AJC: Nkemdiche to Clemson — Did that really happen?

Clemson has one of the nation’s largest student organizations for the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, and spirituality is part of Dabo’s recruiting pitch. How much was that a factor? “That was very important to Robert. I just think with him, Clemson was the family-type of atmosphere he was looking for. That’s what he considers for him to be family. They care about his spiritual development, as much as they do his physical development – and his social and emotional development. That was an aspect he felt he got at Clemson. That’s not a knock on LSU, Alabama, Georgia or anywhere else because they have team chaplains and everything. But Robert felt like it was stronger at Clemson.”
