Highly-touted defensive end Robert Nkemdiche from Grayson High School in Loganville, Ga., will announce his college decision on May 18.
“I’m ready to commit because I know where I want to go,” Nkemdiche told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “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.”
Nkemdiche told the AJC his top five schools are Alabama, Georgia, LSU, Ole Miss and Clemson. Nkemdiche gave his list of schools in no particular order (we listed them alphabetically), although Alabama has been widely considered the favorite to land Nkemdiche.
His most recent trip was to LSU over the weekend. Nkemdiche gave the visit a “10″ on a 1-10 grading scale.
“LSU felt like it was home,” he said. “They’ve got a great tradition of defensive linemen. I feel like I could do some good things there. I could see myself playing there.”
Nkemdiche could return to Alabama and Georgia for unofficial visits this spring. He had tentative plans to visit Mississippi State and Vanderbilt in the upcoming weeks but those trips appear unlikely, according to the AJC.
