If anyone understands the type of microscope Johnny Football has been under in recent months, it may be Ole Miss defensive end Robert Nkemdiche. As the nation’s No. 1-rated recruit coming out of high school, scouts have been drooling over his 6-foot-5, 265-pound frame since he was a boy.
If there was ever a misstep, he made the news. If there was ever a tweet he wished he could actually delete without having anyone see it, he made the news.
Someone, somewhere in Starkville, MS (home of Ole Miss’ arch-rvial Mississippi State) is constantly looking out for ways to tarnish the image of Nkemdiche and his brother, sophomore linebacker Denzel.
So it seems only fitting that the Rebels star – who actually has never played a game before – would join the list of fellow student-athletes who have taken to the social media site in order to voice their support of the reigning Heisman winner.
