Excited for the future

From the Mother Ship, our visit with Robert Nkemdiche. 

Last year’s No. 1 recruit had mixed feelings about his first season. He thought it could have been better. Ole Miss coaches banking that his sophomore season will be better if he can avoid injury.

The hamstring pull cost Nkemdiche most of three games last season. He also had the position change toward the end.

The numbers don’t suggest a sub-par rookie campaign, but Nkemdiche’s expectations were higher.

Getting settled in a defensive tackle for a full season could help him meet those expectations.

    I hope he and his brother get their act together. Only saw Robert on TV but it seemed he could loose composure quick, and start mouthing or pushing others around
