Robert Nkemdiche Adds Mississippi State To List Thanks To Personal Ties

Consensus top 2013 recruit Robert Nkemdiche, a defensive end from Georgia, has been considered a likely Alabama Crimson Tide commit for a while now, with the Georgia Bulldogs and Mississippi Rebels among others hoping for a chance. He's also named the LSU Tigers, Clemson Tigers and a West Coast school or two in his lists.

But after he tweeted during the weekend that he's now considering the Mississippi St. Bulldogs, let's just go ahead and start all over. MSU does not tend to compete for consensus top recruits. So what's that all about?

Brandon Marcello has the story:

Nkemdiche, the son of Nigerian immigrants, was born in Atlanta and lives in the same home as Nick Schuessler, his high school quarterback and a recent MSU signee.

Nkemdiche moved into the Schuesslers' home less than two years ago, when he arrived at Grayson High as a ninth-grader.

Scheussler and Nkemdiche talk about Mississippi State often, considering the possibility of playing together. Schuessler is a two-star quarterback, according to Rivals, who committed to the Bulldogs in January. Dan Mullen's staff hasn't had a lot of contact with Nkemdiche so far, but you can bet it spent much of its week so far trying to change that.
