Robert Nkemdiche’s mother “unhappy” with Clemson, per ESPN
The mother of Robert Nkemdiche, the nation’s No. 1-ranked prospect, told ESPN The Magazine that she is “unhappy with Clemson.”
The 6-foot-5, 280-pound defensive end from Grayson High School committed to Clemson last June.
Robert’s mother, Beverly Nkemdiche, resides in Nigeria and works in politics as a state legislator. When Beverly visited with her son over the summer, she told ESPN she was surprised how serious Robert’s commitment to Clemson was being reported:
“His decision is not final,” she says. “He’s just a teenager, and people are forgetting that. We had never discussed Clemson, and I am unhappy with Clemson. I’m not there, so I don’t know for certain, but I feel like Robert was pressured into this decision.”
One of the main reasons that Nkemdiche committed to Clemson because at least three of his Grayson teammates will be playing for the Tigers next season, including his best friend since middle school, DB David Kamara. Grayson coach Mickey Conn also played football and roomed together with Clemson coach Dabo Swinney while they were at Clemson.
Robert told the AJC in a recent interview that he was “solid” with his commitment to Clemson. He also stated that he is interested in visiting other schools, including USC and Oregon, but hasn’t set up any trips yet.
