled to visit LSU and Vanderbilt.
