National Signing Day in American football terms is when the class of 2013 recruits send in their signed Letters of Intent to the colleges of their choice. The amazing part is, even though it is 2013, recruiters are still relying on fax machines for National Signing Day amidst all the other communications technology available to them.
Defensive end Robert Nkemdiche is regarded as the best overall player in the Class of 2013. As previously reported by The Inquisitr, Robert Nkemdiche was said to have committed to going to Clemson college back in June, but most every recruiting analyst believed that Nkemdiche would join his brother at Ole Miss.
As a junior, Robert Nkemdiche led Grayson to an AAAAA state championship victory and in the process was named a second-team All-USA player, recording 78 tackles with 18 sacks during the course of the season. In addition to his defensive prowess, the star athlete also tacked on 17 rushing touchdowns to boot.
According to ESPN, Robert Nkemdiche held a 7:30 am ET press release to announce his college destination. As analysts predicted, he’s heading to Ole Miss.
Robert Nkemdiche explained his reasoning following his announcement:
“I feel like it’s the right place for me. I feel like they can do special things and they’re on the rise. I feel like going to play with my brother, we can do something special.”
Sports Illustrated says that, if you want to turn National Signing Day into a party, “the three universities that we know of hosting Signing Day parties at Buffalo Wild Wingses (Buffalos Wild Wings?) are Miami, Southern Miss and New Mexico State.” In the meantime, we can also poke fun at the traditional methods of football recruiting still used on National Signing Day.
How long are we gonna keep up this fax machine business? We're basically those people that get dressed up for renaissance fairs.
