Fittingly, the bizarre recruitment of the No. 1 overall college football prospect, DE Robert Nkemdiche, ended in outlandish fashion on Wednesday morning.
Anyone paying attention to Nkemdiche’s attire could have seen his decision to attend Ole Miss from a mile away, as he was sporting a bowtie and — as he revealed after his announcement — a set of suspenders that would make him look right at home during a tailgate at The Grove.
Not only that, Nkemdiche’s brother Denzel — a rising sophomore DB for the Rebels who was seated on stage along with his and Robert’s parents — removed his suit jacket following the announcement to reveal the exact same outfit.
Also, considering how highly touted a recruit Nkemdiche is, someone at Ole Miss should probably inform him that he should refer to his future school as “Ole Miss” or the “University of Mississippi,” not the “University of Ole Miss.”
