The top football recruit in the nation for the 2013 class has decommitted from Clemson. Robert Nkemdiche, out of Loganville, Georgia gave a verbal commit to Clemson in June, but is now considering other options. Nkemdiche’s high school coach, Mickey Conn, told ESPN that the 6-foot-5, 265 pound defensive end super-prospect has backed out of his commitment to Clemson, and is now considering Ole Miss, Alabama, and Georgia.

Nkemdiche’s brother, Denzell, is currently a linebacker for Ole Miss, and this appears to be his top choice at this time. He will make an unofficial visit to Ole Miss this weekend with his parents — his fourth trip to Ole Miss since committing to Clemson. Assistant coaches from both Ole Miss and Georgia are expected to attend Nkemdiche’s high school game this Friday night.
Nkemdiche has yet to confirm any of these reports, as he maintains that he is committed to Clemson. He refuted any rumors to the contrary and has made no further comment.
