Yikes.... she speaks the truth, maybe she is just busy, but I feel like there is a more polite way to address the topic. Just my opinion.

my favorite part: paraphrase, families need to come together.

So she moved 3000 miles away from her family. way to practice what you preach. this lady is going to be the next Cam's Dad. Dabo better stay away from her.

Robert should follow his heart and his original plan. I don't see him backing out of his commitment to us and his 3 other friends. I believe he is too big a man to do that. His Mother, though a very special lady, I'm sure, won't be a factor in the visits he gets from family and friends. She lives 10,000 miles away. Robert needs to remember that.


You're right. I think that was already established though...


Posted: Nov 1, 2012 10:33 AM
 

...as she spends most of her time away from home and in another country. I can't imagine why anything she thinks would matter to RN concerning where he will spend the next 4 years of his life.


Re: You're right. I think that was already established though...


Posted: Nov 1, 2012 4:00 PM
 

She is his Mother, and I do not underestimate the impact she possibly can have. I hope he will follow his heart and what he knows is the right thing to do which is to honor his commitment to us and to his friends who also are counting on him, but this will be a real struggle emotionally for him if he is going directly against his Mother's wishes. That said, I hope he honors his commitment, as it is time for him to be his own man.

This is all about convenience for mom and $$$ for Dad


Posted: Nov 1, 2012 8:41 AM
 

Rumor has it RN's dad will take a job in Jackson, MS. So when momma decides to fly to US, she can see her busband and have a short drive to Oxford, MS to see her sons.

Unfortunately Clemson is on the opposite end of the that spectrum!


Really hard to infer here as she is pretty clear that her

Older sons decision should influence her younger sons decision because it will be the most convenient situation for her. Anyone think Peyton would have liked papa bear steering him to ole miss. They were as bad on the field back then as they are now

its just irritating she keeps making news and says crap like this. she sounds like "if its not convenient for me I'm not gonna do it". It's only the biggest decision her son has made to date but all she wants to do is be negative.

Also, she let one son choose on his own so why be so vocal about this one when he has ALREADY made his choice.

What do you like about Tigernet?

“I’ve never been to Tigernet. I’ve not talked to anybody from Tigernet. I don’t want to go there because that’s out of my virtual way. There is nothing that would take me there. What took me to Ole Miss's forum was not a place for informative football discussion. I haven’t been to any other forum. Honestly, if Denzel was not at Ole Miss, I wouldn’t have registered an account. My No. 1 team is Alabama. That’s one school I truly love, Alabama. Tidefans is the tits. But I don’t have a child in Alabama to take me to Alabama. But my son is in Mississippi at Ole Miss. Rebel yell. That’s what took me to Mississippi....that and the movie the Blindside. So I’m not going to travel all over the place just to talk to coaches. Thats ignorant. No, I won’t. I’m not being Spurrier or anything. It’s just not in my schedule. I just went to Ole Miss to visit with my son. I had a wonderful opportunity there to talk with the coaches and the academic people on their football forum.”

She has no reason to go visit Clemson?! Her son is committed there! That's not a reason?! She loves Alabama, but has never been there....hmmm. Denzel should've been better and got better offers. Why punish the younger son and make him go to sorry ### Ole Miss? I also find it hard to believe that nobody from Clemson has spoken to her. If that's the case then that's just stupid.

she sounds like she doesn't speak to her own child, and when she does, he either lies to her or she doesn't believe him. How can she not know anything about Clemson? She obviously reads everything mentioned about herself in the media, but none of the stories/quotes from her child gushing about Clemson and the coaches?

She maintains that RN was pressured into committing to Clemson, even though she says that he told her that he wasn't pressured. ?? So is he a liar? Evidently.

At this point I don't consider him a member of the 2013 class. In my mind we still have a solid class with Daniel, Boulware, Dye, Pagano, Robinson, and Kearse and it could get better by adding Crowder, possibly North, Adams, and Alexander. Keeping Nkemdiche would be icing on the cake honestly. We have Daniel committed, Lawson will be here in January, I'm not too worried.


That is one of the most selfish things I have ever read

I can't imagine not wanting to check out the schools my kid was considering.

Based on the the stories and the articles about RN's recruiting and homelife, it seems like he's having alot of pressure put on him. That's alot of crap to have to deal with as a 17 year old kid, along with his mom basically living full time in another country. Lot's of craziness that he has to deal with.... alot more crap than most normal kids.

I think we should all just chill out and ease up on RN. Hopefully, he decides to stick with Clemson, but I think we should all try to put ourselves in his shoes before making comments about him.

Contradictions abound in that interview. Not pressuring him, but hanging the "family" over his head to encourage him to do what she "wishes" and "prefers". Wow.

I'm sure the coaches are keeping in touch with him - & there must be a reason no direct contact has been made with Mama Nkemdiche.

She hasn't even given Clemson a chance. She won't even acknowledge Clemson..............why? Because it seems that her interest isn't in what is best for her son but rather in what she can GET out of her son. I feel for my young brother. Clemson will be more of a home to him than this cold woman it seems. Clemson needs to be a shelter for this Man. Show him how a family is supposed to be. This woman seems only invested in her self.

having to visit 2 sons at 2 different colleges. I usually side 65/35 with the parents in these type of cases, but this woman doesn't want her sons interfering with her schedule. I guess that's why she lives in one country , they live in another, when she visits, she wants to kill 2 birds with 1 stone.

