No. 1 prospect Nkemdiche decommits from Clemson


Grayson (Loganville, Ga.) senior Robert Nkemdiche, the nation's No. 1 football prospect, has decommitted from Clemson, according to his coach.

Rams coach Mickey Conn told early Thursday morning that Nkemdiche had decommitted.

"I think he's still very interested in Clemson, but he's got a brother (Denzel) who goes to Ole Miss and he's got other schools that he likes as well," Conn told the site. "He's going to clear his mind and take some other visits."

Rumors surfaced yesterday that Nkemdiche had decomitted from Clemson and planned to commit to Ole Miss, but the star defensive end/running back texted "Nothing final yet" to the Atlanta Journal Consitution late last night.

Conn has not yet returned messages from USA TODAY Sports seeking further comment. Nkemdiche's mother told the AJC, "Let me check with Robert and get back with you about that."

The 6-5, 260-pound Nkemdiche, a preseason American Family Insurance ALL-USA selection, has 40 tackles, including eight for loss, through nine games this season. He's also rushed for nine touchdowns.
