The news of Robert Nkemdiche’s commitment to the Clemson Tigers stunned most of the recruiting world Thursday evening. It’s been less than an hour, and already multiple analysts have expressed doubt that the commitment will stick.
Most notably, Barton Simmons of the 247sports network tweeted:
Robert Nkemdiche has committed to #Clemson but I’m hearing he did so without his father on board. This one ain’t over.— Barton Simmons (@bartonsimmons) June 14, 2012
Parents play a major role in a player’s recruitment, and if Nkemdiche’s father did not give his approval or wants Nkemdiche to consider more factors and take more visits before making his final decision, then this recruitment could be far from over.