Anyways, Dabo in solely in charge of his recruiting, if this is not a parent "shopping" their kid around, he'll be a TIGER.

I feel Robert will make his own decision and that will probably be to attend Clemson. That being said we should just back off blasting anyone except the AJC. They are insignificant as are most newspapers in today's world. They are going the way of the Dinosaurs. Also most of the negative posts are coming from the coots and dawgs.

talk as a family very often.

According to her RN hasn't told her anything about Clemson, his Father found out he verbally committed while watching basketball on ESPN, and when she found out the first thing her mind went to was that he was pressured and she asked about that but nothing else about Clemson.

Posted: Nov 1, 2012 2:47 PM
 

knowing anything about the great school her son committed to [as well as brought along his high school teammates] but then be so concerned with him following her other son to Ole Miss? Along with that, the ignorance factor involved is through the roof. This is like saying, "Ehhh, I've never heard of MIT, and I don't want to know anything about your academic scholarship offer to MIT. I know Georgia Tech and my other son attends Ga Tech, so that's where he should go." LOL.

Mrs Nkemdiche, WADR, you're gonna be out of the country seeing to your other family, so what's it really matter to you other than being an overbearing attempt to stamp your control on something?


Re: Reading the whole article it doesn't seem like they really


Posted: Nov 1, 2012 7:15 PM
 

Yea I agree, this is extremely strange. Whenever I hear her talk, you would think Robert had never visited Clemson or even considered it really. It's almost like she's dispelling rumors...yet he remains committed.

He seems like a good guy and obviously he's an incredible football player...I would love for him to come out and just give us the vote of confidence, but I don't see that happening. I can't imagine the sh*t storm of media he gets from every direction, and it sure doesn't help that his mother is openly lobbying for other schools in the media.

The worst part of it is the longer he stays committed to us and the more his mom talks about how she doesn't care about Clemson and will never visit Clemson, the more the media is going to invade the situation in order to get the latest sound byte.

It's really just an extremely strange situation. Hopefully him and his boys are just laughing about this in the locker room while listening to Tiger Rag...but I don't expect that's the case haha.

Her having an outspoken opinion on Robert's choice IS putting the most pressure on Robert. The opinions of the media, coaches, and fans do no hold a candle to the opinion of the mother. However, a mother is not right to hold their opinions over their children's head because of their status and emotional ties. People can stuggle their whole lives fighting for the approval of a parent and it is usually due to the parent deciding to voice every criticism and never letting baby bird fly out of the nest and make their own decisions.

Also, she doesn't even seem to care about the fact that she is basically letting her son Denzel, make his own indepenant decision that has the caviat of also being the other son's choice. When Denzel goes to the NFL, will she expect Robert to follow him to that team? She needs to know that her sons will grow MUCH more if they are allowed to branch out. They'll always be brothers but they will not always be football teammates.

It sounds like Nkemdiche's mother is bent on having her son go anywhere but Clemson. She seemingly is not looking at Clemson or giving the Tigers a fair shot. I'm not gonna knock her for it because to her, she's looking out for her son and that's understandable. However, based on this interview, she's not feeling Clemson at all. I ultimately think that Nkemdiche will end up at either Ole Miss or Alabama because that's how his mother wants it. I'm hoping that I'm wrong, but it looks to be the case.


Re: Recruit Update: AJC: Nkemdiche's mom talks Clemson


Posted: Nov 1, 2012 5:49 PM
 

I have to say that if my son made a commitment that and I thought he was "pressured" into anything (regardless of what he told me), I would be on the phone to that school to find out what was going on so fast it would make your head spin. How can a mom NOT get involved in learning everything she can about this school that impressed her son enough to end his recruitment by giving a verbal commitment to? Do you honestly believe she is willing to talk to the Clemson coaches (DS) and HE has NOT called her? I guarantee that he has tried to talk to her and that they are constantly in touch with RK. I am sure there is more going on here than we know. I also know that if my mom was telling me where to go to school when I was 18 (and I could go anywhere) I would tell her that it is my decision, not hers and I would go where I wanted to. That is what growing up is all about...cutting the apron strings and making decision on your own...good or bad. I'd like to see this young man come to Clemson because I know how special a place it is...but then I want everyone to go there for the same reason. I think he will play on a bigger stage at Clemson than he ever will at Ole Miss. Ole Miss is years and years away from being a dominant team...Clemson is on the cusp right now. But go wherever you think is best for you Robert. This isn't a decision your mom should make for you...it was your hard work and dedication that got you here...not your mom.

seemingly primadonna attitude will suddenly disappear just because RN steps foot on campus? There's a possibility it gets even worse once he's enrolled. Could you imagine hearing 3 years of crap from his mom or any other backlash that could ensue if things don't go exactly how RN & family loftily dreamed it up?


She sounds like she could use an english class...***

if she cared even a little about her son or sons, she would not have left them just to promote her polictical life.She is not a Mom....she was just an incubator.

Since when did Ole Miss become the Duke of the SEC on the academic side? Come on Mrs. RN...do some basic homework and grab a copy of US News and World Report Academic Rankings.


Thanks for you thoughts, B$v$rly

chose on his own." Notice that the older son is not at Alabama and younger one is not considering them either. She strikes me as someone who understands, and does not care about, all the song and dance that goes into recruiting.
