Robert Nkemdiche Postpones Commitment Announcement

Robert Nkemdiche, the top recruit in the class of 2013, will not make his college decision in May as previously thought.

The defensive end from Loganville, Ga. told the AJC:

"I'm just not ready yet," Nkemdiche said. "This is one of the biggest decisions of my life. I want to go see some new places, and go back to some other places to spend more time with the coaches and to check out the campuses. It's a big decision, and I want to get it right."

"I'm probably going to try to take all my official visits, and then pick the best school," Nkemdiche said. "I probably won't take any visits during the season because I want to stay focused on my main goal - and that's helping our team win another state championship. I'll probably wait until after the season and then go visit schools and stuff."

That's the smart decision. There is little benefit for Nkemdiche to commit early, what with coaching changes and the 2012 season yet to be played. Some may say that Nkemdiche could avoid the phone calls and pestering of the recruiting process by getting the decision out of the way, but that is misguided, as college coaches certainly wouldn't lighten up their contact with the top recruit in the country.

This is the most important decision of Nkemdiche's life to this point, and it only makes sense to make the call based on all available information. And there's sure to be a spot for the 6'5, 265-pound recruit on any roster in the country whenever he wants to commit.
