Shaq joins LSU push in signing prep star Robert Nkemdiche
Baton Rouge, LA, United States (4E Sports) – Tigers great Shaquille O’Neal appeared at dinner in Texas De Brazil to persuade Robert Nkemdiche to choose Louisiana State University.
It was followed by a concert that was filled with Tiger fans courting the prized 6-foot-5, 265-pound defensive lineman.
Nkemdiche then visited LSU with his father and Grayson High (Ga.) best friend-teammate David Kamara, also an LSU target. The two decommitted on attending Clemson and have long talked about playing together in college.
Recruiting coordinator and running backs coach Frank Wilson, and the rest of the LSU staff are pulling out all stops, which appears to be making an impact.
Nkemdiche’s older brother, Denzel, plays linebacker for Mississippi, and their mother, Beverly, has been vocal in her desire that they play together.
He is expected to make his college choice Wednesday morning.
