Clemson realizes its in a precarious position regarding the nation's No. 1 recruit and his commitment to the program. And the Tigers' coaching staff is willing to pull out all the stops to accommodate Robert Nkemdiche and his family.
Clemson's staff will reportedly fly to Nigeria in the winter to discuss Nkemdiche's future with his mother, who currently resides in the country while serving as a politician, according to Ryan Bartow of TigerIllustrated.com and relayed by Michael Carvell of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Honestly, I don't have all that much of a problem with this. Maybe as a trustee on the University board, I would question whether this is the best use of AD funds (esp. if Dabo takes the entire staff).
However, there is nothing wrong with a coaching staff visiting with parents; in fact, it should be applauded.
I think, when you add this promotion, along with giving three, or four, Div one scholarships to questionable Div one players, just to secure one signature, it shows an almost desparate attempt for that one player. I know the kid is good, but he is making Clemson's coaching staff look foolish. Suits me.
They have went way overboard with his recruitment but what happens if, after all this, he chooses Ole Piss?
A total 180 approach from Saban's philosophy of telling recruits "we want you but we're gonna win with or without you."
